A DIY project with worldwide scope, Slow Magic is universal and inclusive. It's cosmic electronic music culled from the ether, yet crafted with human hands. It's joyous, escapist, multi-disciplinary art that mixes transcendent performance with the nostalgic intimacy of two teenagers staying up too late on the phone.
After the release of 2012's beloved and critically-acclaimed Triangle, Slow Magic became an international movement after touring with artists like Gold Panda and XXYYXX. Crowds found a masked man in their midst, bathed in fantastic light, with electronic triggers and a drum. The future-primitive combination infused the project's electronic compositions with new life.
How To Run Away, Slow Magic's debut with Downtown Records, reflects this growth, oozing both otherworldly beauty and a mastery of production. Lead single "Girls" is deconstructionist house with an organic pulse and collaged, handcrafted samples. "Hold Still" sculpts elastic organs and jazz piano into an emotionally-pummeling finale, while the melancholy "Let U Go" merges watery dub with spectral piano and "Closer" plays like a '90s R&B fever dream.
Slow Magic is music by your imaginary friend.
DJ DIALS / Noah Bennet Cunningham
I am so tired. Like right now, if I could fall asleep I might drown in my own slobber.
I'm not tired of playing music for people- I like doing that.
I've been djing for over 14 years! I've done pretty much every aspect of DJING from playing in weird other countries to celebrity weddings, barmitzvahs, and clubs of all different shapes and sizes. I play appropriate music for any occasion, meaning I am not too proud to play some tear out dubstep, throwback electro, or some 90's rap shit. My personal music tastes does shine and I pride myself as being a tastemaker- so expect the best- no shitty music from this guy. I have been writing and producing music for a very long and my first 12' record was released on Brownswood Electr*c Volume 2- Giles Peterson's Brownswood Recordings. I have hundreds of beats that will never see the light of day, mostly downtempo and the occasionally syrup dripped rap jawn. My album will come when it comes, I am not tripping and you should be. I live in San Francisco and I throw parties- tastemaker shows. I try to challenge the audience and have a fun time doing it… I want to do memorable parties with good music. It's hard. I personally play all the time up down the west coast. I've headlined shows and I've done a bunch of support. I've played alongside Modeselektor, Thom Yorke, Four Tet, Madlib, Edit, The Roots, Daedalus, The Gaslamp Killer, Joy Orbison, SBTRKT, Shlohmo, Just Blaze, Harmonic 313, Flying Lotus, Joker, Skream, Rustie, Dj Funk, Dorian Concept, Lorn, Lazer Sword, Hudson Mohawke, Jakes, EOTO, Mimosa, and Eskmo. Follow me on twitter so I look real cool.
Seriously though, I love good music and I love good people. I wouldn't be doing what I do if it weren't for those two simple facts.
Follow your bliss.
