Playing huge European music festivals, dropping viral hits, and making buzzworthy Soundcloud mixtapes are just some of the ways The Magician dazzles electronic fans around the globe.
Before rising to mainstream popularity under his majestic moniker, Belgian DJ Stephen Fasano made pulsating beats in Aeroplane, a Balearic disco duo until 2007. Three years later, the accomplished mixer embarked on his solo career that has since earned him a record deal with Sony, and several platinum tracks.
You’ve probably heard his electric remix of Lykke Li’s 2012 song “I Follow Rivers,” which garnered over one hundred sixty million streams. Another one of our favorites? His remix of the immensely popular “Rather Be” by Clean Bandit, which features Jess Glynne. Impressively, The Magician also hosted his own stage at the Tomorrowland festival last year.
We recently caught up with the skilled producer while he was traveling across the west coast during his US tour. From doodling aliens in Seattle to chowing down on avocado toast in LA, check out the documentation from his travels, then be sure to check out his brand new single, “Ready to Love”!
