2018 release. Be With Records present the first ever vinyl issue of Sorcerer's White Magic, originally released in 2007. A perfect summer record, White Magic was the lauded CD-only debut album by Sorcerer (Californian Dan Judd, one half of Windsurf with Hatchback). Back in summer 2007, this majestic set gently nestled itself into the Balearic soundtrack-to-summer slot for many, making him a household name for cosmic disco heads alongside the likes of Lindstrøm, Metro Area, Todd Terje, Mudd, Studio, and Quiet Village. In the intervening years, exceptional producers have created vibrant variations on the dreamy, dubby, melodic nu-disco theme. Happily, the emergence of such luminaries as Jex Opolis, Harvey Sutherland, Suzanne Kraft, Tornado Wallace, et al has only served to make the master -- Sorcerer -- sound ever more brilliant and vital. Utilizing his array of guitars, drum machines, synths, and trusty MPC, the loved-up Sorcerer sound inspires halcyon memories of warm days, endless sunsets and pure youthful abandon. Influenced by surf, '80s dance pop, acid-R&B, space jazz, krautrock, disco, dub, and AM radio gold, his music maps a tour through a uniquely Californian lifestyle. Yet when music so vividly captures a vibe and a feeling, it can make writing about it appear almost redundant. Instead, to glean the full color of what your turntable will soon gratefully radiate. Remastered by Simon Francis. Pressed on heavyweight double vinyl. Presented in a deluxe gatefold jacket with freshly commissioned artwork throughout from original designer Rich Robinson; Edition of 500.
