100% Silk Reissues Tapes by Cherushii and Nackt, Artists Killed in Ghost Ship Fire
L.A.-based record label 100% Silk is issuing memorial editions of two tapes by underground producers Cherushii and Nackt. Both artists—real names Chelsea Faith and Johnny Igaz—were killed in December’s deadly fire at the Ghost Ship warehouse space in Oakland, California, where they were scheduled to perform at a label event.
The tapes, Cherushii’s Memory of Water and Nackt’s Virex, are available to stream on Bandcamp, but their physical editions were previously out of print. Proceeds from the reissues will go to the artists’ families. Earlier this month, Nackt received a posthumous release of his 12″ record Night System from Chicago’s Nite Owl Diner.
