The Magician is the alias of talented DJ/Producer, Stephen Fasano.
One night not so long ago, he appeared from a place between space and time. Apparently he stepped into this world, materializing in a cloud of crystal stars and soft pink smoke. Some claim he’s a former airline pilot who crashed an after party – some say it’s all just an illusion, a well performed hoax.
Founder of revered Balearic disco duo Aeroplane in 2007, he disembarked that flight and boarded his own magical carpet ride in 2010.
Following a string of releases on the French tastemaker label Kitsune, Stephen finally struck platinum with his version of Lykke Li’s “I Follow Rivers” in 2011 (which has had over 100 million views on YouTube and topped the charts across Europe).

After signing to Parlophone/Warner Records and joining the Machine Management roster of artists in 2014, The Magician hit new heights with his massive summer smash “Sunlight” featuring the vocals of Olly Alexander from Years & Years.

With Top 10 “hit” status achieved in the UK, Europe and Australia, The Magician spent 2015/16 cultivating his own live events and record label aptly named ‘POTION’. New singles “Together” and “Shy” quickly followed, the latter now certified gold with over 50 million streams.

2017 then saw The Magician sign a new major record deal with Sony, and release a series of memorable collaborations.

This year The Magician has decided to mix it up, with “Las Vegas’, “Love Break” and upcoming track “Build A Fire” forming a trio of more mid-tempo/urban pop-leaning productions. Who knows what the rest of the year will bring…

During this whole time he has also been capturing the imaginations of music fans with his “Magic Tapes” series on SoundCloud. Every month he sifts through new music - exclusives from other artists plus music from fans - crafting these tracks into new DJ mix tapes. He has now broken the 80th mark, whilst along the way gaining a cult following of House, Disco, R'n'B/Soul and Pop fans.
Everywhere The Magician DJs, people fall under his spell.
