In 2021, Dooweet will ensure Florian Picasso’s press relations in France (Radio, television, web and written press).
You know Pablo, the painter… Today let us introduce you to Florian, the DJ. Florian Ruiz-Picasso, better known as Florian Picasso, is a French Electro Dance Music DJ and producer. Born on February 21, 1990 in Ho Chi Minh City (Vietnam), he was adopted at the age of three months by Marina Picasso, granddaughter of the famous Spanish painter.
Florian Picasso began his musical journey at the age of 13 and successfully made his way to the biggest clubs by the age of 16. In 2011, he released his very first title “Muki” and travelled the world between Asia and the United States, giving himself a few dates in France. He played his scales in Miami at the “Winter Music Conference” and released “Origami” in 2015 on the Protocol Recordings label. The title is a springboard in his career at only 25 years old. He was then spotted and managed to convince his audience at the Ultra festival in Korea and at Tomorrowland by collaborating with the famous Dutch DJ Martin Garrix on the track “Make up your mind” which he initiated. He also worked with other big names such as Steve Aoki or Benny Benassi.
In 2016, the DJ ranks 38th in the top 100 and decides to renew his style in order to broaden his audience. After 4 years of collaborations and heady mixes, from label to label, from festival to festival, the year 2020, despite coronavirus, marks the career of Picasso who releases three tracks. The latest one, “Armageddon”, featuring Timmy Trumpet, is signed on the American label Dim Mak Records run by influential Los Angeles DJ Steve Aoki.
Still among the top 100 DJs in 2020, Florian Picasso knows how to play with his origins to attract his French audience. His live set at his great-grandfather’s house, the “Villa Californie” in Cannes last August, did not leave his listeners indifferent. Where Pablo Picasso was painting his canvases in the middle of the 20th century, the artist’s great-grandson installed his turntables, paying tribute to him with a totally surrealist electro house and EDM set.
