Hugo Pierre Leclercq
Stage name Madeon, this DJ is young and ambitious but has already become famous through his work. He, in fact, was nominated in 2017 for two electronic music awards, and he has only been active as a DJ since 2005. His ability to mix songs is very good and his status really increased thanks to his mixes that he placed on YouTube in 2011. Like many young artists today, he grew through the internet and has a huge loyal following to thank for his success. He has since performed at Coachella in California and the New York Electric Daisy Festival.
So much of the great electronic music that we love to dance to today comes from these great DJ’s, and they come from France. There must be something in the water there that creates unique artistic geniuses. Next time you are listening to one of their songs, remember the beautiful country that they come from.
