40 Questions: MAGA

40 Questions: MAGA

Since launching their imprint in the summer of 2022, the 4-piece Scenarios collective of Sean Doron, Emanuel Satie, Tim Engelhart, and MAGA have released some highly impressive collaborations between themselves on the label.

Together the four artists aim to combine their own unique talents to offer a bespoke experience which puts it focus on deep, melodic, and infectious club sounds, through carefully curated label releases and events.

Despite being just half a year into their endeavour, Scenarios has already seen an impressive level of success, and if things continue on their current trend the group will be serious players in the European club scene come the latter stages of 2023.

The previously mentioned co-founder MAGA joins us this week for our latest edition of 40 Questions, a French artist who alongside his previous work on Scenarios, has also released his music on many well respected record labels, such as Stil Vor Talent, The Gardens Of Babylon, and Kindisch.

The feature finds him chat about everything from his time playing at Burning Man and who his dream collaboration might be with, to his experiences of eating ostrich and travelling to Japan. Read our first 40 Questions feature of 2023 below.
