Magnifik stands for magnificent. Not the musician or the band, but the music. It's all about the love of music.Behind the project is that gentleman Ashley Feraude. If you know him, then it makes sense why the songs are romantic, calm, a touch melancholic? But let’s not take this all too seriously. Yes the tracks are a result of major life experiences but you can surely hear the light-hearted 80’s synth pop influence in there too.At this point you would probably like proof that Magnifik is more than some guy in a bedroom playing on a synth to a cat. Well, among clubs and lounge gigs, he performed at the Warehouse Music Festival to thousands of screamers and a bunch of security guards with earplugs. The performance was alongside Martyn Solveig, Deadmou5 and others of that calibre.Magnifik has singles out on Yes Yes Records and Troublemakers Music and remixes of such acts as PNAU on labels including Etc Etc Klub Kids, Bam Bam Records. The singles have been around the ARIA Club Chart and got air play as far as Radio 1 in the UK, Fritz radio in Germany and as close at Triple J in Australia. The tracks have received remix treatment by the likes of Nightriders, Toni Toni Lee, Jam Express, Doublin Aunts, Diamond Lights and Peking Duk.Two songs even featured on the highly successful compilations including Ministry of Sound Chillout Sessions XIV, Hed Kandi Beach House 2012, Defected Records Niki Beach Miami (Mixed by Miguel Migs) and RAW FM 2011. How successful? Even his grandmother has a copy of all of them.But most importantly, there is a full length album ‘Amateur’ released in July 2012.Apparently in French it means ‘the lover of something’ which in his case is music. Reaction has been great and hopefully you'll fall in love with it too. If not, then wait till you hear his the follow up EP and the remixes he is working on now.
