Petit Biscuit and his Music
It is time to dive into the music. What genre is Petit Biscuit? Critics have loosely defined him as tropical house. While there are similarities between him and Kygo, we think that his music is closer related to Odesza. Both Odesza and Petit Biscuit prefer performing live instead of DJing, and their music isn’t as dependent on drops.
Recently late at night we pressed play on his album, Presence, for the first time. We were unable to fall asleep until we heard every song on the album. Petit Biscuit created Presence at the young age of 17. The 14 track album explores natural landscapes and phenomena with song titles such as Waterfall, Ocean, Gravitation and of course Sunset Lover was included.
Our favorite aspect of Presence is the positive feelings that the album evokes. His music is soul healing. We could think of multiple situations were this album is the right choice. Imagine it’s 2:00 pm in the Gorge Amphitheater Campground. This relaxing and upbeat album would be perfect for getting your group ready for a beautiful day.
Interested in other listening material besides album work? His four recent singles, We Were Young, Wide Awake, and Suffer | Safe are available on Spotify. Watch Petit Biscuit cover 1901 by Phoenix on Triple J Radio. There are also full length performances by Petit Biscuit on YouTube!
