DJ Minx

DJ MINX

DJ Minx was inspired to spin by the famed Music Institute in Detroit. Her style is described as funky, powerful house, with a splash of grace. For two years, Minx engineered and hosted “Deep Space Radio,” an electronic music show on Detroit’s WGPR radio station, on which she conducted interviews and played mixes by DJs and Producers from around the world. The show was heralded by the innovators of techno music (“Magic” Juan Atkins, Kevin “Reese” Saunderson, Eddie Fowlkes, and Derrick May). Minx also voluntarily did a weekly radio program at the University of Canada on CJAM 91.5 FM called “Steamy Windows,” which featured house music by local and international artists.

As a resident of world-renowned Club Motor, Minx opened for artists such as Basement Jaxx, Doc Martin, Cajmere, and Afrika Bambatta. In December 1996, Minx founded Women on Wax, a collective of female DJs from the Metro Detroit area. From then on, she began working with promoters and DJs across the country, and helped to solidify the career of several top female DJs and songstresses.

Being a featured performer during the first Detroit Electronic Music Festival (D.E.M.F.) in May 2000 had an incredible impact on Minx’s career. Since then, she’s played at Tresor in Berlin, Output in New York, Toronto’s Film Lounge, Club Ohm in Portland, Deep Sugar in Baltimore, and Club Air in Japan, and for with massive crowds in Paris, Cancun, Switzerland, Spain, Belgium and numerous other domestic and international locales.

In 2001, Minx established her own record label called Women On Wax Recordings, which has served as a vehicle to present many talented artists and producers to the world including Diamondancer, Pirahnahead, and Diviniti. Minx has also expanded her musical majesty by creating a sub-imprint of the label called W.O.W. B.A.M. (Women On Wax Bangin’ Ass Music). Besides releases on her own labels, she has produced and remixed tracks for Minus (Berlin), Trisomie 21 (Paris), Soiree Records (Detroit), West End Records (New York), Code Red (Baltimore), United Music (Paris), Whasdat Music (Detroit), Liberate (Chicago), and Fast Forward (Atlanta), among others.

Currently on the Connect Bookings roster, Detroit’s “First Lady of Wax” is going strong after nearly three decades of DJing. Minx recently moved her “Queen Beats Radio” weekly show to the new deepspaceradio, and she continues to host parties, specifically during Movement in Detroit. She was named one of the "20 Women Who Shaped the History of Dance Music" by Mixmag and one of the "Best house music DJs of all time" by TimeOut New York.

One can only imagine what other paths Minx will explore in the years to come.

“Techno is her bread and butter - the rich, melodic, and complex kind that comes from Detroit, Berlin, London, and The Hague. She has a real knack for building sets of intelligent, forward-thinking techno that never lose sight of the dance floor, taking the crowd on a journey while she makes them dance.” - Chris Zaldua, Best of the Bay, SF Weekly
