Magda's diverse tastes are reflected in her DJ sets, which can include everything from coldwave to cosmic disco to post-punk to electronic pop - but the genre that she's probably most recognised is minimal.
Born Magdalena Chojnacka in Poland, Magda was raised in Detroit and became immersed in the city's underground scenes during the 1990s, as the minimal house and techno movements were kicking off. By 1998, she was touring the world with Richie Hawtin, and has since held a tight relationship with his M_Nus label, putting out the seminal, edit-heavy mix album 'She's A Dancing Machine' through the imprint, as well as her debut album 'From The Fallen Page' - a rare release, as Magda is a DJ first and a producer second. Now one of the most renowned DJs on the scene, Magda can boast a Fabric mix under her belt as well as her own curatorial platform, the Items & Things label.
Magda has contributed to our '10 best' series, selecting a topic she is quite familiar with - minimal house.
Magda: "Dan Bell’s tracks have inspired me since the early '90s. I love the simplicity and the space each sound has for itself, and how well they compliment each other."
Magda: "I love the way Bruno works with vocals and bends genres. The sounds are refined and all come together to make a dark but very funky track."
