ElectroPop crooner Sam Sparro’s latest single, ‘Happiness’ has been given a right good synthetic Disco going over from Belgium’s finest; The Magician.
I wouldn’t have immediately thought Sparro’s neo-Erasure style would have played this well with Fasano’s sound, but it really does, so well. The reMix managers to keep this funky and play up to the drama of Sparro’s vocals with a 242-esque bouncy bass and some chilling, buy funky, synths. This is probably the deepest track The Magician has put out to date and it just shows he’s not a one trick pony.
♫ Sam Sparro – Happiness (The Magician reMix)
‘Happiness’ is taken from Sam Sparro’s forthcoming new album, ‘Return To Paradise’, out 27th May.
The Magician – Magic Tape Twenty = Where would we be without our monthly infusion of Disco, House and ElectroPop from Mr. Fasano? A Lot worse off that’s where…and probably Dead. Good thing he keeps the awesome tunes coming then.
The Magician – Magic Tape Nineteen = Here it is, The Magician’s first Magic Tape of the year, and it’s an awesome way for Stephen Fasano to kick of the year with a spot on collection. Not to hard, not to soft, just right you ease you into 2012.

The Magician – Magic Tape Sixteen = Good to see the Magician is still in the game after the shit that went down in Belgium, he proves you can knock the man down but he’s gonna’ come back stronger than ever with this awesome mixtape.
More reMixes incoming of left-field ElectroPop fella Tyson’s ‘After You’re Gone’, this time in the form of a nice ‘90’s House mix with The Magician at the controls.
Relentless piano riffs are becoming The Magician’s ‘thing’ and his style lends it’s self well Tyson’s track, adding an extra layer of drama. Injecting a sense of urgency and a little tension into the song highlights Tyson’s vocal performance better than even the original.
Fear Of Tigers – The Guestlist 23/09/2011 – The Magician is in the mix this week on Fear Of Tigers’ ‘the Guestlist’, plus the winner of the ‘The adventures Of Pippi Longstrump’ remix competition is announced, here’s a hint, not my fave, but still an awesome track. Well done to the winner.
Plastic Plates reMixing The Magician? You know you’re in for a treat there! Two of the ruling acts in synthesizer Disco in a head on collision where the explosion sounds like an electro tom roll.
‘I Don’t Know What To Do’, featuring Jeppe on vocals, was already a top slice of Disco flavoured ElectroPop but Plastic Plates bring in a shuffling space Funk vibe. I would kinda’ like to see this overdubbed into the Disco scene in the 80’s Buck Rogers TV Movie with Gil Gerard & Erin Gray gettin’ down.
