Petit Biscuit

French-Moroccan producer, artist, and DJ Petit Biscuit burst onto the scene in 2015 with his smash hit “Sunset Lover” and hasn’t slowed down since. While that song went on to become a multi-platinum-selling record, he’s also released multiple albums in the time since and performed on a regular basis throughout the globe. After beginning with FL Studio at a young age, he’s continued using the DAW ever since, and we’re pleased to welcome him as an official FL Studio Power User.

Petit Biscuit in the Studio

Tell us about yourself and how you got into music.

I started playing the cello at the age of 5, but I’ve always been drawn to electronic music. I listened to a lot of it with my older brother. When I started composing, the blend between acoustic and electronic influences naturally came together.

How did you start using FL Studio & what does it mean to your productions?

I was looking at videos of producers on the internet and came across one of Avicii using FL Studio. I was 12 years old when I saved up for a few months to buy my first computer, with the sole aim of composing my own music. Since then, I’ve never stopped producing. I’m learning every day, and it’s really exciting.

Tell us about your work and some of the artists you have worked with.

Most people know me for my song “Sunset Lover”. It’s not my favorite, but I’m grateful for the love the track gets! I like working on my own, but collaborations take me out of my comfort zone and positively shake up my compositional process. I’ve been lucky enough to work with the likes of Diplo, Lido, Skott, Bipolar Sunshine, and more!

Tell us about your production environment and the gear you use.

There was a time when I worked mainly with VSTs. But when I bought my house and built my studio inside, I went crazy with analog synths. Moog One, OB6, Juno, Prophet…since then I’ve been handling a lot more audio than MIDI. I like it a lot because it allows me to write melodies and set them in stone, and move on quickly with my productions.

What is your top FL Studio tip for up-and-coming producers?

Get out of your comfort zone and don’t be afraid to get lost in the details. When I let myself get “lost” in the process, without wanting to compose as fast as possible, it opened up a much more unique way to create for me.
