[DJ Huygens] Madeon vs YG artists

DJ Huygens is a 17-year-old mashupper/producer in the french-Kpop scene. Winner of the SNSD The Boys remix contest, Huygens rivals DJ Masa as the next kpop mashup artist to follow.

We thought it was worth sharing one of his latest mashups. Madeon’s Icarus makes a great instrumental, and Huygens takes full advantage of pitch bending to fit accapellas into the song’s structure. As the video title indicates, the track takes accapellas from: 2ne1, Big Bang & Se7en.

We’re currently thinking of making an extended version of Huygens’ mashup to drop in your sets, but given atmospheric intro of the original, this may be unneeded. Let us know in the comments.
