Coachella Preview - Madeon and Martin Solveig

Here's a post of two artists appearing at Coachella that I WON'T get to see. It's not because I don't want to see them, but the difficulties in planning my schedule for the three day event. The post is going to tie in both artists with one song submission. Madeon recently remixed Solveig. Let's take a listen: Good! Let's break it down.

French music is hot right now. I've always been a fan of French House music like Daft Punk and Cassius. Recently there has been a few hot rock/indie bands out of France. The one that most of us in the states know is the band Phoenix. Vocalist Thomas Mars of Phoenix is who we are hearing on "The Night Out".

Martin Solveig is an electronic DJ and producer from Paris. He's got five albums under his belt and is rated 26th best DJ in the wold according to DJ Mag. Martin was also named a producer on Madonna's latest album MDNA, but who gives a shit about that album...You probably most know of his work from his hit song "Hello" that was used in a Trident gum commercial.

Madeon
Madeon is an 18 year old electropop genius from France that has been featured several times on "15 Minutes of Fame", a segment of Pete Tong's radio show on BBC Radio 1. He usually performs in a blazer and a white v-neck t-shirt. He makes crowds of bows in girls lift their hands as if in rapture. He makes asses shake too. Is an 18 year old that good?
39 samples and nearly 10.5 million views makes Madeon legit, for sure. Dying to know all the samples played? I'm here to serve...
