Florian Picasso continues his torrid pace with the sinister electro house track Vanguard. The French phenom transports us to the main stage, interweaving haunting chord progressions with soaring builds before unleashing a manic drop.
The word “vanguard” translates literally to “a group of people leading the way in new developments or ideas.” With his recent festival weapons, Florian Picasso is doing just that. Blazing a trail for hungry producers, his sonic artistry raises the bar for the future of electronic dance music.
The 23-year-old Frenchman has been rocking some of Europe’s best clubs since he was only 16, sharing bills with Swedish House Mafia, Fatboy Slim, Showtek, and Joachim Garraud. His artistic heritage runs deep through his music, as he approaches each production with meticulous precision and unique rhythm.
Florian has released official remixes for some of dance music’s most iconic, from Benny Benassi to Flux Pavilion to R3hab. His original productions have also sparked interest amongst dance music’s elite class. Kaskade enjoyed Florian’s progressive banger Artefact so much that he reworked into a huge mashup, which saw continual rotation during his Atmosphere tour. Perhaps his largest statement to date was his Dim Mak debut The Shape. Personally edited by Dim Mak chief Steve Aoki, the electro monster received massive international support from Afrojack, Chuckie, David Guetta, Borgeous, and many more.
