Pedro Magina is a portuguese musician, synth player and composer that had his first solo outing, Nazca Lines, on the french label Ruralfaune in 2010, which Boomkat described as being a record that "perfectly embodies the spirit of envisaging the landscape of the future from a paradoxically nostalgia-entrenched vantage point" and points out "three great synth pieces on this disc, the finest of which is the imperious 'The Love There That's Sleeping', which manages to evoke Vangelis and Angelo Badalamenti in all the right ways".

In 2011, Magina released a tape called Nineteen Hundred and Eighty Five on LA's NotNotFun, that allowed him to tour across Europe with his good friends, the portuguese band Gala Drop.

Being solo or with his other band, Aquaparque, he shared the stage with Hype Williams, Micachu and the Shapes, Mount Kimbie, Atlas Sound, James Blake, Animal Collective, among others.

After the sabbatic year of 2012, playing only with Aquaparque, Pedro Magina released a 10'' vinyl, called Gecko, in the swiss Mental Groove Records ( first home of Miss Kittin, releasing also Tiefschwartz, Michael Mayer and Sun Araw ) which is supposed to create the illusional bridge between Nineteen Hundred and Eighty Five and his upcoming album.


BOOMKAT
"The Rural Faune label's new Synth Series is dedicated to "Peace and innermind travels", expanding on this notion by describing its sound as "Cosmic variations, synth age explorations, astral travels and soft trances". Portuguese artist Pedro Magina certainly grabs such ideas with both hands, and over the course of an all-too fleeting seventeen minutes he sets about designing a strange, melodious synthscape that perfectly channels the spirit of the early digital boom of the 1980s. The recordings are flawed and prone to distorting here and there, and this is very much a DIY affair, but Nazca Lines perfectly embodies the spirit of envisaging the landscape of the future from a paradoxically nostalgia-entrenched vantage point. There are three great synth pieces on this disc, the finest of which is the imperious 'The Love There That's Sleeping', which manages to evoke Vangelis and Angelo Badalamenti in all the right ways."
