Rilès is a 22-year-old singer, songwriter, composer and producer from Rouen, France. He graduated from a French scientific high school with the highest honors and then studied English literature at the University of Rouen.
Thanks to the scholarship he obtained, he built his own home-studio in his bedroom and learned the science of engineering, mixing, and mastering all by himself. Do-It-Yourself as a leitmotiv, he produced, wrote, recorded, mixed, mastered and engineered every single one of his tracks, since 2014. Aside of music, Rilès has also directed and video edited all his music videos.
Rilès is an atypical rapper. He uses US codes (language + dance) and mixes American (influenced by Kanye West, Chance the Rapper, Russ…), Kabylian and Latin sounds. Real crossover artist, Rilès is also a painter.
Rilès challenged himself to release one song per week for one entire year from September 2016 until September 2017 with no songs already pre-made, which put him into a crazy work ethic and discipline and at the same time made him gain a huge exposure all independently (+240M views on his YouTube channel).
From September until December 2017, he sold out his first tour (+30 shows) throughout Europe and North Africa.
His debut album will be out before 2019 summer.
