About Paktofonika
Paktofonika was a Polish hip hop group from Katowice and Mikolow, which debuted with the album Kinematografia in 2000. The name Paktofonika comes from the words pakt (pact) and fonika (fonics), from which derives the idea of "A pact made alongside noise from a speaker", created by band's founders, Magik and Rahim.Paktofonika began when Magik left Kaliber 44 during the recording of their second album, W 63 minuty dookoła świata. Rahim left his group 3xKlan at around the same time, and formed Paktofonika with Magik and Fokus in 1998. Their first songs were written in October of that year, being Priorytety, Ja to Ja, and Gdyby. Two new members joined Paktofonika, DJ Bambus on turntables, and Sot as a beatboxer. In the spring of 2000 the group signed a contract with Gigant Records. In the summer of that year, the group was in Witten (Germany) where they recorded their song 2 Kilo with German artists. That year, on December 18, their first album entitled Kinematografia was released. Eight days after the CD was released, December 26, at 6:15, Magik committed suicide by jumping from the ninth floor of his apartment. After his death, the group continued concerts for some time, using pre-recorded material for Magik's vocals. After a while, Fokus and Rahim dissolved the group to pursue other projects. In the year 2001, a sample of Ja to Ja which was sung by Piotr 'Gutek' Gutkowski was used in an ice cream commercial without the group members' agreement, but with the knowledge of Gigant Records. In September 2002, the farewell album was released. Archiwum Kinematografii contains studio outtakes from of the first album, and 2 songs recorded later without Magik (JaToJa 2(Dokuadnie tak! and W peunej gotowości). A few months later, in the Spring of 2003 the group announced the end of Paktofonika. Rahim and Fokus continue to work in other projects, such as PFK Kompany and Pokahontaz.
