Stephen Frayne AKA Dynamo has taken the magic world by storm over the past few years. Dynamo is from the mean streets of Delph Hill Estate, Bradford and this has shaped his performance style.
His style is modern and urban though his techniques are universally impressive. When he is performing in the street everyone from the kids to OAPs can get involved and appreciate his tricks.
Of course, Dynamo’s style is important but style is nothing without substance and Dynamo has an array of amazing tricks. Though much of magic and mentalism is still shrouded in mystery there are some practitioners who are willing to share their secrets. Check out the tricks below and soon you could be performing like Dynamo.
Cigarette Through Coin
Dynamo puts a cigarette through both a coin and a playing card in Concrete Playground. You can do it too with one of these trick coins.
With one of these coins you can put a cigarette, a rolled up note or pencil right through. Use a coin from the audience then switch it with your gimmicked coin for maximum impact.
10p Coin In Bottle
Dynamo does quite a few tricks using glass bottles. If you have seen him explode bottles you will have seen how that amazes onlookers. Another thing he does is put objects such as coins and even phones into bottles.
Using this trick coin you too can put a coin inside a glass bottle. The coin comes with a complete routine telling you how to perform the trick. The only other thing you will need is rubber bands. To buy it just click the image below.
Coin Under Watch
Without a doubt one of Dynamo’s best tricks and one that he has used time and again is placing a coin under someone’s watch. Fortunately for you there is now a video showing you exactly how to perform this trick.
Dynamo performs many levitations. He levitates £10 notes, a guitar and even himself! You can learn levitation tricks yourself with these 2 great products.
Master Levitation System DVD
If you want to learn the art of performing levitations this DVD is a great place to start. Steve Fearson has been practising levitations for 20 years and teaches close up levitations that are ideal for parties or street performances.
The DVD is not about gimmicks, it teaches you a levitation system and this guy is even endorsed by David Copperfield!
The Tarantula is an electronic reel that allows you to perform amazing levitations anywhere. The DVD includes instructions to perform numerous tricks including hovering rings, floating dollar bills (or £10 notes) and ‘haunted pack’. Check out the video below, you will be amazed!
Guess the Drawing
You may have seen Dynamo seemingly read someone’s mind and draw exactly what they have drawn. He does this standing back to back with them with no possible way he could see what the person is drawing.
There is a trick available called Psypher which allows you to produce a very similar effect. With Pshpher you can ask someone to draw something and know exactly what it is they have drawn without them having a clue how you know.
It is an impression device which comes with a DVD containing the instructions for several routines. Its a perfect trick for parties or street performance.
Lottery Numbers Prediction
People are fascinated with predicting the lottery. Both Derren Brown and Dynamo have performed lottery based tricks. There is a great lottery prediction that many mentalists swear by and can easily be picked up by a beginner.
Its called Powerball 60. Powerball 60 is a magic prop that doesn’t look like a magic prop and allows you to accurately predict which number between 1-60 a spectator has chosen. You can use it on several people at once and versions are available for the US, UK and Canada.
Bicycle Playing Cards
Bicycle cards are the standard playing cards for magicians worldwide. Most tricks are sold to work with these cards, they are easy to manipulate and long lasting. Click the image below to purchase from the UK (or below that for the US).
To perform levitations you need thread. This flesh tone invisible thread is twice as strong as regular magicians’ thread.
Here is the standard thread which is slightly cheaper (click below).
Available in skin colour, white or black. Combined with invisible thread you can produce some amazing effects!
