[SME MEETS] Dynamo *Exclusive Interview* by wearesme

Dynamo is arguably the best close-up magician around, having performed to some of the biggest stars in the world. He has performed for the likes of Tinie Tempah, Paris Hilton, Example, Busta Rhymes, Snoop Dogg and of course SME!

Dynamo, born Steve Frayne, grew up on Bradford’s Delph Hill Estate, one of the most violent and deprived estates in the north of England. He first learned magic from his grandfather and developed it during trips to New Orleans.

As word spread about his magic tricks he soon found himself performing on the celebrity circuit for stars like Paris Hilton and Busta Rhymes. He released an independent DVD called ‘Underground Magic’ featuring celebrities such as Coldplay, Gwenyth Paltrow and Snoop Dogg. The DVD generated considerable press in the UK and lead to appearances on shows such as Richard & Judy and a Channel 4 special ‘Dynamo’s Estate Of Mind’.

He followed up ‘Underground Magic’ with the release of the DVD called ‘Concrete Playground’ and his popularity only continues to grow. Most recently Dynamo worked with Panasonic on a promotional campaign for the TA1 Camera, which saw him performing for a host of musicians and DJ’s; all of which he documented using the Panasonic camera.

This week SME were delighted to have the chance to sit down and have a bit of a chat with Dynamo about the year gone by, the year ahead and his taste in music.

As SME advised the other day, we had the pleasure of being invited to a secret party at Juju in Chelsea in celebration of Dynamo TV, sponsored by Panasonic.

On the night Dynamo performed some mind blowing magic and you can now check out some footage from the night below.

Keep an eye out for SME in the elastic band trick where he took a tenner from my wallet and proceeded to pass it through an elastic band as if it were thin air!

[SNAPS + VIDEO] Dynamo TV Secret Party @ Juju with Panasonic 15/12/10 by wearesme

On Wednesday night SME were invited down to watch the amazing Dynamo work his magic while being filmed for Dynamo TV in promotion of the new Panasonic TA1 HD Mobile Camera.

We’ve already had the pleasure of meeting Dynamo; he blew us away and Wednesday night was no different.

Making his way around the room, he performed a series of tricks ranging from your standard card guessing, to putting 50p coins into beer bottles we had just been drinking from! Each trick more mind-blowing than the previous. The looks on people’s faces was priceless! We will bring you footage of the night as soon as it becomes available so you can see for your self.

SME were even lucky enough to win a Panasonic TA1 camera which we got to play around with today and cannot recommend it enough! The picture is amazing and its so small and light you wont even notice it in your pocket on a night out.

We took some snaps on the night which you can see below. And if you want to see Dynamo in action, you can also check out the latest episode of Dynamo TV featuring DJ Whoo Kid while your here.
