Some Magda Live Sets

I can't claim to be too much of an expert on Magda, except to say that her dj sets themselves are expert, and that she is something of a Batgirl to Richie Hawtin's Batman. Like Hawtin, she's a progenitor of the minimal techno and glitch tone sound that defines areas like Berlin and Detroit. Venturing far beyond the tired realms of 4-on-the-floor digre, it's rather a symphony of millions of atoms quietly splitting.

From the website 'Women of Techno':
Comparable to many North American cities, Magda's primary place of influence, Detroit, has been experiencing a lull where once there was a booming scene and lucrative market for techno music and events. "As far as techno, I think it's not good right now. It's just hard to keep things consistent and keep people excited and going out. I feel like there?s a big gap? I think we were the last ones to come out of the experience of a community in Detroit that was excited and I think after that was the whole mainstream rave culture blow up and that was completely separate from us in a way. So there was no mentoring system that continued. Now that has died, so people are trying to create new things and see what's going on."
