Mystery shrouds electronic producer Slow Magic, who wears a colorful mask when he elevates the dancefloor with his tricky twists. His 2014 release, How to Run Away, pushes his “Serenity Now!” style with fresh bounce and curious craft (a nurturing reminder to listeners that you can be chill without being braindead). Critics applauded Slow Magic’s deft jams, and fans of Triangle (his previous release that launched him to a broader audience, on which he toured with hometown hero XXYYXX) will be happy to be set adrift on its trance-inducing vibes live. Slow Magic is like a freaky Pied Piper here, luring listeners to more intriguing edges of dance music while convincing them he’s just a guide to their independent soul-searching and epiphany-triggering escapes.
