The Magician is the alias of talented DJ/Producer, Stephen Fasano. One night not so long ago, he appeared from a place between space and time. Apparently he stepped into this world, materializing in a cloud of crystal stars and soft pink smoke. Some claim he’s a former airline pilot who crashed an afterparty – some say it’s all just an illusion, a well performed hoax.
Previously a member of revered Balearic disco duo, Aeroplane, he disembarked that flight and boarded his own magical carpet ride in 2010. Following a string of releases on the French tastemaker label Kitsune, Stephen finally struck gold with his re-work of Lykke Li’s “I Follow Rivers” in 2011 and Clean Bandit’s “ Rather Be” in 2014. The Magician hit new heights with his massive summer 2014 smash “Sunlight” featuring the vocals of Olly Alexander from Years & Years.
During this whole time he has also been capturing the imaginations of music fans with his Magic Tapes on Soundcloud. Every month he sifts through new music – exclusives from other artists plus music from fans – crafting these tracks into new DJ mix tapes. He has now broke the 50 mark whilst along the way gaining a cult following of disco, pop and house fans. Everywhere The Magician DJs people come under his spell.
