Electro-pop visionary and multi-instrumentalist French Original has released his 4-track Souvenir EP. The EP takes listeners on a journey infused with electro-pop, nu-disco, house, and dance-pop fearturing tracks like “Little White Lies”, “On My Mind”, and a live cover of “Around The World” by legendary French duo Daft Punk. Listen to it now below.
An amalgamation of the musical influences that have shaped who French Original is becoming as an artist, Souvenir is a deceptively complex offering. Boasting his own moody vocals and showcasing his talent for Talk Box, French Original’s newest EP is a reflection of his musical aptitude and versatility as a solo recording artist, producer, and instrumentalist.
Hailing from Cannes, France, French Original spent his early creative years busking at Cannes Film Festival hoping to find attention from the countless movie stars and celebrities on the red carpet. Since the beginning, French Original’s relentless passion for making music has taken him on a journey across the planet learning his skills with the world’s finest in the industry, initially being taken under the wing and mentored by his hero, legendary producer and mixer Jimmy Douglass, the critical element for the sound of all of his musical influences (Justin Timberlake, Missy Elliot, Timbaland, Jay Z, Pharell Williams).
French Original bridges the many gaps between dance music and electro-pop culture. His debut single “History” sent a shotgun blast into the dance music landscape with more than 4 million cumulative streams before the release of his official remix for deadmau5 and The Neptunes’ “Pomegranate” solidified French Original as one of the freshest new faces in the global dance music landscape with another outstanding follow up remix for deadmau5 “When The Summer Dies.” He co-wrote with Italian Superstar trio Meduza on their hit “Born To Love” gaining over 150 million streams. Outside of his streaming success, his musical versatility has led to a series of accolades writing and producing the Football World Cup Theme with Nicole Scherzinger for Qatar Airways, performing talk box for The Vamps and Plan B, and performing with Madison Beer, alongside co-signs from dance music heavyweights deadmau5, Oliver Heldens, Major Lazer and many more. French Original’s Twitch stream is where you can often find him giving tips on writing, production and remixing with 26k+ regular viewers.
