Magic Affair biography

Magic Affair was formerly known as the Mysterious Art project (M.A.!). Mike Staab produced this band's hits like Omen and Karma (Omen II) which were created around a camp fire, on a Friday 13th. Omen entered Top 100 on May 13th 1989, and reached #1. It was at place #2 for the whole 1989 year (right after Kaoma's Lambada). At this time, the project was made of Nicole Boeuf, Stephanie Trautmann, Michael Krautter and Tillmann Uhrmacher.

Omen II had the same success a year later. 2 albums were released, Omen - The Story in 1989 and Mystic Mountains in 1991.

The project Magic Affair was created in 1994 with the singer Franca Morgano and the rapper AK Swift (rap) after auditionning 3 rappers and 5 singers. Successful in less than 2 years, Magic Affair climbed from highlight to highlight. They sold numerous of records and they had many chart-triumphs all over the world. The first song Omen III reached number 1 in the German chart six weeks after the being on the market, and top 10 in several other countries. For instance it was # 5 in Israel, # 9 at MTV, and # 18 in UK. The video was on high rotation on TV channels like VIVA, MTV, Disney, DSF and RTL. The single sold gold and platinum in Germany, gold in Austria.

The follow-up Give Me All Your Love entered top 40 in UK, top 5 in Germany (it reached # 7 on the German charts), and reached # 6 at MTV. It sold gold once again in Germany and won the prestigous Echo Award in 1995 for the "single of the year". Then came In The Middle Of The Night which was # 43 in UK and entered Top 30 on the German charts. The last single from this album was Fire, a little weaker than the previous ones, which went # 4 in Israel's dance chart. A remixes CD was released on month later, in December. End 1994, due to a dispute between AK and Franca who wouldn't bear his macho temper, AK Swift was replaced by Alfonso Daniel Morgan. But this new rapper had no success, so AK Swift came back in a few months. Then in February 1995 both Franca Morgana and AK Swift were fired.

Summer 1995 : Magic Affair got two new faces : Anita Davis and Jannet De Lara. Their first song to be released with their voices was The Rhythm Makes You Wanna Dance, but this single did not very well in the charts. A remixes CD was released in October, however. The follow-up was Energy Of Light, a great eurodance track. After that the single World Of Freedom was released. It was a summer hit. The second album released in 1996 was called PhenOMENia, produced by Mike Staab and co-produced by the megaeuro producer Cyborg . The producer and writer Axel Breitung , and the vocalists Lori Glori and Daisy Dee also took part to the album.

Jannett de Lara was fired in September 1996, and again a new member came in Magic Affair : the rapper Raz-ma-Taz . Then the track Bohemian Rhapsody was released. This cover was featured on the Queen Dance Traxx I, which is an album with dance remakes of some of Queen's greatest hits by several great dance artists (like Music Instructor and Blümchen). This song did not have any vocals. After that, the single Break These Chains was released from the album PhenOMENia, before Magic Affair changed from Dance Label C.D.L. (EMI) to Dutch Dance Label CNR, where the song Night Of The Raven was released September 1997. It's a song in real Magic Affair style where this time we can hear Raz-Ma-Taz's rap. Unfortunately, nothing has been released for sure since this single apart from Sacrifice, an instrumental track released under the number CNR 598899, probably only on vinyl and in Holland.

2000 : DJ Valium has released a cover/remix of Omen III.

2003 : After more than 6 years of silence, Magic Affair finally came back with a brand new single entitled Fly Away (La Serenissima). The sound was eurotrance, reminding a little the dream-house style (like Zhi-Vago). It was inspired by Rondo Veneziano. The single featured the voice of a solo vocalist who was no other than... Franca Morgano herself ! It was released as vinyl with 2 versions : a Yanou mix and a FFM Club mix, under the Mr Popper label. The producer of the project is still Mike Staab.

2004 : Fly Away reached #13 in German DJ Playlist and entered Swiss charts at position #75. The maxi was released in March and included a CD ROM part including the video clip, apart from 4 mixes, and a track called Prelude on which one could her the voice of a rapper... Magic Affair appeared live in Club Rotation (Viva) on the 13th of March.

2008 : on April 18th, Magic Affair released The New Mixes of Omen III, 14 years before their hit. It contained remixes by the Nightshifterz, Pussylickerz, Dirty Boyz and Blackzone.

In October, Magic Affair were back with a brand new track (actually an unreleased song originally recorded in 2003), entitled Stigmata (Of Love) featuring AK Swift and an unknown vocalist.

2009 : in February, Franca and AK performed live at RTL Ultimative Chart Show (Omen III reached #24 from the top 100 most successful dance floor hits of all time). They started working on a new album. Producers will be Mike Staab, Rainer Kempf and Bernd Waldstadt. In May, Mike Staab died.

2010 : Magic Affair started working on new tracks for their new album.

2013 : Magic Affair now feature a new rapper : German MC and songwriter Nitro replaces AK Swift.
