In The Booth: Queen Magic
Splendour-bound DJ/producer Queen Magic brings big vibes for a night in the DJ booth.
Ahead of his appearance at the upcoming Splendour In The Grass on the Red Bull Music Academy stage, Queen Magic put on his DJ cap for us to give some hints as to what we can expect:
Take us through a set with Queen Magic:
What track are we opening up with?
It really depends on the night, but let's pretend I’m playing for you right now:
You’re miles away from home and you want to show some love for your home town/country. Which friend’s work are you gonna play?
The audience are well-oiled, now it’s time to make them lose their shit. What track is going to do it?
If it’s my friends on the dancefloor, which it usually is then Teedra Moses - Be Your Girl (Kaytranada Edition)
Which is usually followed closely by Janet Jackson - If (Kaytranada Remix). Once you’re in Kaytranada world.
You’ve got ‘em now, got a track show off how deep your taste goes?
I wouldn't say this goes deep but this is a jam that a lot of people haven't heard that they should hear! Mbongwana Star:
Energy levels are waning slightly, what’s a fail safe pick me up – either for yourself, or the crowd?
I had to go to Compton the other week, I didn't see Kendrick though…
We’re on the home stretch, what’s a brand new track you’re going to test out?
Long awaited Cleopold release, this man is going to take over!
It’s time for a breather, got a track with some real emotional feels?
Dev Hynes is always the best for this:
Good night all and thanks for coming – what track are you going to leave everyone with?

If it’s the end of the night I'd probably sneak this in too:
