The Magician Can Tell the Future of Music, "Never Reveals His Tricks"

Magic isn't real. At least not in the sense of pulling rabbits out of hats. Or cutting ladies in half.

But music is one of the rare and mysterious mediums in our world that can render man spellbound. With just a melody and a beat, a night can be transformed from mundane to extraordinary, especially when The Magician's in town.

This Belgian DJ-producer has built his name as a tastemaker with his Magic Tapes mix series. Meanwhile, his remixes and original tracks prove he can deal slick tropical grooves and disco-era feels just as easily as he blends them.

We here at Crossfade recently spoke with this conjurer of the impossible to try to learn his tricks.
