Madeon & SEGA collaborating on a “new Sonic game trailer”


We have information that a new trailer is in the works and that licensed music will be used from Madeon, whether it’s for the new Sonic game constantly teased or something related to Sonic Boom Fire & Ice. Either way, the official Twitter for popular French musician Madeon and Sonic the Hedgehog accounts have talked about using Madeon’s music in a Sonic trailer. The exact context though is ambiguous, such as which song from Madeon or for what game.

Madeon (real name Hugo Pierre Lelercq) is a songwriter, record producer, musician, and DJ from France. He gained sudden popularity when producing the video “Pop Culture”, a mash-up of 40 different songs played in real time, which has gained millions of views on YouTube in a matter of days. Since then he’s gone on to record his own music, including his debut studio album Adventure that contains songs like The City and Finale.
This wouldn’t be the first time a Sonic trailer used licensed music for a trailer. For example, the first trailer for Sonic Boom Rise of Lyric used the song “Skrillex -Bangarang” during the trailer. This also coincides with the official Sonic Tumblr account teasing something with Madeon via it’s tags and string of numbers. But it seems like if things go according to plan,  we’ll be seeing a new trailer for something soon in the future.

    It’s great to see that Sega are making a trailer but I’d rather they’d just use their own music. Sonic has so many great tracks, be them vocal or not. I’m not a particularly big fan of Madeons music or that genre, but there are a lot of people who are.

    What do you think it would really take for our boy sonic to get back on track again if sonic 06 wasn’t the mess it was no bugs would peeps be mad or they more mad about the hedgehog and princess thing my question I guess is are sonic fans like Star Wars fans in that we will complain no Matter what is released if sonics 90s days are the first 3 movies surely his 2000 games are the prequels so were just waiting on jj to reboot us right?

    Hope it’s just for the trailer, because this “music” “genre” is really awful IMO. I thought it couldn’t get any worse after dubstep, but I guess I was wrong lol. Sega’s known for using latest “trendy” music for their trailers lately, like they used dubstep for some Sonic trailers before (back when it was the hot meme), so I’m just hoping it’s the same here and the actual game will have good music, rather than hipster “music”
    Just my opinion anyway.
