Madeon, the impressive young DJ has become a mainstay in the elctro-house world. He has come a long way since his single, Pop Culture. Normally, we see Madeon tearing up main stages at massive festivals, but I guess that doesn’t mean he is too good for blessing New York’s nightlife at Webster Hall. He brought big festival sound and feel to the “intimate” setting of Webster Hall *cough*
The atmosphere in Webster Hall was just out of control. The place was fully packed out and according to Alex English’s Tweets #soldout. The crowd was an eclectic mix of fans: some who were as young as the DJ and some who seemed like they were there for the free bottle (as is tradition) and some who just landed from England that afternoon and needed to learn what it means to sleep with no shoes on in ‘Merica. Don’t worry I taught him.
The lighting was typical for Webster Hall, a lot of blue lasers (providing further frustration for those who would rather take pictures than dance), bliding the audience when the drops kicked in. Madeon, like we mention is normally the mainstage at massives, brought the volume of a festival to Webster Hall. Madeon’s version of “Raise Your Weapon”, The City and Icarus were explosive.
When I wasn’t running back and forth from hanging out and chatting it up with all the Webster Hall regulars, I had a chance to check out the basement Studio. I loved the DJ repeatedly screaming for us to imitate South Beach (only a few more months!).
