Ukranian DJ-producer Vakula has faced heavy criticism for the artwork of his 'Per Aspera Ad Astra' EP, which depicts four former Mixmag cover stars - The Black Madonna, Nastia, Peggy Gou and Nina Kraviz - operating a phallic spaceship. The EP was released on the Croatian label Barba Records under the producer's Mikhaylo Vityk's Rocco Siffredi alias, named after a controversial porn star who is known for brutal depictions of rough sex in his work and once famously said "what you call violence, I call pain with pleasure". The release's illustration shows the four DJs with wires attached to their heads while riding the phallic spaceship. When sharing the artwork, Vakula wrote on Instagram: "I dedicated this project to my beloved women, where we tried to portray the most beautiful dick that those girls on the cover could ever meet." Vakula made his Instagram private following the post. He announced the EP on March 1 and word of the artwork spread slowly through the various clubland channels before reaching two of the DJs depicted in the illustration. None of the artists depicted were contacted for approval for the usage of their likeness. The Black Madonna took to Twitter today to express her absolute disdain for the stunt.
