2018 has been off to a dramatic start with a cheating scandal from The Chainsmokers and now rising producer k?d gets his name added to the drama pot after dropping his first single of the year called “Glass.” Almost instantly, comments began flooding all social media platforms stating an apparent copy of Madeon’s “Technicolor,” it seems he had enough of the accusations and a few days later he took the song down completely.
Whether the similarity was there or not which can be argued easily for either side the damage done on k?d’s confidence as a producer is apparent since he is influenced heavily by Porter Robinson and Madeon. This week, k?d shared a screenshot of a DM he received from Madeon in which the French producer expressed sympathy for the comments he was receiving and offered words of encouragement.
“Hey! I saw you deleted your song ‘Glass,’ I hope it’s not because of the comments I’ve seen people make regarding Technicolor […] I don’t think the similarity is that striking.”
Well done, Madeon. Shoutout to bigger artists that still remain good human beings after money and fame.
