Celebrating 50 magic tapes with The Magician
March 24, 2015 7:47 PM   Subscribe

The Magician was initially a mysterious mixer who released Magic Tapes, mixes of disco, house and pop without tracklists, challenging listeners to compile tracklists themselves, and they did. But he stepped out from behind the curtain, remixing Lykke Li's "I Follow Rivers" and later his debut single, "I Don't Know What To Do" feat. Jeppe. In 2013, he signed with Parlophone, but has continued making his Magic Tapes. Last month, he celebrated his 50th mix with Mixmag TV and Arches.

Earmilk interviewed The Magician, aka Stephen Fasano, back in 2013 when he signed to Parlophone and released his new single, "When The Night Is Over" feat. Newtimers, noting his prior collaboration with Vito de Luca as Aeroplane, and his newer work with Yuksek as Peter & The Magician (Discogs).

If you like these, you'd do well to check out the Kraak & Smaak "keep on searching" mixes. Sooo good.

I'm going to dig into this, but I have to say that I'm shocked Parlophone is still around.

A quick review of The Magician's newer song productions: I'm not very moved by his pop hit "Sunlight" feat. Years & Years, but I love his remix of Clean Bandit's "Rather Be" feat. Jesse Glynne.
