I recently had a request to do a Madeon post so here it is! Madeon is a 17 year old French producer making outstanding house dance music.
His distinct sound takes inspiration from glitch electro and melodic pop music. His tracks are simple yet striking and find a great balance that many artists do not achieve.
His most recent work, 'Pop Culture' involves taking samples from over 39 songs. It's amazing to watch him work and his music is organic and pleasing. 'Pop Culture' has over three million views and has been highly successful. An avid listener made a video to match the song that is also quite good. Check that out here. Or watch the original Madeon do it live on his sampler below.
See more of his work after the jump!
His most recent remix of Deadmau5 really takes the song and makes it his own. Madeon removes a lot of the progressive and more serious sound of deadmau5 and adds dance and pop in a way I can really appreciate. I dare say I like the Madeon version of the song better.

'Yelle - Que Veux Tu' and 'Pendulum - The Island' remixes are amazing in the same way the remixed deadmau5 is.

'Shuriken' and 'For You' are his earliest public productions. These tracks reveal his upbeat organic sound Madeon is becoming quite famous for today.
