Zane Lowe premiered this track on his BBC Radio 1 show, declaring it the hottest record in the world. I’m going to have to agree with this. This song is pure gold. Produced by the electro wunderkid Madeon, Two Door Cinema Club have found the perfect blend of Indie-pop/rock, with some subdued electronic influences from Madeon. The production of this track is nearly flawless from start to finish. The lead vocals from Alex are perfect, as they carry the song with some subtle inflections in his voice that make all the difference in the world. Meanwhile the rest of the band is perfectly on point, as they fill out the background with some infectious melodies and intricate fills. This is Two Door at the top of their game, and with an EP coming out September 30th, this is exactly what they needed to build up some excitement.

After giving the fans a very brief preview a little while back, Madeon left us chomping at the bit to hear the rest what is now being called ‘Technicolor’. This is a full fledged melodic electro piece that’s swarming with a wide range of arpeggios, and sprightly synths that move up and down with the overall tempo of the song. The track moves in and out of soft melodic pieces interrupted by big, full sounding dance sections. It’s an incredible look into what the 19 year old wonderkid is capable of, and he seems to have endless tricks up his sleeve. Check it out below and head over to Madeon’s official site to purchase the full track.

The M Machine doesn’t come out with quantity, but the quality is there 100% of the time. Madeon’s widely popular ‘The City’ is flipped this disco sounding dance track into a big room house track with pulsing synths, and a pounding bass. The original had a lighter, my fluent feel to it. The M Machine chopped up a lot of the vocal samples, threw in some euphoric builds followed by the inevitable drop. Two very different styles between Madeon and The M Machine created two very different sounding tracks. But they both seem to work perfectly in their own right.

Madeon, the French wonderkid, is nothing short of spectacular. He’s been on fire lately with his recent releases, so it should come as no surprise that ‘The City’ is on route to be another huge hit. His upbeat, Nu-Disco style is becoming more and more popular amongst the dance-crazed fans, and I don’t blame them. It’s refreshingly fun, non-repetitive, and impossible not to dance to. This isn’t quite as Housey as his last single ‘Finale,’ but rather it features a lot more poppy indie vocals that separate this from a lot of his previous work.

As of now, we only have the radio rip, but more details to come as we get them regarding the full release.

The wonderkid does it again. 18 year old Madeon is on a fast track to the top, and his newest release is helping to further solidify his place amongst the best in the game. Veering from his usual disco-driven French house formula, ‘Finale’ is a little more down-tempo, but still packs a huge punch. The intricate melody and powerful vocals make this track a possible contender for the biggest release from Madeon thus far. Which says a lot considering what he’s put out this past year. It’s difficult to verbally describe the musical journey that is ‘Finale.’ Just give it a listen and enjoy.

Madeon, the 18 year old French prodigy, first made a splash in the EDM scene with his track ‘Pop Culture’: a mix of 39 tracks all mashed together inside of a 3 minute window. He recorded this session, put it on Youtube, and a new EDM star was born. Now, millions of views, a ton of live shows, and a handful of new tracks later, he’s hitting us with another track that fits a similar formula. He stopped by Annie Mac’s weekly Radio One show and chose 93 songs of all genres and artists, and created a 5 minute minimix masterpiece. This is impressive, to say the least. There’s no denying Madeon is one of the youngest, most talented DJ’s out there. With his young career just bursting wide open, the possibilities are endless. His electro-disco style is a change of pace from a lot of those other artists out there, and his creativity is hard to match by anyone. As long as he keeps coming up with stuff like this, he’ll be sure to shake up a few things in the EDM world.

The first look at Xaphoon Jones’s upcoming mixtape, XJV3, is a light, upbeat mashup mixing together St. Lucia’s ‘We Got It Wrong,’ with Madeon’s ‘Que Veux Tu.’ It’s definitely an interesting mix of tracks, but it works perfectly. One part indie dream-pop, one part funky electro, this unlikely pairing has created a perfect nice-weather feel, all thanks to production mastermind Xaphoon Jones.

Martin Solveig’s newest single ‘The Night Out’ has gotten a lot of remix time from artists like A-Trak, Madeon, and now TheFatRat. TheFatRat is pretty new to the scene, but has a handful of remixes that are all near the top of my list of dance tracks. His nu-disco style, and catchy melodies seem to hit perfectly with just about every remix he drops. This time around he went a little harder on the electro and backed off the disco a bit. But don’t get me wrong, this track is funky as hell, but it’s also got a bassline dirty enough to give Zedd a run for his money.

Check this remix out and keep you’re eyes peeled for TheFatRat’s name to be popping up more and more, because he’s yet to miss a beat.
