Top Sydney export Cassian has released the fourth and final re-work of hit single “Magical,” off his debut longform effort Laps. Forged by Sony and Atlantic UK alumnus Vintage Culture, the downtempo, alt-dance piece is transformed into a peak time-ready club cut that fuses Zolly’s vocals into a bed of buzzing analog progressions and pounding kicks. The Brazilian icon’s take on “Magical” follows prior interpretations from Enamour, Made In Paris, and Cassian himself.
“Magical,” featuring ZOLLY (aka Phil Slabber of Crooked Colours fame) came to light as the third single leading up to Laps—showing off the GRAMMY-nominated producer’s wide range and creating an alt-dance hit in the making. The single has racked up nearly two million streams to date and continues to climb.
Laps is the fruit of five years’ studio labor by Cassian, finally coming to fruition on June 26 this year. Led by singles “Lafayette,” the pop-leaning “Same Things (ft. Gabrielle Current), and “Magical,” Laps brims with the writing and engineering prowess that’s brought the producer to household name status in recent years. In listening, it becomes clear why legends like RÜFÜS DU SOL, What So Not, and Hayden James have all sought studio sessions with him over the years. Laps additionally received remixes by the likes of Yotto, Durante, and Lastlings, to name a few.
