French electro-house DJ Madeon (real name Hugo Leclercq) is set to release his debut album Adventure at the end of March. In anticipation for the release, today’s Musical Discovery post is a review of Cut the Kid – which I never reviewed when it was originally released.
In the video’s description on YouTube, Leclercq describes the song as “a happy groovy production jam”. With bursts of vibrant funk and creative melodies, Madeon’s description of this track is spot on.
Throughout the song, Madeon includes funky guitar riffs, off-beat synth distortions, and dramatic build-ups to a catchy chorus. Even the song’s beginning has a colourful, galactic feel to it.
Upon listening to the track for the first time, I was put off by the high-pitched synth notes in the song’s chorus, but after listening to the song again, it’s grown on me. I’ve since realised that the unique synth melody is what makes this release to his other tracks.
Madeon has already released this song for a free download, but the track is also available to purchase as part of the deluxe edition of Adventure.
