At a humble 20 years of age, Madeon has managed to take the music scene by storm. Most people associate the French producer with his spirited, disco-electro dance sound. However, his indie rock and pop-influenced tracks have also helped him become one of the most respected individuals in the industry. He has worked with the likes of Lady Gaga, Coldplay and Dan Smith (Bastille), amongst many others, and has paved his own path to success, earning the title of “boy wonder of dance music.”
Madeon initially garnered worldwide acclaim by means of his “Pop Culture” mash-up and continued to impress with his skillful productions like “Technicolor,” and “The City.” Currently, he’s riding high on the success of his debut album, Adventure. It features the hit singles, “Pay No Mind (featuring Passion Pit),” “You’re On (featuring Kyan)” and his vocal debut, “Home.”
Bringing his creative vision full circle, Madeon put together the Adventure Live Tour – featuring 23 North American cities, including both weekends of Coachella. This past Friday, the show touched down in Toronto for a sold out stop at The Danforth Music Hall. While there, Madeon performed live edits of his new album in a setting that can be best described as magical – complete with beautiful production and surreal visuals. Flashing lights amongst the mega diamond structure formed picturesque frames with every beat. Hugo’s energy spread through every person on the dance floor, as they witnessed plenty of masterful playing, interaction and improvisation of the music.
Before bringing Toronto on his musical adventure however, we caught up with Madeon for a quick chat. During our interview, the producer discussed creating the Adventure Tour, his first experience singing live, what he’d like to teach himself next and much more.
