From the deep pits of despair that my prior feature left us in, we rise like a phoenix, our wings flapping to the vibrant beats of The Magician’s remix of AlunaGeorge’s I’m In Control. The brisk sass of the original, which features Popcaan, is magnified by the bedazzling colors and lively future edged bounces we so often associate with and love about the Belgian producer. The final product is a sweet and vivacious house anthem, one that beckons us to hit the dance floor straight away.

I can’t wait to catch Alina Baraz & Galimatias dole out their sensual and sleek electronic serenades when they play the super duper sold out Popscene at San Francisco’s DNA Lounge in exactly two weeks from now. In the meantime, let’s dance to a jolting remix of Alina Baraz & Galimatias’ Fantasy by Belgian producer The Magician. It’s a crisply bouncing, bass booming blend of future house and deep house, one that’s hypnotically pulsing and steady. The Magician’s remix is a free download if you head over to Soundcloud.

I knew we were in for a treat the moment I saw a new The Magician track arise. It’s been awhile now since he last thrilled us with his last original, Sunlight, featuring red hot UK fellas Years & Years. It’s also been a moment since the Belgian producer gave us his wicked remix of Years & Years’ King. Praise the music gods he’s back with his first track of the year, Together! The fusion of deep and future house is as bouncy, colorful, and vibrant as I’d expect from The Magician. Together shines with a golden radiance and bursts with a summery joy that will seep into every molecule in your body, urging you to dance. The track will be out as a single on June 22nd, and it’s only The Magician’s third release on young label POTION.

I was jumping up and down with joy when I saw this one arise this morning. Alright, maybe I wasn’t exactly jumping up and down (not a good idea at work), but I really was in spirit! And I was grinning ear to ear, too. I’ve always loved Belgian producer The Magician’s exhilarating and classy house tracks. His newest release is a remix of red hot British act Years & Years’ King! The original is already such an intoxicating, upbeat blend of R&B and house that only Years & Years can deliver so flawlessly. The Magician gives the song a steady pulse and stabbing bounce that bring the song some thrilling future and deep house qualities. It’s a jam I can’t refuse.

I find Belgian producer The Magician’s Sunlight absolutely irresistible. I mean, those catchy hooks, the luminous progressions, the delicious warmth, who can resist them? And on top of all of that, the track features soon to be mega stars Years & Years, meaning we also get some Olly Alexander smooth crooning, too. There have been some magnificent remixes of Sunlight over the past months, but I don’t know if any of them have been as superbly energetic and thrilling as Los Angeles producer Elephante’s new take on the tune. Surprisingly, Elephante goes for a darker, edgier future house inflected sound on the track, blending it in with his usual powerhouse progressive style. It’s just as massively uplifting and entrancing, the perfect track to jump to recklessly, like there’s no tomorrow.

Belgian producer The Magician’s killer track Sunlight, which features Years & Years, gets a remix by Swedish producer Tobtok. It isn’t a huge refix, but Tobtok easily manages to infuse the song with just the right amount of sunshine and groove. The resulting tropics and disco tinged dance magic is sure to appeal to fans of music by Viceroy.

UK electronic duo Blonde proves their mettle when it comes to remixing music, after having delighted our ears aplenty with their funky originals. In some ways, it makes perfect sense that they’d choose to remix Belgian producer The Magician’s Sunlight, featuring Years & Years. Both acts go for a piano chord laced groovy house style on their music. Blonde succeeds at imbuing Sunlight with, well, even more sun, smoothing out the track and giving it an aura of soothing refreshing rapture.

Parisian producer Darius offers us this resplendent, luscious remix of The Magician’s Olly Alexander (Years & Years) featuring Sunlight. It’s a smooth and slick take on the infectious song. Though summery, it’s more easily associated with that moment at dusk when the heat starts to recede after a sweltering hot day.
