Thread: Madeon

  1. #1

    Default Madeon

    This kid is going to be all of 18 years old when he performs on Friday...

    He uses multiple novation launchpads to launch a crap load of clips, and i'm really hoping that he puts together a set with a lot of songs by coachella acts, similar to how a-trak dropped so many songs from different artists on the bill last year. I have high hopes for this set, especially after his sound was so muted at the show i saw on new years

    Far from it. Here's a sample off his forthcoming EP. Kid is ridiculously talented.

    here's a video of his live performance, apparently this is his second ever live performance and this video is only from August 2011. this set at coachella could really be huge for him

    HE was pretty decent in Phoenix on Dec. 29. Not much stage presence but he's got some amazing skill.

    he is a monster with the pad, but he is an incredibly talented producer as well. some of his original productions are big

    his productions are really well polished especially for a 17yo kid

    at least there will be something a bit funky in the sahara.

    Saw him on New Years in San Diego. He absolutely killed it, and the fact that he's 17 makes it that much more amazing. Can't wait to see him this year.

    This set should be a blast, I'm really excited for it. Friday afternoon in the Sahara is going to one hell of a sexy dance party with him and Breakbot playing.

    Couple of my friends were there and caught his set, they weren't fans before they saw him but came out with some good things to say. I'm definitely down for some funky nu disco shit.

    It was so great. I love his sound, and every now and then he'd throw in a few Daft Punk samples, it was a nice touch.

    Didn't have any idea who this kid was when initially looking at the poster, and it surprised me that he got somewhat of a high billing. Pretty dope stuff though I'll check it out

    not so much because madeon produces his own original tracks as well. much better than girl talk IMO.

    It's not. Although the Pop Culture mash-up is his signature track so far. It got him on the map but his original stuff will take him places. Very excited GV booked Madeon. Here's an interesting interview.

    he was on the map well before the pop culture mashup. he won the remix comps for both pendulum and deadmau5.

    /agree with most all in this thread. This kid is freakin amazing! Like Girl Talk had a baby with Daft Punk... fantastic. One of my most anticipated as well, and one of the lineup's saving graces for the electro/disco camp.

    Between him and Jacques Lu Cont it looks like I'll get my happy daytime dance party after all. I'm not familiar with EDM too much so I initially just assumed most of the daytime Sahara acts were dubstep. Happy to find this guy.

    I'd like to know the opinion of MADEON from one of EDM regulars (Andrew, Forza, etc.) around these forums. With the Sahara lacking this year, I am looking for artists to provide me with a silver lining. There are a few I like, but I am intigued by this kid. How is he live?

    From what one can tell from the videos (like the above on from The Nest in London) he plays a great House & Indie-dance set
