One of the French maestro’s purest magnum opus came out 5 years ago, and a lot has changed since then.
It may seem hard to face, but 2015 was 5 years ago. The dance music landscape has changed remarkably since, usually for the best, but that does not stop us from reminiscing a bit: flashback to 2015, when Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike were crowned the nº1 DJs in the world for the first time amidst huge controversies, Skrillex and Diplo were tearing up stages worldwide as their Jack U alias, and Ran-D was responsible for that year’s Defqon.1 anthem.
While all of this was happening, French prodigy Madeon had kept things somewhat under wraps, quietly releasing incredible quality tracks for 3 years. But with such a creative mind like his, an album was just a matter of “when”, and not “if”. So, in March 2015, Madeon introduced Adventure onto the world, capturing everyone’s attention with its beautifully constructed melodies, tear-jerking lyrics and dreamy atmosphere which still stands today.
An epic masterpiece, Adventure fitted all ages like a glove, and gave a whole new generation of artists something to look up to, wings to fly away and just… feel. And although the music landscape has been flipped upside down and back up a couple of times – with the passing of Avicii for example – Adventure will always be an eternal album, carved in stone forever in the blissful halls of dance music history.
