Magda

As Plastikman's protegé, Magda's duties include warming up the planet's Plastikheads by crafting wicked tracks for the reigning king of techno's vanity label, m-nus. Making her name in Motor City, America's techno capital, and hooking up with the all-goddess disc-jockey collective Women on Wax brought Magda to Richie Hawtin's attention. But her appearance at the inaugural Detroit Electronic Music Festival seemed to secure her place in the Plastik universe. Hawtin first offered Magda an opening slot for his millennium bash, Epok, in Prince's favorite year: 1999. Since then, she has appeared on Control, DE9, Jak and From Our Minds to Yours, Plus 8's decade anniversary disc. Following a stint at New York's Gel & Weave with Dinky, Magda migrated to the planet's other techno capital -- Berlin, Germany -- to squat within spitting distance of her guru. Brace yourself to be bombarded by the banging beats on Magda's laptop hard drive, because the queen of bleeps is coming to throw down in a mile-high basement near you.
