Magia Negra (Black Magic)
October month brings such a myriad of feelings and in the same case could be said in musical tastes. In the spirit of all things dark here is a song called "Black Magic feat. Rebolledo" by an amazing outfit that I recently discovered called Superpitcher. This a fairly recent release from their full length LP Kilimanjaro. Superpitcher is the stage name of German producer Aksel Schaufler who is affiliated with Cologne's Kompakt music label. Superpitcher made his firs appearance in 2000 with the song "Shadows". In 2001, he contributed a track called "Tomorrow", "Heroin" and a cover of Brian Eno's "Baby's On Fire". Also, Superpitcher and Michael Mayer have collaborated under the pseudonym Supermayer and did a brilliant remix of Rufus Wainwright's "Tiergarden" that I highly recommend to give it a listen . Black Magic comes from Kilimanjaro, the latest offering by this amazing young producer who is very well in touch with the origins of cosmic disco, 80's electronic and early tech house. The entire album is engaging from start to finish. This song is one of my favorites. Enjoy!
