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 Electronic-Pop 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 remix of Lykke Li’s ‘I Follow Rivers’ in 2011 (which has had over 300 million streams and topped the charts across Europe).
After signing to Parlophone/Warner Records 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 and Top 100 Billboard in the US, 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 Julian Perretta, TCTS, Ebenezer and Hamza.
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 96th mark, whilst along the way gaining a cult following of House & Disco fans.
