French producer Petit Biscuit has long been a staple in the genre grey area found at the intersection of melodic bass and ambient music. He initially made waves in the space with the 2017 release of his debut album, Presence, composed of 14 tracks of instrumental bliss. Now, with the release of its successor, Parachute, the 20-year-old artist has successfully solidified himself as a mainstay in the industry, sharing a sound as strong as ever and infused with a freshly matured point of view.
Out October 30th via Écurie, Parachute is whimsical, euphoric and stirring, aurally expressing Petit Biscuit's creative growth toward song structures rich with instrumentation and the artist's own vocals. Its nine songs are vibrant and warm, with Petit Biscuit's voice compellingly floating the listener above each track's delicately positioned sonics and pulsing percussion lines. The Diplo-assisted "Pick Your Battles," for example, is a resonating piece of mysterious, transcendental energy, while the spoken word number "Take Cover" highlights the driving guitar acoustics evident throughout the project.
