While his departure last summer from disco darlings Aeroplane saddened many fans, Stephen Fasano apparently still had a few tricks up his sleeve. Musically reincarnated as The Magician, Fasano has been continuing to churn out blissed-out, Italo-flavored free monthly mixes (or “Magic Tapes”) via Soundcloud – a tradition first started with Aeroplane – as well as covertly working on remixes for the likes of The Aikiu, Beni, and Lykke Li.
Although the original material he’s been working on with Yuksek has yet to be released, The Magician is set to put several North American dancefloors under his spell this January. Expect some sleight of hand on the turntables to make your troubles disappear amidst all the smoke and mirrors.
And as a special treat, he’s conjured up a tongue-in-cheek, oh-so-‘80s-inspired tour promo, set to the tune of his remix for The Aikiu’s “The Red Kiss.” Check out the tour dates below.
