You might remember that oki-ni had a mix from Andrew Weatherall a couple of weeks back. This time, the series moves on to The Magician. I’ve no idea who he is. Apparently, “Stephen Fasano, aka The Magician, shocked the electronic music scene last year when, on the back of Aeroplane’s successful US tour and debut LP, he announced that he was going solo. Returning as The Magician, a mysterious persona with a mix of blissed-out disco, electronic pop, and 80s-inspired sounds at his disposal, he has been steadily touring, releasing his own ‘Magic Tapes’ mixes and remixing artists such as Lykke Li and The Aikiu.” I was unaware and so unshocked. I am so not part of the electronic music scene.

All I know is that any mix which includes It’s Immaterial’s classic Driving Away From Home and Sheer Taft’s Cascde must be good. Mustn’t it?
