Richard H. Kirk – Mixed by Nik Void

Techno Experimental Post-Punk Industrial

Last month, on 21 September, the music industry was rocked by the unexpected passing of Richard H. Kirk.

The late artist, who broke ground as part of influential post-punk group Cabaret Voltaire and ignited dancefloors through electronic-rooted solo excursions and other releases under a plethora of aliases including (but in no way limited to) Sweet Exorcist, Sandoz and Electronic Eye, was considered by many to be a true musical trailblazer. A singular talent – one that is sorely missed. 

Kirk’s legacy lives on through his music – be it his work with the Cabs or his side endeavours – and the plethora of artists from across the musical spectrum who took inspiration from his sound and experimental ethos.

Following his passing, we spoke to a number of artists, former collaborators, friends and fans about their favourite moments with Kirk and role he played in shaping their careers. Factory Floor and Carter Tutti Void’s Nik Void was one such artist, and here she celebrates Kirk’s life even further with a special tribute mix. 

Speaking on the hour-long offering, Void tells Crack Magazine: “His catalogue is extensive! And I imagine a lot of fans might be disappointed I didn’t get anything from Virtual State or more Warp stuff on there. I kept trying, but I just went with what I was feeling”. 

Void goes on to describe Kirk as “truly an exceptional guy” who was “eccentric but a genius”. RIP.
