|Magda make the tea|
He specializes in upbeat, driving main-room beats that flirt a little with tribal, a little with electro, a little with techy-sounds, but always come back to a solid, steady thump. It's ironic that one of Funkagenda's biggest current hits is a track called "Nobody Listens to Techno," considering the talent booked the same night in the club's Techno Loft.
Headlining there is the great, single-named Magda, the female arm of the holy trinity of minimal techno (completed, of course, by Richie Hawtin and Ricardo Villalobos). Born in Poland, she earned her techno chops in Detroit, and now helps rule the global scene -- and Hawtin-founded MINUS Records -- from Berlin. Her signature sound is, of course, stripped-down, but steeped in enough of the Detroit funky, disco-ey swing to keep a dance floor pulsing.
