Madeon Named to “21 Under 21” By Billboard

madeon 4At a mere 20 years old, French electro DJ Madeon has achieved more notoriety than many artists could hope to attain in a lifetime. This is part of the reason why Billboard has named him to their much-discussed 21 under 21 in the music industry list.

Here’s why Billboard believes Madeon is one of the most important young people in music:

Why He’s Hot: After catapulting onto the dance scene in 2011 with his viral “Pop Culture” video and standout remix of Deadmau5‘s “Raise Your Weapon,” Madeon (real name Hugo Pierre Leclercq) has proven worthy of his hype. While the young Frenchman has only released a handful of singles since 2012’s excellent The CityEP, his talents have been making waves in different ways. After supporting Lady Gaga on her Born This Way Ball tour, Madeon co-produced three tracks (“Venus,” “Mary Jane Holland” and “Gypsy”) for her latest album Artpop, while also finding time to contribute to Coldplay‘s Ghost Stories. His much-anticipated debut album is reportedly set for release later this year, and every indication points to it being well worth the wait.”
