Madeon is blatantly a whizkid.
He’s only 18 but nothing short of incredible, with the stage presence of a master and a crowd that’s already begging for more of him. There’s no support, but it’s entirely worth the wait. Most people are well aware of his Pop Culture Mashup, the video that went absolutely viral on Youtube a year and a half ago, but there’s a lot more to be seen from this guy who only made his live debut in April 2011. His real name is Hugo Pierre Leclerq, he’s from Nantes, France and uses three launchpads on stage to produce electro house, backed up by a load of lighting effects and a lot of charisma. He drops his best known remixes including some Pendulum, Deadmau5, Skrillex, and ends with Pop Culture that everyone is recording on their phone whilst dancing their ass off. It would appear we’re on to a winner.
