About The Magician
The Magician basking in the "Sunlight"
Don't tell Stephen Fasano there's no room in life for a little magic – especially from a guy whose alter ego is called The Magician.
Fasano continues to be known for his laid-back house beats, including 2014's monster hit "Sunlight."
Backed by the success of the aforementioned track, Fasano embarked on a rare U.S. tour in the fall of 2014 that included stops at Brooklyn's Output, Miami's Grand Central, and Chicago's The Mid, all coinciding with the relase of "Sunlight." He told DJTimes he was influenced by a lot of progressive rock songs from the late 1960s and early 70s when working on the song. He specifically cited the use of instruments like the mellotron and the guitar, so he played and recorded different chord progression on both to get a cut-up sampled vibe.
"Sunlight" was released in the United Kingdom on September 28, and Fasano performed the track as The Magician along with Years & Years at the 2014 MTV Europe Music Awards in Glasgow, Scotland as part of the Digital Show.
Now, in 2015, Fasano has a number of big events coming up. He – or rather, The Magician – will play the Winter Potion Tour in Barcelona on March 20. A little more than a week later he'll play the Ultra Music Festival in Miami, and in May he'll perform at Life Festival 2015 at Belvedere House & Gardens in Ireland. The Magician is also scheduled to be part of Hideout 2015 in Croatia on June 28th, and make an appearance at Creamfield 2015 in Creamfields UK in August.
About The Magician, Stephen Fasano
He goes by multiple names, but many simply call him The Magician. His real name, however, is Stephen Fasano, and he has become one of the most talented DJ/Producers on the planet after splitting from duo Aeroplane.
Some like to joke that the Magician materialized in a cloud of crystals and smoke, that he's 'a former airline pilot who crashed an afterparty,' or simply appeared out of thin air as a tangible element between space and time.
Realistically, Fasano's star began to rise after he released his debut single "I Don't Know What To Do" in 2011. He then joined forces with Peter (aka Yuksek) for three different EPs ("Twist," "Memory" and "On My Brain") and became known for his wicked remixes. (You might remember when he tried his hand at Lykke Li's "I Follow Rivers," which had over 36 million views on YouTube.
Something else that caught the attention of The Magician's new fans? His Magic Tapes on Soundcloud dropped one after another, even as he worked his way through what seemed to be a never-ending tour schedule. And wherever he showed up, people followed.
Fasano's "When The Night Is Over" EP included three big dancefloor tracks – "Deep Volcano," "Enchanted Land" and the title track. The latter is the one you want to spin to get the party started, and it's supported by DJs Busy P, Todd Edwards, Riva Starr, Grum, Digitalism, J Paul Getto, Biecep, Sound of Stero, DJ T, DJ EZ, Rustem, Quentin Harris, Perseus, Alex Metric and more.
