((Peter and the Magician)) Band Profile and Upcoming New York City Concerts - Oh My Rockness

Peter and the Magician

pictured The Magician
Peter and the Magician are the international electro dance production team of Yuksek (Peter... from France) and Stephen Fasano (The Magician... from Brussels). Both Yuksek and Fasano have done plenty of other stuff, but they've recently come together to release some JAMZ (and I mean JAMZ) as Peter and the Magician.

The instrumental (minus a few robot chants) club thumpers they've created represent some of the best electro I've heard in a long, long time. Start by listening to their first single "Twist" and you'll know what I mean. If you can stay still when you're cranking "Twist," well, you're a much chiller person than I am. Peter and the Magician make me want to MOVE.

This is right up there with the best works of Simian Mobile Disco, Digitalism, Boys Noize and Justice. Hell, any of 'em really.

The mighty indie dance label Kitsune has released the "Twist" EP. Go find it. Go bring it to a party. Go put it on the stereo in the center of the room. And then go freak your friends out with your big time dance moves. They'll be all like "ohhhhhhhhhhh snap!" Damn, this is good.
