Black Magic Disco has changed. For those who have enjoyed his previous appearances on these pages, this may not be welcome news. His brand of cheerful, melodic disco has warmed the hearts of many in what have been fairly humourless musical climes of late. But in recent months his sound has acquired a harder edge, and this latest mixtape is an altogether more serious proposition. He hasn’t lost his sense for a banger though, and it’s well worth a listen.
Just to confuse things, he’s also released a nicely laid-back, instrumental hip hop jam called ‘I Believe in Music’. Yeah, you heard us. Next steps from here? We suggest you listen to both and let us know what you think of the new direction(s) here, here or (what the hell) even here.
