    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.

    If he plays a similar set, perfects it, and has some visual elements this will be really fun

    in case people here dont know how ableton works, let me give you a quick rundown of what's happening in this video. the launchpad to his right (our left) always has one solid green button lit while another button right below remains blinking. that's called a clip launch which is done via a simple function in ableton that allows the user to automatically launch the next clip after a certain number of bars play of the previous clip. so basically madeon is clip launching his whole set, which is basically one step removed from prerecording his entire set and pressing play. here, all he has to do is remember to launch the next column of clips once the previous column of clips reach the bottom (presumably because he didn't set up the action to follow a snake pattern).

    make of this information what you will. but let's not get too ahead of ourselves in thinking that he is re-inventing the wheel. my guess is he's triggering samples on the other launchpad.

    Remembering to launch clips is hard. Props to the kid if he gets smashed before his set and performs, that ups the difficulty level a bit.

    Ok, so I really have no opinion on the kid. The song is ok I guess, it'll get people moving. My question is are other DJ's that are working with Abelton or similar tools live doing something different than what this kid is doing or are they all pretty much pre-recorded sets as well?

    A lot of your "live" sets have tons of prerecorded samples programmed into whatever it is that they are using. That doesn't make them fully pre-recorded sets. What Madeon does actually requires SOME skill as opposed to, say, Steve Angello did on his infamous youtube video where he just did absolutely nothing to mix or loop samples in.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
