Sure, being the adopted great-grandson of Pablo Picasso might help in name - pun intended - but Florian Picasso’s famous surname might actually be doing him no favours. Why? ‘cause the 26-year old Vietnamese-born Frenchman was almost certainly destined for musical greatness, regardless.
Florian Picasso started making noise – this time pun not intended – since age 16! when he would open for acts like the legendary Swedish House Mafia. In the last few years he gained a lot of attention for his remixes for R3hab and NERVO as well as his releases “Can’t Stop” and “Want it Back”, and you don’t get to collaborate with the current No1 DJ - Martin Garrix – if you aren’t as insanely talented as this young Frenchman is.
Similar to Martin Garrix, Florian Picasso is constantly redefining what EDM is, shifting it towards new directions with his brash electro house influenced EDM tracks. His electro-fused house is no better exemplified by his track “Final Call”. His career is on a steep rise with Picasso not only making it into the Top 100 on DJ Mag's list, he made it all the way up to No38 as a new entry!
This Friday, we have the chance to see and listen to him up close at MYST! You want to see the future of electronic dance music? Florian Picasso is it.
