Mehdi Benjelloun (born 10 November 1999) better known by his stage name Petit Biscuit (French pronunciation: ​[pəti biskɥi]), is a French DJ and music producer. He is one half of the indie-pop duo Mount Dreams with friend Romain Bauthier, known as Luuul.

Early life[edit]

He was born to a Moroccan father and a French mother.[3][4][5]

Mehdi learned to play instruments such as piano, cello and guitar but preferred electro house sounds as he was able to produce "unlimited combinations of music".[6] His early musical interests and inspirations included electronica and classical music. Benjelloun was a regular high school student who balanced school work by day and music by night. The name "Petit Biscuit" is said to come from his love of French pastries his grandmother would make. Giving him the smallest of each batch, his grandmother and his girlfriend at the time would pat him on the head and say, “I love you my little biscuit.”

In July 2017, he graduated from high school, with a Baccalauréat Scientifique mention très bien. From September 2017, he started studying at Paris-Dauphine University and left the university to focus more on music in March 2018 .[7]

Career[edit]

On 18 May 2015, Biscuit released his debut single "Alone".[8] He released the single "Sunset Lover" on 15 June 2015 as the lead single from his eponymous EP.[9] "You", "Palms", "Night Trouble", "Midnight Sky" and "Memories" were released as promotional singles on 15 June 2015.[10][11][12][13][14] He released the single "Oceans" on 22 July 2015.[15] He released his debut eponymous EP, Petit Biscuit on 13 May 2016.[16][17][18][19]
