Madera Releases Mash-up "I Need Symphonica"!

Madera has done it again. Although, I’m slightly biased because I’m one of his biggest fans, he has just released an insane mash-up of two huge hits, Ellie Goulding’s “I Need Your Love” and Nicky Romero’s “Symphonica. Appropriately, the name of the newly released is “I Need Symphonica”. This new song should definitely be added to your pre-game playlist A.S.A.P. It’s already on mine.
