One-half of an indie rock duo called Mount Dreams, Mehdi Benjelloun also produces lean and dreamlike dance music, inspired by the likes of Bonobo, Shlohmo, and Flume, as Petit Biscuit. Benjelloun, a native of Rouen, France, started making music on his synthesizer at the age of 12 and was a quick study. Within a couple years, the multi-instrumentalist who can also play cello and guitar was uploading early recordings to SoundCloud.
In 2016, at the age of 16, Benjelloun released a self-titled EP highlighted by the dazed "Sunset Lover" and the whimsical "Once Again." Benjelloun made his first performances around the same time, including an appearance at Festival Panoramas. 2017 brought the Møme collaboration "Gravitation," one of several singles released that year which later appeared on Benjelloun's second EP, Presence.
