On the Record: DJ Minx

The purpose of On The Record: Detroit Moves, a project of Women On Wax, is to preserve the history of Detroit’s electronic music scene for future generations. The goal is to create a free and easily accessible platform of information that tells the stories of our music from the people who made it. It is meant to become a tool for both Detroiters and non-Detroiters to familiarize themselves with the DJs, producers, pioneers, musicians, promoters, clubs, photographers, and of course, the dancers, who created, nurtured, and lived House and Techno music in the City of Detroit.

Summer, Summer, Summertime

It’s Summer, and the WOW family has been hard at work to make sure you werq. Since Movement, Minx has played in Brooklyn, San Francisco, Seattle, Atlanta, and of course Detroit, and she’s getting ready to travel overseas to France and Germany later on this month. In June, Women On Wax Recordings released some new deepness,…

WOW and MAW

This Saturday, December 16, Minx will be joining Kenny Dope at Output. To say that the extended WOW family is proud does not do what we are feeling right now justice. Seeing the name of one of the most talented, hustling, and humble women play alongside one half of Masters At Work is indescribable. We…

Minx Does Movement

It’s that time again. The time of year when old friends reconnect on the dance floor, when new friends find one another through shared rhythm, when Detroit welcomes the world to see what it’s really all about. And of course, Minx will be there to provide some beats. So show her and her city some…

Remembering Frankie (Always)

It’s been nearly three years since we lost Frankie Knuckles. The WOW family has listened to his last-ever recorded set a lot lately, but the lyrics of “I Wonder (Original)” by Soulmagic still get us every single time: “I wonder Will I still be here when you’re gone? Will the people still be spinning our song?”…

Peace, 2016

What a rough year for our community. We mourned the losses at Pulse Nightclub and the Oakland Ghost Ship warehouse. Those are our fellow dancers. We mourned the loss of David Bowie, Prince, and David Mancuso, among others. Those are the people who made us dance together. We also caught our collective breath when the…

Family First

Let’s talk about family. These past few weeks have been rough for the Women On Wax family as we all felt the loss that one of our own is experiencing. The departure of anyone, whether expected or not, is difficult, and this year has especially been hard. It seems we’ve all lost family members, friends,…

Queen Beats

Over a month ago, Minx started up her weekly radio show again, this time through Deep Space Radio (if you don’t know yet, you should) as a featured artist. Every Tuesday, at 6 pm EST, she’s live in the chatroom and making you work out during your drive home, your dinnertime, your grocery shopping—whatever you’ve…

Movement Reflections

  It’s been more than two weeks. Most of us should be recovered by now, so let’s take a moment to reflect. Movement is always a time of music and dancing, but it’s also about friends, family, love, community, history, and above all, home and a sense of belonging. Expat Detroiters return to their roots,…

I See You San Francisco!

Next month, I’ll be heading to the west side (California, that is) to play alongside some of my favorites. The lineup is not only regional (San Francisco, Detroit, Chicago) but global (Berlin), and you know we’ll work it out! Honey Soundsystem always brings it (and then some), so make sure you buy your tickets early.…
