"Born in Poland and raised in Detroit, MAGDA has soaked up the various characteristics of her surroundings, resulting in a widely-cultured
perspective, tuned to see beauty and potential in the most derelict and depressed of places. As a teenager partying in Detroit, it wasn't long until Magda was fully immersed in the city's underground scene. In 1998, she was dropped straight into the deep end; she joined Minus and began touring the world as Richie Hawtin's opening DJ. She was initially defined as a DJ under the Minus umbrella, but since has forged her own path.
Magda's touring schedule is amongst the most high-profile and demanding around, with regular bookings at many of the world's very best house/techno clubs and festivals. She's proved herself as a consistent, adventurous and top-quality performer, with a knack for bringing tracks together in unexpected ways. As well as notable accolades such as a BBC 1 Essential Mix and playing at Timewarp's live streamed 20th anniversary, Magda has been behind some stand-out commercial mixes. 'She's A Dancing Machine', released in 2006 through Hawtin's label, was truly seminal. It intricately layered 70 tracks into 16 sections and displayed an almost unprecedented level of energy for a minimal DJ mix. She was later invited to record a mix for Fabric esteemed CD series, and adopted a similar patchwork approach to brilliant effect. Her latest, two-disc mix compilation, out through the Balance series, gives equal measure to the experimental and club-focused aspects of her DJing, taking the listener on a thrillingly unpredictable listen. www.facebook.com/unmagda

Konna easily translates his selection of tracks into a coherent entity, each record has its own part in the jigsaw of sound. During his college days in Antwerp, the Limburg born DJ started his own clubnight Nocturne at the fresh but already reputable club Ampere. Later he also founded Helder, a concept that brings quality music to the most special places in the city. Nothing is impossible during a trip with Konna through his wide ranging musical selection. From eyes closed Techno and pitched down Trance classics till sunshine House and smiling Disco cuts. Welcome to a never-ending expedition into the world of Konna and his passion for music.
