The idea of a radio podcast has certainly become a staple in the dance music community. Whether it is Above & Beyond’s Weekly Group Therapy Radio show or the monthly Charlotte De Witte BBC Radio 1 Residency.
Madeon joined the ranks with his first Episode of Good Faith Radio airing last week on July 10. The show will not have a concrete schedule. Instead, Madeon will premiere episodes when he deems it necessary. You can view all information about Good Faith Radio on Beats 1. Good Faith Radio is also available on Apple Music and Mixcloud.

HEY! I’m gonna have my own show : Good Faith Radio on Beats 1. I’m actually thrilled about it! It’s a space I want us to share, I want to introduce you to my favorite things and showcase some of the amazing music and art you create. The first episode airs THIS Wednesday at 11am PT. I’ll be playing my new single Dream Dream Dream. I can’t wait. ⭐️
A radio show gazing into the music and mind of Madeon is an exciting summer feature. The name of his show comes from his upcoming album, Good Faith. If you listen to the first episode you will hear how Madeon describes Good Faith as a “vibe or a mood.”
With Madeon’s Good Faith Radio his goal is to expose listeners to all of the new music that he is currently enjoying. There are more popular artists like SG Lewis, Tyler The Creator, and Chrome Sparks that Madeon found music from.
Madeon is also using his platform to promote new producers. Madeon played a fan-submitted remix of All My Friends, by Joel Demoor, and a remarkable single by 17-year-old producer Jaron. Later Madeon talked about how he had to Shazam a track called, When I’m With Him, By Empress Off when he saw her perform live.
To conclude the first episode of Good Faith Radio Madeon played a new single Dream Dream Dream. Minutes later the track was available online.

I've been living with all this music for what feels like a lifetime, i've been through so much since I first started working on all this! Along the way there were moments when I wondered if you'd hear that music at all. Now we're here! Now it's not just mine but ours – and i'm very glad.
His new single takes a more experimental route. The song appears to be heavily inspired by Chrome Sparks track In2 Your Love. The two tracks have similar structures and Madeon also chose to play In2 Your Love on Good Faith Radio.
The advantage of Good Faith Radio is that Madeon brings in multiple genres and styles. His tastes are not exclusive to electronic music. You will also find fan-submitted art, music, and projects. The goal is that it will become a space for collaboration.
