Hugo Pierre Leclercq (born 30 May 1994), known by his stage name Madeon, is a French house/electro house/nu-disco/pop producer from France. He gained popularity by means of his video “Pop Culture”, which was published to YouTube and subsequently received millions of hits in its first few days of broadcast on the Internet. His first EP The City was released in 2012.
Leclercq started composing music at the age of 11, producing trance under the name of “DJ Deamon” and hands-up under the name of “Wayne Mont” until 2010 when he began producing house music under his current name, Madeon, which is an anagram of his previous nickname. He won a remix competition for “The Island” by Pendulum the same year.
