Last June, when The Magician and Plastic Plates announced a gig at Le Poisson Rouge, we knew it would be an epic night. Unfortunately, due to personal reasons, The Magician had to terminate his US tour before that night and go back to Europe. Though we had a fantastic time dancing to Plastic Plates, we regret to have missed the opportunity to hear The Magician spin as well. Thankfully, he has scheduled his comeback to NYC and we will be occupying LPR to check out the trend-setter DJ spin some of the best sounds out there.
Formerly half of Belgian nu-disco act Aeroplane, The Magician has been responsible for boosting the popularity of some of our favorite tunes through his Magic Tapes. His mixtape series is currently at its 25th edition and have become one of the main sources for the most up and coming songs in the nu-disco scene.
On the production side, his latest release under the moniker Peter & The Magician (in collaboration with Yuksek), called ‘Memory,’ is out now on Kitsuné and is a killer track for the dancefloor.
The Magician’s remixes are also amongst some of the most popular dance tunes recently. He has given new treatments to songs by artists like Sébastien Tellier, Sam Sparro, RAC, and Lykke Li.
Supporting The Magician that night are the excellent British DJ and producer Mighty Mouse, as well as Fixed NYC resident DJs Dave P and JDH.
