Myd has today released his new single ‘I Made It’. The single was produced by him alongside the Picard Brothers and is out now via Ed Banger Records / Because Music.
An upbeat, piano-driven track, ‘I Made It’ is a celebration of Myd’s journey so far: from releasing his debut album deep in an global lockdown through to today – enjoying highs such as his first-ever gigs in Ibiza and Manchester where he played to thousands of fans ahead of releasing the new single. Myd is happy – and ‘I Made It’ serves to spread feelings of inspiration and ambition to all who listen to it.
“This year I have been touring all around the world, partying with my favorite artists and seeing my community grow so fast – that’s what inspired me to write this song. It’s a blessing to what’s happening to me right now and this is a conclusion to the Loser chapter. It’s time to take off”.
With funky ‘80s throwback synthesizers paired with infectious vocals, the track comes to a crescendo creating the ultimate high energy of an end-of-summer anthem. ‘I Made It’ continues themes of unity, togetherness, sunshine and nonconformity which flow throughout Myd’s music.
The track is accompanied by a live video filled with footage of Myd’s most recent tour across Europe and Australia, including his recent shows at Pikes Ibiza and Warehouse Project’s Repercussion in Manchester. Filmed by Myd himself along with his team, the video is full of his signature antics, friends, fans, and some furry creatures met along the way, capturing Myd’s distinct energy that make his live experiences so memorable.
Announced today, Myd will also release a new version of his acclaimed debut album ‘Born A Loser’, due out later this year. As well as the original 14 tracks, the release will feature new single ‘I Made It’ as well remixes and other unreleased tracks from the French DJ and producer.

Born in Lille, France, Myd is a DJ and producer whose sunkissed, indie-infused dance tracks and DJ sets have rapidly earned him a growing following across Europe. He also sings and plays guitar, with his band joining him on stage for live sets when he’s not behind the decks as a DJ.
Myd recently played a set at Ibiza’s world-renowned Pikes, before flying to Manchester for Warehouse Project’s Percussion weekender. Both performances were debut shows for Myd in those locations, but were widely hailed as triumphant sets by those who witnessed them – recruiting further followers of Myd (real name Quentin Lepoutre).
Myd’s debut album ‘Born A Loser’ was released via Ed Banger Records last year to widespread acclaim. Released during dark times for the whole world, it provided sunshine, optimism, calls for unity and togetherness – fusing a huge variety of influences, sounds and samples into one kaleidoscopic and truly unique record.
He has been nominated for a Victoires de la Musique Award (the equivalent of a GRAMMY in France), and his single ‘The Sun’ has been certified Gold worldwide. Before being known as Myd, he was a founding member of the beloved collective Club cheval, where he helped produce and remix for artists including Kanye West, Dua Lipa, Theophilus London, Brodinski and more. He was then swiftly signed by Ed Banger label boss Pedro Winter, and the Myd sound was born.
The Picard Brothers have been instrumental in shaping contemporary music over the past few years. The French duo’s songwriting and production credits reads like a who’s who of global icons – from Beyonce and Dua Lipa through to Mark Ronson, Major Lazer and Rudimental. Breathing fresh energy into French touch and soulful, golden-era house, their recent output follows a rich lineage of French dance music that can be traced back to Daft Punk, Laurent Garnier and Stardust. The Picard Brothers have reimagined and revitalized classic sounds in a way that connects with the contemporary dance music space.
