(Dazed & Confused / Systematic Recordings / Sun Recordings)
Kim Pixa is a legendary producer, dj pioneer, director, poet, and owner of Sun Recordings and well respected iconic international artist from Czech Republic. He focuses mainly on electronic music. He grew up in the Old Town of Prague in the artistic family of famous musicians and filmmakers, which had a great impact on his musical career. He has worked with countless music production programs, started with Fasttracker in 1994, followed by Fruity Loops, Cubase, Nuendo, Catwalk and Ableton. His first debut album was released in 1997 on CD, and his memoir re-editions is being prepared. The DJ’s carrier began in 1994, and in 1997 he succeeded in acquiring his first turntables Technics 1210 via Westbam and Africa of Islam and began playing vinyls.
A big upswing followed when he became a member of U Bukanýra Club and helped build it from the scratch in the very beginning. Kim’s first manager became his long-time friend and production club Lukáš Chocholouš. In 2003, LIVE performed with singer and actress Tereza Nekudova (then Skyline).
Then came the year 2004, when he met DJ Wega. From the Wega and Kim pseudonyms was formed the name WeKi or also WeKi DJs.
Together they gained many fans across the Czech Republic and built strong resident nights in clubs such as Roxy, Bukanyra, Chapeau Rouge, Old XT3, Palac Akropolis, Mecca, Café Amsterdam, etc. for many years. WeKi brought to the Czech Republic as the first – the German electro and minimal electro sound, this style became the main wave of electronic music after that and due to the great popularity they were given the residence of Elektra in Roxy. In 2006 found the boys the visionary Aleš Bleha and offered them managerial services. They played at all major festivals and major stages of legendary festivals such as Summer of Love, Rock for People, Sazava Fest, Planet Love, Cosmic Trip, O2, Philip Morris stages, Coca Cola stages with artists like Kraftwerk, Hell, Chris Liebing, Vitalic, Miss Kitin, Electrochemie, Kosheen, etc.
Weki are the producers of an anthem for Summer of Love 2007 “WeKi – Open Your Mind” which was downloaded in just over 10000 unique users a week. For the second anthem of Summer of Love 2008 “WeKi – Close To Your Heart”, Weki were looking for a singer. That time Aleš Bleha offered them Fidelity Kastrow. In the same week contacted them manager of Fidelity Mr. Mark Reeder (MFS) who wanted to buy the copyrights. The offer on their part was for free and did not take into account their long-term work on the track. When Weki stood behind their work not to sell the hymn, Mark Reeder decided to bypass the boys and made his own copy with Fidelity Kastrow and Jonty Scrufff . This turned into a big problem because the anthem was already registered under OSA (Czech Gema, Ascap) and by the czech law you can not sell the rights. Aleš Bleha pushed the boys to sell the hymn without sucess and this ended up their relationship. This was a big scandal, which was the most reeded article of the year on the Poslouchej.net server. Thousends of fans stayed behind WeKi.
The first WeKi EP was called “WeKi – Closer To Me,” with the vocalist Ronnica (Veronika Maskova) and the baptist support came from Azad Rizvi. The entire EP was released as the first record and vinyl on the starting record company Beef Records in 2005. This EP reached the Beatport Tech-house Top 50.
WeKi helped launch also the Beef Records label to Michal Schwa, where they released several EPs, including two successful remixes for Deepchild. Together they promoted the Beef Records brand in the Czech Republic and DJ Schwa replenished them on their resident nights.
In 2007, David DKP (Kieslowski, Xavier Baumaxa, Houpaci Kone) joined Wega and Kim, singing their biggest hits “Women on the Seafloor” and “Eyes of Tutanchamon” and “Burning Lisbon.” This album called “Evil Kiss” also hosted rapper Dub-U. In 2009 they celebrated with the very popular track “Golem” and remix from Oliver Klein & Peter Jürgens (Kling Klong). The Spanish company Ecler offered WeKi collaboration with the help of Aiffel Records, and gave them their super LIVE mixer EVO 5, which worked as a timeless controller
(they made live music on the spot – check Weki TV Ocko).
The WeKi LIVE Tour was also heard in TV Óčko and the last performance was 2010 at the O2 Telefónica Open Air Festival. Afterwards WeKi decided to split up.
Today DJ Wega is a college professor.
