Madeon Adventure Tour: Behind-The-Scenes
Young, French producer Madeon has embarked on his first headlining North American tour to promote his debut album Adventure. With support from San Francisco-based The M Machine, the tour has already made stops along the West Coast including two sets at Coachella but will cover most of the East Coast before wrapping up in Canada in the next couple of weeks.
Madeon is an artist whose popularity is partially owed to live recording sessions that he has posted to YouTube. One of Madeon’s more well known videos, Pop Culture live mashup, has accumulated over 29 million views since its debut in July 2011. This live tour is a much more interactive setup, incorporating launchpad controllers and a live keyboard rather than the typical turntable setup. To promote the album further, Madeon’s website has also launched the Adventure Machine, an amazing remix tool, allowing users to make their mixes using samples from the Adventure album. Users can also use a launchpad with the WebMIDI API.
