Event: Slow Magic with Kodak To Graph, Daktyl
Date: September 12, 2014
Location: The Roxy
”Slow Magic is music by your imaginary friend.” —This is pretty much any description we’ll find about this mysterious producer who creates synth-based electronica tracks. After signing on to Downtown Records, he recently dropped his sophomore album, How To Run Away, which captures the idea of chasing a dream and running away to catch that dream.
DJ sets aren’t always the funnest to watch, and honestly I don’t understand how some people just stand and stare. Like seriously are you having fun or….? But Slow Magic truly holds it down when it comes to a performance. He came out to the sold out room at The Roxy with a lit-up neon mask and fringe outfit to reflect his mystical persona. Weaving in materials from both How To Run Away and his debut release Triangle, his energy kept the audience engaged with his live percussions and drops of familiar tunes such as Destiny’s Child’s Say My Name and his remix of Giraffage’s Even Though ft. XXYYXX.
He ended his set with an encore of Hold Still, my favorite single off How To Run Away. Listen below:
