Under the newly created La Californie Musique, sophisticated producer Florian Picasso offered his latest single ‘Ay Papi’. The creative musician occupies an outstanding position on DJ Mag’s list of top 100 DJs several times, enjoying a rank of #38. ‘Ay Papi’ signature anthemic vocals both entice and wake up sleeping minds, proposing escapism to beaches inundated with golden sunsets and providing an antidote to momentary sadness. It appears that exceptional creativity is hereditary, as evident in Pablo Picasso’s grandson Florian Picasso.  Read the interview with Florian Picasso below:

What influenced the beat in ‘Ay Papi’?

I really wanted to blend my older music production imprints with the new direction I have in mind. 

Why did you choose ‘Ay Papi’ to be the title of the new single? 

Randomly in the vocal sample somewhere, it says « Papi » so I just naturally kept it

For anyone that hasn’t heard it yet, how would you describe your sound?

My sound is sexy groovy and versatile

At what point in your life did you have that moment where you said to yourself “This is it. This is the type of music I want to create?”

Every time I have a personal life crisis I feel like I need to recreate myself musically

What piece of gear could you never live without?


Studio work and music creation or performing and interacting with a live audience, what do you prefer?

Both go hand in hand, it’s like a chef preparing his dish and looking at people loving it

What’s the weirdest or most amazing reaction you’ve had to your music?

Weirdest was that I was testing a new record and I had zero energy feedback from the audience, but it didn’t stop me from dancing my heart away.

Favourite BPM?


All-time favourite album?

Daft Punk-Discovery

What have you got in the pipeline for the near future?

Lots of music on my own music label La Californie musique!
