Having firmly cemented their names as international producers , playing pivotal parts in the creation of records by Beyoncé , Diplo , Mark Ronson and Madonna , Picard Brothers have decided to step into the spotlight. Following the release of their stirring introduction, “Won’t Let Go ,” they recently released their new single “It’s Not Over.” It follows the release of a flurry of celebrated remixes from the French duo, including Flume ’s “The Difference” and the remix of David Spinelli ’s “The Promise,” released on Boston Bun’s label Circa 99.
“’It’s Not Over’ is our vision on 2020 French house music! It’s a sound we’re trying to develop on our project that is due to come later this year” – Says Picard Brothers.
Picard Brothers first entered the public consciousness almost by chance, after coming across a twitter post by renowned DJ Diplo , calling for French DJs. They sent over some of their songs and, a week later, the two French brothers came face to face with one of the biggest DJs in the world. He loved their music, and the duo soon became part of his core production crew.
The duo then found themselves as key ingredients in the creation of a number of huge hits, chiefly “ Electricity ” by Silk City and Dua Lipa , which they co-wrote with Diplo and Mark Ronson . Their extraordinary working relationship with Ronson grew into co-writing eight of the songs on his Late Night Feelings LP, including smash single “ Nothing Breaks Like A Heart .”
The duo’s stellar sample-based house music was born out of an urge to escape their small town in France. From Coulommiers, an hour outside Paris; Clément and Maxime would spend their childhood and early teens having impromptu jam sessions, inspired by popular artists; Rage Against The Machine and Michael Jackson. However, it was Daft Punk, the iconic duo that propelled their passion for electronic music, and with that the brothers learnt the ropes and hit Parisian nightlife. Nightlife will never be the same.
For their first release, Picard Brothers stated, “Working on so many different projects with artists, we always think: what would make sense for them? So now we’ve asked ourselves the same question.”
