The Magician – Sunlight feat. Years & Years (Blonde Remix)
The Magician strikes gold again with his new single ‘Sunlight’ in collaboration with Years & Years singer Olly Alexander, released 28th September via The Magician’s own label Potion.
A bonafide hands-in-the-air Summer record that will definitely not sound out of place echoing throughout the Balearic Isles, ‘Sunlight’ is built for sun-flecked terraces with it’s rolling up-tempo bassline that pushes Years & Years vocals deep into smile-firmly-on-the-face territory. Make no mistake, The Magician has dug deep for gold in aural form with‘ Sunlight’.
Long associated with energetic dance releases, The Magician has taken things into a new plane with ‘Sunlight’. Previously a member of revered Balearic disco duo, Aeroplane, The Magician struck out on his own in 2010 for a raft of collaborations with Yuksek and epic remixes such as Clean Bandit’s ‘Rather Be’ and Lykke Li’s ‘Follow Rivers’ which has since topped the 40 million views on YouTube mark: no mean feat for any DJ/producer.
Arguably best known to an army of modern-day music lovers through his monthly MagicTapes, The Magician regularly sifts through new music – exclusives from other artists plus music from fans – crafting these tracks into a new DJ mix tape which is seen as a barometer of what’s hot and what’s not, With the ability to break an upcoming artist, he’s gained a cult following of disco, pop and house fans.
To coincide with the launch of ‘Sunlight’ The Magician has also announced the first of his personally curated ‘POTION’ events, beginning in London & Paris with more European dates set to be announced.
