After You're Gone (The Magician Remix)

Takun Williams

In lieu of a Comedown Sunday, here's some sobering news.
As you undoubtedly know, the Magician is one of my favorite acts. Really he's discos of-the-moment golden boy, with a slew of successful international tour dates, and each successive new release supported by tastemakers the world over. That's why this update, from his Facebook page, comes as a particular shock.

Yesterday around 2.30 am at Club Bonsoir in Bern/Swiss, The Magician was playing and has been attacked by someone with a chemical liquid that he threw to his face. 
He had to stop playing and went to the hospital at emergencies. He is better now.
To all the people who were there yesterday, if you have any information, video, pics,.. Can you please send them to 
To help local Police, we want to find this person and punish as appropriate.
Thank you.

Incomprehensible. Incorrigible. Just wow.
Here's to hoping Music Terrorism doesn't become a 'thing'. There's enough shit in this world already, the last thing we need is sabotage of art as well.

Luckily, the man is ok, which means we have more fabulous work to look forward to. Check out his most recent Tyson remix to see what I mean:
