The Group

Anita Davis
The american born Anita Davis studied song, drama and dance in New York. After her studies she
worked in Broadway and she has also been working as a background singer.

Raz-Ma-Taz
Was once a rapper in the famous group E-Rotic, who have hade several big hits.

Mike Staab
This man is sort of mysterious, not many people knows who he really is, but almost everyone has heard
something by him. Mike Staab is the creative mind behind Magic Affair. He describes himself as a DJ
and he always knows what the dancefloor needs and can therefor create new smashing hits.

Mike used to DJ in a place called The Cave, later called La Java in Aschaffenburg as a hard rock DJ with a mainly Biker audience.

Later he got a break and landed a job with the Schuler and Breasinger GMBH [note: spelling may be incorrect] and spun records at Aladins also in Aschaffenburg. In 1985 he did some help on a record called the "Sounds of Frankfurt" which was some of the beginnings of European Techno. This was his big start. In the late 80s Mike Staab had created the DJ cult era and could fill the club with over a 1000 heads every night. Mike formed the group Mysterious Art and created the Bestseller "Das Omen". As a DJ Mike was going Head to head with a DJ called Torsten Fenslau as a Techno mix master to which very few DJs continued to mix music in that region. Torstens success with Abfahrt Records landed him some extra nights spinning for a radio station called HR3 in Frankfurt and was taking the lead.

At this time Mike was busy pushing his own record company producing Cuts for local DJs. "Synergy at work" and so on. In 1993, sitting in Mikes record Shop, Mike said he would revive Mysterious Art with a new name. He came up with Magic Affair.

Torsten Fenslau, Mikes nemesis past away that year in December in a car accident.

On April 18, 2008, Magic Affair released The New Mixes of Omen III, 14 years after their hit.
