On the 31st of December 2012, after decades of sending radio waves into space, astronomers received a strange signal from the Alpha Centauri system. What at first appeared to be a random stream of tones and pulses gradually resolved into a complex pattern, that while alien, seemed eerily familiar. Dubbed “Silverstar” the signal was sent to research teams worldwide, for further analysis.
…or so goes Silverstar‘s bio, a two-man production team hailing from down under. The Australian duo’s debut single, “Music Is Magic,” is just about everything you can ask for in dance music. Sure to satisfy everyone from the occasional indie convert to the most devout of nu-disco disciples, Silverstar’s first jump into the scene is a slice of synth and sample heaven. And don’t forget to check out the video for the track — directed by Tim White and filmed on location in Morocco — above.
