The DJ: Madeon
Props: In true 21st century fashion, French house impresario Hugo Pierre Leclercq found himself an overnight sensation after posting a video called “Pop Culture” to Youtube in 2011, showing his performance of a live, 39-track mash-up. He debuted his first single “Icarus” on Pete Tong’s radio show on BBC Radio 1 and was the first DJ to even spin at the New York Stock Exchange, which is a massive feat for young dude. In honor of the struggle that young artists thrive on, here’s Madeon’s remix of Pendulum’s “The Island”, which earned him a competition victory.
