About this Event

Based in Berlin yet deeply rooted in Detroit, Magda is a minimal techno DJ/producer closely affiliated with and his M_nus collective. Born Magdalena Chojnacka in Zywiec, Poland, she moved with her family to the United States at age nine, first settling in Texas. Her family then moved in 1986 to Detroit, more specifically the Polish enclave of Hamtramck, a city within the city. Initially interested in guitar-based alternative rock music such as and , Magda got deeply into the storied Detroit techno scene around 1994 after attending 's Spastik party at the famed Packard Plant complex, a key turning point for her musically. She began spinning records around this same time, and in 1996 she began performing as a DJ, notably joining Detroit's Women on Wax collective. Her style of music evolved during these years, moving from acid techno and electro to house and, ultimately, minimal techno. The move to minimal techno occurred roughly around the same time she became affiliated with , who awarded her a weekly residency at his Windsor club, 13 Below, during the late '90s.

Magda's affiliation with continued to grow closer, particularly once she began opening for him at his DJ performances; for instance, she was the opening DJ at his New Year's Eve party in 1999 at the Motor club in Hamtramck. As the techno scene in Detroit went downhill at the turn of the century -- for various reasons, among them law enforcement as well as the trance boom -- Magda left for New York City, where she lived for only a year before moving once again, this time to Berlin in 2003. soon followed, and the M_nus collective was essentially relocated from Detroit-Windsor to Berlin, where the market for minimal techno was much larger and freer than in the United States.

Well established as a globetrotting DJ by this point in the mid-2000s, Magda began releasing production work as well, beginning with the Stop (2005) 12" EP on M_nus. Also in 2005, her track "The Black Room" was compiled on the M_nus various-artists sampler Minimize to Maximize. In 2006 she released the full-length DJ mix She's a Dancing Machine on M_nus; also that year, her track "Staring Contest" was compiled on min2MAX while "Black Leather Wonder" was included on the Spaceships & Pings various-artists 12" EP released by Items & Things, a label she co-founded with M_nus colleagues and . Her production work continued to trickle out slowly in subsequent years, as for instance her track "48 Hour Crack in Your Bass" was compiled on the M_nus various-artists sampler Nothing Much (A Best of Minus) + Something More.
