Biography

Self-taught songwriter, producer and arranger, Christophe « Teetoff » Battery has been influencing the French music market since the mid-1990s with more than 12 million records sold, and career-defining hits.

Born Christophe Battery in French Guyana on 25/03/1973, Teetoff grew up in France in a multicultural family made of talented gospel singers and artists : an authentic environment that aroused his passion for music since his earliest childhood. In 1991, he started to tour throughout the country, opening and headling major events with « Sweetness » the gospel group he formed the same year. Despite a great success, the gifted artist decided to give a new direction to his music career and develop his own producing and composing skills : making hits became the main challenge of his life.

From that moment on, inspired by his faith in God, Teetoff dedicated himself into producing high quality music. Never discouraged and after nights and months spent in recording studios, his hard work and determination finally paid off. He began to sign conclusive publishing deals in the late 1990s (XIIIBis Music (1998 – 2000), BMG and PBC (2000-2007), Universal Music Publishing France (2008-2012)), and became one of the most brillant french composer and producer.

Eclectic musician, Teetoff is able to work on very distinct genres : electro, pop, folk, R&B, hip-hop or world (…). Music knows no boundaries for him.

His professionalism and creativity led him to successful collaborations with world-renowned artists such as Chaka Demus & Pliers, Big Ali, Snoop Dogg, Ryan Leslie, Busta Rhymes, Lucenzo, N.O.R.E, Gramps Morgan (Morgan Heritage), Reda Taliani, Lukie D, Anggun, Michelle Gayle, T.Rio, or french Florent Pagny, Lâam, Lynnsha, Jessy Matador, Mokobé (among many others).

In 2006, Teetoff significantly influenced music for kids with his world-famous concept « Bébé Lilly » which was adapted and translated into more than 10 languages.

Since 2007, he has also been maintaining a long-lasting collaboration with american hip-hop/electro artist BIG ALI, for whom he has co-produced and co-composed international hits « Neon Music », « Hit the Floor » or « Universal Party » from his debut album « Louder » and singles « Distress » or « Bring me Coconut » from his upcoming album « Urban Electro ».

In 2012, Teetoff signed a publishing deal with Madison Music (Big Ali’s record label). However, driven by his achievements and even more determined to carry out his own music projects, he decided to set up « Battery Entertainment » (production company) under which he has already signed his first artists, Kevon (Pop) and Rodrigo Ace (Latin Music).

In February 2013, the multi award-winning entrepreneur created a publishing company « Teetoff Music », through which he has not only entered into contract with diferent songwriters but also co-published albums « Super Star » (Bébé Lilly) and « Da sou m tempo » (Flavel & Neto) that are currently achieving great success in France and Europe.

Lately, Teetoff was offered a catalogue administration agreement by Universal Music Publishing.
