At only 16 years old, nu disco/electro pop prodigy Madeon hit the scene last year with both wonderful originals and stunning remixes across the board. His greatest success may be found in his remix of Pendulum’s smash single The Island, a track that deservingly won an entire remix contest.
While we’ve seen the nu disco scene surge in the past year with names like Grum and Siriusmo, I honestly feel like nobody is doing it quite like Madeon has been. In this particular remix of The Island, we see innovation not only in taking such an electro-based track and giving it a perfectly fitting festival of 80s based pop sounds, but also in seamlessly mending dubstep into all of the aforementioned. Although retro sounding, I can guarantee that this one absolutely pops on a nice pair of speakers, and will drive a party nuts!
I can’t wait to see what Madeon brings to the table in 2011. He’s of an elite group of young artists that I really don’t plan on taking my eyes off of this year!
