Magda – “From The Fallen Page” – [Minus Records]
aka Magdalena Chojnacka, a Polish born Minimal House/Techno DJ who grew up in the US, began DJing in ’96 and ’98 she joined Minus and began touring the world as Richie Hawtin’s sole opener. Magda is also one of the founders of the Berlin based Items & Things label along with Marc Houle and Troy Pierce.
Not only do I embrace Magda as a female electronic musician but love this chick’s sound. Its dark creepy techno with lots of chunky thunks and twisted beats mixed with an eerie horror soundtrack. Her sounds are super quirky and its a twisty maze of cinematic layers. She knows how to use space and bend beats in new ways. The mix of soundscape and beats is just genius. This new genre of unique sounds that some of the M-nus artists are making (Heartthrob etc) is where I hope this music is going.
