There were many options for shows to see on New Year’s Eve across the country – whether you were in Seattle at Resolution, in San Bernardino at Countdown, in Denver at Decadance, or anywhere else, you probably had a great time. However, the one thing that all of you at any of those places didn’t have was Madeon.

That pleasure went to the crowd at the Novo in downtown Los Angeles during the Brownies & Lemonade Lounge NYE show. Other surprise performances came from Sam Gellaitry, Falcons, and a b2b from Quix and Graves. But Madeon himself rang in the new year with a stellar performance, and possibly even some new music.

@Fabiandori on Twitter caught a video of one of the tracks during Madeon’s set that sounds distinctly Madeon-esque, though it’s not something we’ve heard before. (Video below.)

Madeon released his debut album Adventure in 2015 and, apart from “Shelter” with Porter Robinson (not counting its “evil” counterpart from earlier in 2018), he hasn’t released any new music since. Fans everywhere are hoping that 2019 is the year that changes. With new music expected from Flume and Skrillex, as well, 2019 could be a banner year in the annals of dance music.
