Magic Touch mixes the psychedelic ethos of San Francisco with the house movements of Chicago, Detroit and smatters the whole thing with a solid nod to the UK rave underground
Damon Palermo has been making adventurous house and disco music under the moniker Magic Touch since August 2011. In a short time the producer/DJ has amassed an impressive following and several well-received releases, kicking off with the critically-lauded 100% Silk release "I Can Feel The Heat," which was a recommended release of the week at Boomkat and made 20JazzFunkGreats Best of 2011 list. Following his heady debut, Palermo released a split 12" with close collaborator Ital and a collaborative EP with Japanese producer Sapphire Slows.
Magic Touch has continued his prolific touring and release schedule. In 2013-2014 he released the "Nothing More" EP for Tensnake's True Romance label as well as "Palermo House Gang", a full-length for 100% Silk which is his most realized, collaborative venture to date. Most recently, he released "Found Love" also on Tensnake's label, and a single track on Kenji Takimi's "Crue L II Cafe".
Magic Touch live sets mix the psychedelic ethos of San Francisco with the house movements of Chicago, Detroit and smatters the whole thing with a solid nod to the UK rave underground. He has played live at Sonar, Unsound and CTM, and is also a formidable DJ, appearing at Berlin's legendary Panorama Bar, Lux Frágil and WWW Shibuya.
