Featured Artist: Computer Magic


Going simply by the name, Danz, the voice and force behind the synth-fueled tunes of Computer Magic says the project started out as a small one. After months in New York City juggling school and work with no time to concentrate on writing music, the fledgling artist fled to her family home in Florida. Deep in the south she found the time and solace to write and record music in her bedroom with just a laptop and some lyrics. Danz posted her creations online and the buzz began. In the months to follow, she would return to New York in time to release her debut EP, Electric Fences, last year. We love her reverb-heavy, keyboard dreamscapes, and think that you will too. Her track “Grand Junction” plays in the background of our recent clip, Let The Sea Set You Free.
