If you have been following Madeon closely, you might know that he has been taking a break from touring so he can focus his time and energy on writing a new album. However, he decided to release a song that he wrote two years ago, "Cut The Kid." Not only that, but it is a free download...if you can figure out the code!

"I don't think I've ever felt as inspired or excited to be a musician before."

It gives me chills to think about how talented Madeon is only being 19 years old, which means he wrote this song at the young age of 17. Damn! I really look up to artists who are truly invested in the music they produce. Once you play "Cut The Kid" you will realize that Madeon has stayed true to his form over the years. I hear a lot of similarity between "Cut The Kid" and some of his more recent songs like "Technicolor" and "The City." I love when artists like this young Frenchman have their own style which can be heard throughout all of their songs. That way, you are never unsure who the song is by. "Cut The Kid" is sure to get you to your feet and grooving in no time. Madeon - Cut The Kid Personal Experience I had the privilege of seeing Madeon three different times last year. I would have to say the most notable time was at Electric Zoo in New York. Being in a completely foreign place to me, seeing one of my favorite artists put a lasting impression on me.Madeon-ezoo I remember someone leaning over to me while I was dancing and asking me, "Who is this kid playing on stage?" I immediately replied, "Its Madeon, he's like 17 or something." I realized I was wrong right after I said it, but I was so focused on the music that I was a little preoccupied. I kept my hands in the air for almost his whole set. I seriously cannot wait til Madeon releases his new album and goes on tour again. I would recommend anyone to go see this talented artist.
