On Dino, his second single to be unveiled this year, FELP (aka Felix Petit) takes us on a tumultuous journey back in time. After releasing Babyfoot last month, a collaboration with Klô Pelgag, the composer, beatmaker and multi-instrumentalist joins forces with the Montreal-based artist Laurence-Anne, who wrote the lyrics of this new song.
Dino is available now on all music services.

With her angular poetry delivered in a cryptic, rhythmic way, Laurence-Anne playfully questions the prehistoric period, underlining our limited interpretations of archaeological findings. Simultaneously, FELP compiles an impressionistic soundscape made up of his soaring saxophone and experimental electronic music. The result is a calculated, chaotic track, that skillfully blends its beat with the moody, hazy voice of Laurence-Anne, with whom he previously performed live, and co-produced her sophomore effort Musivision.
If the Quebec music scene is currently going through such an exhilarating period, it's thanks to talented and versatile creators such as Félix Petit (aka FELP). Over the past few years, he worked closely with some of the most celebrated Quebec artists of our generation, as well as scoring soundtracks for television series and movies such as Les Fourchettes and Love & Lajoie. Simultaneously, the accomplished producer and musician is pursuing his solo project under the name FELP.
Born in 1990 in Besançon, France, Félix Petit moved to Montreal at the age of 18 to attend a jazz interpretation program at university. After founding the Dondepiano collective, he went on to showcase an audacious blend of hip-hop, jazz, soul and electronic music on the two self-produced EPs, Étendu jouer (2015) and Chocolop (2017).
