The Magician – ‘I Don’t Know What To Do’ (Kitsune)

The Magician – ‘I Don’t Know What To Do’ (Kitsune)

Belgian nu-disco duo Vito De Luca and Stephen Fasano AKA Aeroplane landed in 2007 with what seemed like an endless stream of funky remixes for artists as varied as Shortwave Set, Robbie Williams and their mix of ‘Paris’ by Friendly Fires dripped with hazy ambient cool.
All looked well until just prior to their debut long player, Fasano left to pursue other projects. Just as well as the album Aeroplane released, 2010’s ‘We can’t fly’ was underwhelming to say the least. After impressing with a furiously uplifting piano led mix of Lykki Li’s ‘I follow rivers’ earlier this year, his debut release under The Magician guise shows that when leaving Aeroplane, he took the good tunes.
Featuring Danish vocalist Jeppe Laursen, ‘I just don’t know what to do’ is Camp italo disco straight out of 1983, uplifting and just the right side of cheese with one of those choruses so catchy just one refrain away from being annoying, it can be filed right next to the finest Aeroplane tracks without any noticeable decrease in quality.
Amongst the remixes the Fabian mix looks towards Friendly Fire’s ‘Pala’ album while the Plastic Plates mix is a prime cut of disco ball tinged house music for the more discerning dance floor out there. 7/10
