White Magik is the new project of Saint Petersburg based DJ and producer Kirill Rem. Kirill is also known as a member of Russian kraut-techno/post-punk band Seven Knives (Ombra INTL), former member of disco collective Sportloto (Compost, Nang) and for his own projects Electrodynamique and Piezo.
Under the new alias, White Magik focuses on a pleasurable cocktail of EBM, new beat, early trance, electro and dark disco and gets the attention in the mixes of Tronik Youth, Future Bones, Roe Deers, K-Effect, Ali X & Ximena, as well as some heavy-weight EBM DJs around the globe. His tracks were remixed by Emile Strunz, Randolph & Mortimer, Brynjolfur, Moisees, Kitschy Kitsch, among others.
In order to have a better understanding about the new release, “Escape The Void” – coming soon on the acclaimed label Nein Records –, we have to revisit White Magik’s first EP: “Total Ego Loss” was the territory full of darkness where our imaginary hero loses his ego after falling in love with a black witch. Now, for the second phase, angels are coming to wake up his soul and help him to escape the void. This is the moment in which dark and light forces are fighting for the soul of our hero. Expect a heavy yet euphoric dance trip from the darkness to the light thru the mind, body and soul.
The track we decided to premiere, the remix made by “El Loco” Kitschy Kitsch, is so energetic that made us imagine a very tense moment in the plot: A stormy battle between good and evil, full of turnarounds and casualties on both fronts. A suitable soundtrack for such a crucial moment in the story. Acid and obscure as hell, Mr. Kitsch’s version will make your imagination flow.
You can find (and buy) this and other music pearls on the Bandcamp page of the label.
