This is Where the Magic Happens

Bacayne’s debut release with Stereoptico, Azure Magic is finally here.

This is the product of the last few decades of music flying through the airwaves, mixing together and landing in the list of influences of a producer that has as much talent as value for his own self expression. With a background in rock, a penchant for downtempo, both nostalgia and enthusiasm for hiphop and an unrelenting gameness for experimentation, Bacayne makes records that sound totally new but make you feel familiar at the same time.

A proud Dominican native, Bacayne is a great example of the cultural melding pot that is the island, sitting halfway between North and South America and with a great history of just getting it done and not taking no for an answer. If his debut album is any indicator, we have a lot to be excited about in the future.
