Sunset Lover Remixes - EP by Petit Biscuit on Apple Music

6 Songs

EDITORS’ NOTES

Striking a perfect balance of slow-motion beat, liquid guitar, and intoxicating vocal melody, then-16-year-old French producer Petit Biscuit’s 2016 tropical-house single “Sunset Lover” proves remarkably adaptable. Manatee Commune subtracts the guitar and adds rippling drums and delicate electronic detailing, emphasizing a vast sense of space; Clément Bazin boosts the energy with steel pans and marching-band snares. Strangest of all is Daktyl’s remix, in which hip-hop beats stumble and tempos lurch as though drunk on the beauty of those irresistible Siren-song vocals.

About Petit Biscuit

One-half of an indie rock duo called Mount Dreams, Mehdi Benjelloun also produces lean and dreamlike dance music, inspired by the likes of Bonobo, Shlohmo, and Flume, as Petit Biscuit. Benjelloun, a native of Rouen, France, started making music on his synthesizer at the age of 12 and was a quick study. Within a couple years, the multi-instrumentalist -- who can also play cello and guitar -- was uploading early recordings to SoundCloud. In May 2016, at the age of 16, Benjelloun released a self-titled EP highlighted by the dazed "Sunset Lover" and the whimsical "Once Again." Benjelloun made his first performances around the same time, including an appearance at Festival Panoramas. ~ Andy Kellman
