Madeon's Minimix for Annie Mac on BBC 1

The teenage French producer Madeon never ceases to amaze me with his prodigious production skills. He first blew me out of the park with this live mashup on a Novation Launchpad, and has since released several solid diamonds in his growing catalog of songs and remixes. Now he drops this bomb on us all: Ninety-three songs in five minutes for Annie Mac's electronic music show on BBC Radio 1.

"Most of these tracks are sampled in really small ways, sometime under a second," Madeon writes on his Soundcloud page. "The purpose wasn't to reference all these songs clearly but to use samples as an instrument."

Madeon represents a first generation of dance music producers who were exposed to modern audio production software as young children and are now creating impressive house music.  In this interview with Pete Tong from December, Madeon admits he started using music production software when he was 11 years old.
