Minimal techno's first lady named her debut mix CD 'She's A Dancing Machine', but this year she earned the title 'she's a touring machine'. Over the past 12 months, Richie Hawtin's former support DJ has become one of the most in-demand techno spinners in the world, following a grueling schedule that's seen her perform at the Sonar festival in Spain, Detroit's DEMF, the brilliant yet underrated Sonne, Mond und Sterne festival in Eastern Germany and slots at Sven Väth's Cocoon in Frankfurt and Ibiza. She's also played at Hawtin's series of Contakt events all over Europe, which served to consolidate the Minus family's image as a tight group of black-clad cyber-warriors - or just people who don't take the techno image too seriously. Magda has also reactivated the Items & Things label she runs with Troy Pierce and Marc Houle. Keen to support new talent, its latest release was 'Espaco E Tempo' by Brazilian duo Click Box. It'll be followed by a new EP over the coming months, but Magda says: "The contracts aren't signed so I don't want to say who it is in case it doesn't work out, you know?" Magda also assures DJmag that she'll be releasing new material of her own soon. "I'm working on finishing my debut album for next year and I'm also gonna have a single in December on Minus, but I've been touring like crazy so it's hard to get everything finished," she admits. "I'm also doing a South American tour in December/January," she adds.
