Petit Biscuit
Petit Biscuit (\pә.ti bis.kɥi\) is a 17 year old electronic music producer from France, keen to take on the world. After picking up the cello at age 5 and entering French classical music school the Conservatoire soon after, things heated up when Petit Biscuit got his first PC at 11. Editing and mixing all the sounds of his tracks himself, he excels in creating unmistakable chopped and twisted vocal leads. His first tracks got him an impressive following on SoundCloud and YouTube early on. Now with the release of his debut EP in May 2016, the delicate music of the young prodigy has started to spread like wildfire. The song "Sunset Lover", heady and recognizable among thousands, acts as its spearhead.
Mehdi, as he's known by his friends, draws from both his "real" instruments and the unusual and autonomous digital sounds he creates. On stage, Petit Biscuit plays as many real­time parts as he can, while carried away by the machines he programs. The stunning live show combines analog and electronic, interplaying sounds, videos and lights. Petit Biscuit takes his public with him into a vibrant odyssey, and plunges it into an atmosphere that feels both familiar and exotic. In 2016, he performed at the biggest French festivals (Les Vieilles Charrues, Solidays, Garorock, etc.) and in Europe (Dour Festival in Belgium), as well as in the renowned Elysée­Montmartre in Paris, selling out its 1,350 capacity quickly. Every live show he has played thus far has sold out, including forthcoming dates this April in the U.S. and Canada.
Since its release, “Sunset Lover” has been streamed more than 135 million times on Spotify alone and Petit Biscuit’s profile gets up to 1 million streams per day. His music has been viewed more than 54 million times on YouTube, and the biggest French commercial radio stations have him at the top of their playlists. His chart success speaks for itself: #3 on the iTunes main chart, #4 on Spotify, #5 on Shazam and #9 on Deezer.
Abroad, the track can be heard on Beats1 (Apple Music), BBC1 (UK), Energy & Radio Fritz (Germany), TripleJ (Australia), NRJ & PureFM (Belgium), Couleur3 (Switzerland), P3 (Sweden) and many more. His music can be found in the Spotify top 100 of up to 25 countries.
Daktyl uses his multi-instrumentalist talents and diverse musical background to make insane beat driven grooves of a new future sound which completely disregards the confines of a single genre.

Having recently completed a 32 date tour of the US and Canada with Slow Magic, Daktyl now has a string of forthcoming releases with Mad Decent.

In July, Daktyl released an official remix of Dawn Golden's 'Last Train' on Mad Decent, which sparked their interest in his music and led to them signing him.

Daktyl is one of the few British artists to be signed with Mad Decent.

The first single to be released is 'Forgettable', featuring Evan Mellows. The track embodies the essence of Daktyl's sound.

This will be followed up by a further single and the release of his first album 'Cyclical' in April 2015.

More recently, Daktyl is one of three artists to be asked to do an official remix of Flosstradamus' single 'Rebound' and premiered a remix of Dirty South's 'Unbreakable' on Hegemon's SoundCloud.

He has been featured on Billboard, noisey, Thump, Do Androids Dance, inthemix, Earmilk, Rinse FM,, TheSoundYouNeed, Run The Trap and many more.

He has also had remixes on Columbia Records, a guest mix on Toddla T's BBC Radio 1 show and has a R1 Diplo + Friends mix airing soon.

His energetic live performances have seen him play alongside the likes of XXYYXX, Baauer, Plastician, Lunice, Artful Dodger, and close for The Bloody Beetroots
