Madeon, who was recently DJ Mag North America's cover star, has teased music from the forthcoming 'Good Faith' album.
It was announced last month that the French producer's new LP would arrive on 15th November, some four years after his debut, 'Adventure'. The news was unveiled via a slick short video containing sounds from the record alongside behind the scenes footage.
Medeon has announced the release date for his second album, 'Good Faith'.
The producer's new LP will arrive on 15th November, some four years after his debut, 'Adventure'. The news was unveiled via a slick short video containing sounds from the record alongside behind the scenes footage.
Promoter GoldenVoice has confirmed the full lineups for its upcoming series of electronic music-focused events in Los Angeles, with the likes of Solomun and Madeon leading the announcement.
Solomun is set to play his only LA performance of 2019 at the Shrine LA Outdoors venue on Saturday, November 2nd, while Madeon will play two shows at Shrine Expo Hall on Friday, November 15th and Saturday, November 16th. The dates make up part of his Good Life world tour and follow his live performance at Lollapalooza festival over the summer.
As the roll-out for Madeon's new album, 'Good Faith', continues, he's now dropped a new track, titled 'Be Fine'.
It's the third track to be unveiled from the producer's second album, following on from 'All My Friends' and 'Dream Dream Dream'. 'Be Fine' features Madeon's vocals alongside a backing choir.
Last weekend saw Porter Robinson host the debut edition of his Second Sky Festival, taking place across two days at the Middle Harbor Shoreline Park in Oakland, California.
Naturally, Porter Robinson headlined proceedings playing two sets — one under his Virtual Self alias with which he opened the festival. Also featured on the line-up were Skrillex (who was billed as a special guest on the second day after G Jones couldn't make the slot he filled the previous day), Madeon, Nina Las Vegas and Chrome Sparks.
At age 26, Porter Robinson already stands as one of America’s greatest, most ambitious producers of his generation. From his humble beginnings as a self-taught bedroom producer, Robinson has risen to a level of creativity and artistry all his own, continuously challenging the electronic status quo and transforming his sound over and over again.

Released in 2012, ‘Language’ is the first indication of Robinson’s transition from his in-your-face complextro and dubstep style toward a more melodic-based sound. The dreamlike track follows a pop-oriented structure that was largely missing in Robinson’s discography. The result is a slice of cinematic alternative electronic pop that felt new and exciting and completely unexpected from Robinson. ‘Language’ would go on to top the overall Beatport and iTunes Dance charts, spearheading Robinson’s new creative direction.
It’s difficult to fully reflect on the influence of ‘Worlds’, Robinson’s 2014 debut album, because we’re still reeling from its impact. A response to the tired, formulaic commercial EDM dominating the global scene, ‘Worlds’ was Robinson’s attempt to change the course of an entire genre and scene. He succeeded.

Madeon began the week of 13th November by offering an update on his career. After releasing just one new single over 2016 and 2017, the French upstart promises he’s been busy working on the "next era" of the Madeon project.
The emotive EDM songwriter, real-name Hugo Pierre Leclercq, stated via social media: “I've been working non-stop on my next era for a while now.
"Sincerely, I feel very privileged to have people who care about what I do. You are allowing me to have high standards, thanks for your patience.”
Porter Robinson treated punters at Something Wonderful Festival to a live edit of his 'Shelter' collaboration with Madeon on Saturday (22nd April).
The original track was such a success the two artists launched a whole Shelter Live Tour off the back of it, and fans have even gone to the lengths of making an entire film based on the shows.
Check out fan footage of the new edit below.
In under 10 minutes of speaking to Hugo Leclercq, the man behind the construction known as Madeon, it is clear the musical phenom is, inarguably, one of the most intelligent people you have ever come across. This is notwithstanding his age, which is a mere 20 years—old by music industry standards according to Madeon, middle aged, in fact—he is smart by all accounts. He confounded the intelligence tests administered at school. His vice of choice is sleep deprivation.
