The hypnotic legend of Madeon’s ascent to stardom at age 16 is enough to attract me to his work, but when he continues to churn out emotive and innovative nu-disco (with a flair of electro) tracks time after time, you know he’s the real deal. The difficulty in creating such popular tracks is the rise of haters. If a release doesn’t live up to the magnitude of the prior release, well then the artist is either going “mainstream”, or “lost their touch”, or maybe even is a “one hit wonder”. Thankfully we can dispel those convictions in the case of Madeon. Trying to follow up with something as good as “Icarus” is a daunting task, but Madeon brought the effin’ noise. Couldn’t be more pleased with his newest installment dropping on July 22. Cheers.
Bonus: Stellar deep house track from Alfred Taylor…
