Madeon - The City

I think it's finally fair to call the 18 year-old French phenom Hugo Pierre Leclercq, know more commonly as Madeon, a superstar within the EDM industry. He clearly has the ear and the creativity necessary for a long a successful career and he has also made it clear that he does more than just mash ups.

I heard Madeon's The City on Gareth Emery's 200th podcast episode and was floored by how much energy the track brought to his set. I have to give a huge shout out to Zak Waters and Cass Lowe for providing some swagged out spine tingling anthem-esk vocals on this track as well. Like any track with vocals they have a huge impression on the overall theme of the tune, and Madeon chops them up brilliantly using them as only Madeon would. Enjoy!

Not to mention the video is one of the coolest video's I've seen in a long time. Easily way cooler than Calvin Harris's video that won the VMA for best EDM Video...complete joke...anyways...Check it out!
