Madeon set to debut new live show at LollapaloozaMadeon Live

Madeon, French producer lesser known as Hugo Leclercq, has been surprising fans left and right over the past few weeks, after it was announced that he would be performing at Porter Robinson‘s Second Sky Festival and Chicago’s Lollapalooza. Though the “Shelter” artist will be playing a DJ set at Second Sky, he has now shared the news that his Lollapalooza show will consist of an entirely new live set-up.

While there is no word on an impending project from Madeon, his response to a fan’s tweet about an “album live show” may suggest there is new music on the way. Now four years out from his beloved debut studio album, Adventure, one can only hope that a new music announcement from Leclercq will be coming soon. Though, with Madeon’s live appearances starting to ramp up this summer, something tells us new music may be just around the corner.

Porter Robinson has cracked yet another new chapter in an already decorated career. Following a number of successful production ventures, from Virtual Self  to Worldsthe logical next step was to add event curator to his list of credentials. Now, as Robinson’s Goldenvoice co-signed Second Sky Music Festival ramps up for its summer debut, the visionary producer is sweetening the pot with two highly anticipated performances scheduled for the June 15 event.

Porter Robinson will perform the only Worlds live set of the year at Second Sky festival, his first since retiring the live show as a result of Virtual Self’s launch in 2017. What’s more—Robinson’s upping the ante on an already stacked single-day lineup with the most recent addition to the event roster: Madeon.

The famously collaborative young visionaries will reunite in Oakland this summer, and while Madeon is only billed for a DJ set, fans are expecting his Second Sky performance to be a testing crowd for what could be a trove of new work. Moreover, the prospects of an on-stage reunion between the “Shelter” creators have fans in a frenzy, even if a co-performance is unlikely. Madeon is the latest artist to announced on the event’s lineup, joining Nina Las VegasCashmere Cat, Chrome Sparks, G Jones, and more. See the announcement below.

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory is a weekly collection of songs from DA managing editor Robyn Dexter. With a taste that can only be described as eclectic — to say nothing of a name that lends itself to punnery — DA is happy to present a selection of tracks personally curated by Dexter for your listening pleasure.

Metal and electronic music have been colliding more and more as of late. This collision takes many different forms, including artists like Matt Lange putting their own spin on the instrumentals of a song originally fueled by rock elements. Lange has taken Periphery’s “Lune” and leaned into its subdued beauty, crafting a minimalist backbone of warped bass and a dreamy guitar melody that drifts softly throughout the course of the remix. He allows Spencer Sotelo’s vocals to take center stage in his remix and has crafted a perfect atmosphere to complement Periphery’s original.

Notaker‘s off to an incredible start of 2019. His latest, “Into The Light,” pairs beautifully with its accompanying artwork, which depicts a shadowy forest highlighted by beams of sunlight. Karra‘s heavenly vocals set the scene, leading listeners into a gradual build before dropping into a booming melodic drop. Chirping birds and atmospheric layers of synths create an environment that’s both serene and powerful, as Notaker demonstrates his strong command of sound design.

Far Out’s “Worlds Apart” is what today’s future bass wishes it could be. Much like Notaker’s “Into The Light,” Far Out assemble this dreamy soundscape slowly, building gradually with lush beds of synths, piano, and strings. One could easily mistake this for an orchestral piece until just after the minute mark, when bass and drums enter to assert their dominance. “Worlds Apart” is a world within itself, full of mystery and anthemic melodies that make this a real showstopper.

And now, for a darker turn. Krayysh returns to Mad Zoo with a positively eerie remix of Shadient‘s “Leidenfrost.” He’s been making a name for himself on the Canadian label with his shadowy creations, only stepping briefly into the light for “Talk To Me.” Overall, though, his work takes a trippy, walk-in-the-woods-at-night tone, bolstered by glitchy bass and ominous melodies. His take on Shadient follows along this creepy pathway, pummeling listeners’ ears with haunting ambiance the entire way.

In a world full of endless “Shelter” remixes, it can be difficult to stand out. But REAPER is making his mark with daunting take on the iconic Madeon and Porter Robinson track by packing it full of bass and giving it an unexpected twist toward the end. The vocals have been pitched down in a way that’s a bit menacing, making the song feel more aggressive right from the beginning. With a drum & bass switch-up that takes over the last minute of the song, REAPER makes sure this remix is unforgettable.

Exclusive: Ric Wilson – ‘No Hands’ (produced by Madeon & Lido)

Exclusive: Ric Wilson – ‘No Hands’ (produced by Madeon & Lido)Ric Wilson

Rising talent Ric Wilson clearly has a bright path ahead; the young hip-hop act is new on the circuit, yet has already caught the attention of both Madeon and Lido. Both agreed to produce his latest effort, “No Hands,” and the result is an infectious piece of music. Free-flowing bass and cheery melodies make an appearance, trademarks of the producers making the background track, while Wilson’s smooth verses speak of victory and growth. It’s a pieced that oozes with positivity, and succeeds in brightening the mood wherever played — especially when the sax solo ties everything together at the end.

This rapper and activist is certainly one to keep an eye on; not only is he getting cosigns from bass greats, but he’s also started a cultural movement in his own right with his BANBA (Black Art Not Bad Art), in which he’s been known to tackle deep subjects in his art. This is the kind of talent the world needs right now, and based off glowing reviews from Pitchfork to the Chicago Tribune, Wilson’s on the path toward spreading good in a huge way.

Of the collaboration, Wilson had this to say:

“Madeon’s a good friend and this isn’t the last you’ll hear from us.. This song is for everyone that I’ve inspired and has been an inspiration to me. We young and we out here and we got this. I LOVE YALL.”
