I absolutely love pop culture and the not so popular culture. My fascination with pop culture is one of the reasons why I started this blog. I didn’t want to just be confined to the position of a spectator, yet an avid and active member of the cultural exchange. There is so much culture out there from around the world. My position in life is to be an active member of society and share my opinions on the culture. Even if I don’t have an opinion (which is quite rare,) I still have to share what I find and let you guys, my audience, formulate an opinion.
Recently I’ve gotten off into a lot of music from the UK, specifically a lot of French DJ’s and producers. For years I’ve been listening to a lot of awesome electronic/dance artists, but I had no idea they were from France. I suppose the location never mattered to me, I was only concerned with the infectious music teasing my ears. Good music, is good music. The location or the characteristics of the artist doesn’t always matter to me, it’s about the quality of the sound. My love for good music is probably why I discovered Madeon and didn’t realize he was yet another French producer. The location doesn’t necessarily matter, but seriously though, what is up with France pumping out so much good electronica/dance music?!
Madeon is yet another pop/electronic producer from France, and get this, he is only 17! I first heard of him about a week ago when I was jamming to the dance channel and his remix of Deadmau5′s “Raise Your Weapon” came on. I’m a huge fan of Deamau5 and the remix by Madeon had caught my ears. It was a nice spin on the original, it gave the song a little more of an electro pop sound.
Madeon has some great remixes, including his remix of Yelle’s “Que Veux Tu.” Yet one of his coolest mixes is a live mash up called “Pop Culture.” It’s a mash up of all his favorite pop culture songs and all the song he uses are some of the ones I love listening to. He has a great collection of songs ranging from Daft Punk to Michael Jackson, from The Who to Michael Jackson, Chromeo to Madonna, and so many other great artists.
Madeon is only 17 years old, but he is becoming quite the remix sensation. Check out his Pop Culture mash up and his remix of Deadmau5′s “Raise Your Weapon.”
