The Magician
The Magician
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.

Previously a member of revered Balearic disco duo, Aeroplane, 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 re-work of Lykke Li's "I Follow Rivers" in 2011 (which has had over 80 million views on YouTube and topped the charts across Europe) and Clean Bandit's "Rather Be" in 2014.

After signing to Parlophone/Warner Records and joining the Machine Management roster of artists in late 2013, 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.

2017 see The Magician sign a new major record deal with Sony with a host of new releases and collaborations planned.

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 broke the 65th mark whilst along the way gaining a cult following of disco, pop and house fans. Everywhere The Magician DJs people fall under his spell.
Bit Funk
Bit Funk
Growing up on Canada's Atlantic Coast, this Brooklyn resident has quickly earned a reputation as one of house and disco's most respected artists. His memorable hooks and smooth melodies weave a signature sound that delivers equally well on the dance floor, or as the soundtrack to your daily life. The former drummer's productions draw their influences from far and wide, paying respects to the classics while making their mark in the contemporary club scene.

With remixes for Seven Lions, Christina Perri, Viceroy, Treasure Fingers, Goldroom, among others, Bit Funk has garnered support from heavyweights such as Alan Braxe, The Magician, RAC, Oliver, Jody Wisternoff and Flosstradamus. His remixes and originals have been covered by the likes of Billboard, CLASH and VICE, topped Hype Machine's charts countless times and been featured on some of the biggest Spotify playlists including multiple appearances on the prestigious "New Music Friday".

In 2016, Bit Funk released the pop crossover single Off The Ground, which garnered over 4 million streams on Spotify. The track hit mainstream radio in North America, peaked at #13 on the Top 40 charts in Canada and would go on to win the 2017 Juno Award for Dance Recording of the Year. Bit Funk is gearing up to release his first EP in 2 years, tentatively scheduled to drop in the spring of 2018.
Fady D
Fady Rizk, better known by his stage name as “Fady D,” was born and raised in Cairo, Egypt where he was inspired by the French touch scene to blend the old and new together with an upbeat disco flavor. He aims to bring traditional Middle Eastern instruments and samples into modern house sounds and introduce new and contrasting moods into an ever-transforming dance music scene.
