Fresh off its premiere on The Magician’s Magic Tape mix series, Belgian duo Arches has released their new single “Want You” for FREE download!
Following the single “There’s A Place” and their recent remix for Kiesza’s “Giant In My Heart”, the boys wanted to give back to their fans a club tool inspired by their first set of shows across Europe. The Magician debuted “Want You” in his latest Magic Tape and again on his guest mix for BBC Radio 1 this past weekend.
It’s bass-laden piano driven melodies provide the perfect bed for the plaintive vocal. The breakdown brings a truly epic moment, bringing together darker synths and bass notes before the percussion welcomes back the compulsive groove.
After fantastic remixes of Ellie Goulding, Little Dragon & Beaumont, Clancy is really starting to hit his stride. Clancy is on point once again with his remix game, this time remixing the new Magician track “When The Night Is Over”. Clancy adds his signature deep components, extracting & layering just the right amount of vocals & dropping a monstrous, pulsating bassline for another deep, dark + sexy remix.
The Magician’s “When The Night Is Over” remix EP is out NOW with additional remixes by Brodinski, Claptone & Ejeca. Continue Reading

After a short hiatus over the summer, The Magician is back in action with the 35th installment of his very popular Magic Tape series. As usual, he’s kept his track list undisclosed, but thanks to some well-versed Soundcloud fans, we know that The Magician has included new ones from Medlar, Skream, Anna Lunoe, Luxury, and more. Glad to have Magic Tapes back in my life. √+

Today, Arches have given us the premiere for their first mix, featuring one of the aforementioned originals in addition to new ones from Isaac Tichauer, Peter & The Magician, Cyril Hahn, and more. Keep an eye on these guys!
Miami is in for a magical treat on Halloween night. Heralded as the DJ’s DJ, the dance floor maestro, and the mixtape assassin, The Magician has quickly taken the title of the godfather of good times.
