Madeon’s Breakout “Pop Culture” Mashup Just Turned 10 [LISTEN AGAIN]

Madeon’s breakout track “Pop Culture” is still a bop — even a decade later!

The producer’s famed mega-mashup originally released on July 11, 2011 and launched his career in unprecedented fashion. “Pop Culture” was recorded when Madeon was just 17 years old, and he went from bedroom producer to one of the most recognizable names in dance music overnight.

Integrating classic dance cuts from Daft Punk, deadmau5, Justice and Nero in with pop hits from Britney Spears, Lady Gaga, Madonna and Ke$ha, “Pop Culture” sampled 39 tracks using FL Studio & Ableton Live, played on a Novation Launchpad & Novation Zero SL MKII.

The track chopped bits and pieces of music from Ellie Goulding, Gorillaz, Michael Jackson, Linkin Park, The Killers, Kylie Minogue and more into one seamless performance, demonstrating Madeon’s sheer brilliance as a young artist and future tastemaker.

At the time of the mashup’s release, Madeon shared, “This is a little idea i’ve been playing around with to implement in my set, hope you like it.”
