After making a name for himself as one of the biggest “up and coming” DJ’s, Madeon is all set to take the world by storm. After a string of solid singles, remixes, and even song writing for Lady Gaga, the twenty year old is finally ready to drop his debut album. Pay No Mind serves as the lead single to the upcoming Adventure, and could very well be the EDM-pop crossover single that gives Madeon his big breakout moment.
Pay No Mind features indie band Passion Pit, and the combination is absolute gold. Madeon’s vibrant production and colorful beats are complemented brilliantly by Michael Angelikos’s quirky vocal delivery. The band also throws in some added instrumentation, giving the song a more upbeat rhythm and a funky baseline. The song really explodes with good vibes on the chorus, which will have you reaching for the repeat button.
The two artists complement each other perfectly, creating a piece of electro-pop heaven. The combination of Passion Pit and Madeon could easily dethrone the previous tag-team of Carly Rae Jepsen and Owl City for “best electro pop feel good party starter.” However, I get the feeling that even they wouldn’t have a problem jamming out to Pay No Mind. This is a monster hit in the making.
Final Score: 4/5
