Paktofonika was a Polish hip-hop group from Katowice and Mikołów that formed in 1998. They debuted with the album Kinematografia in 2000.
Paktofonika was founded shortly after 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.
In the spring of 2000 the group were signed with Gigant Records. That same year, on December 18, they released their debut album Kinematografia. Eight days after the album was released, Magik committed suicide by jumping from the ninth floor of his apartment. After his death, the group continued giving concerts for some time, using pre-recorded material for Magik's vocals.
In September 2002, the group's sophomore album was released. Archiwum Kinematografii contains studio out-takes from the first album, and songs recorded later without Magik. In 2003 the group announced the end of Paktofonika.
Rahim and Fokus continue to work on other projects, like PFK Kompany and Pokahontaz.
