Sun Araw & Deep Magic

When Sun Araw (Cameron Stallones) and Deep Magic (Alex Gray) played in Amsterdam, Extra Extra met them for dinner at a fish restaurant just before the show. Both musicians are from Los Angeles, and make music that transports the listener to unknown territory. We talked about how R. Kelly can give you chills, steamy dancehall parties in Jamaica but also about the sensation of music that is hard to talk about, and goes beyond the erotic. The kind of music that feels “like a hand on your leg, a hand on your shoulder, like someone touches you in three different places”. [RR]
