Step inside the house that DJ Minx built with funky, powerful grooves that will keep you jacking long after she leaves the airwaves.

DJ Minx’s roots in Detroit house music run deep. The Motor City’s “First Lady of Wax” counts the city’s foundational Music Institute club as her inspiration for DJing, a skill she’d go on to ply during her residency at Hamtramck’s famed Club Motor, as the host of WGPR’s Deep Space Radio, at the inaugural Detroit Electronic Music Festival in 2000 and later at gigs from Berlin to Tokyo and back. After founding the all-female DJ collective Women On Wax in 1996, she extended the name to her own label in 2001 —
it’s an an outlet both for her own glittering productions (including 2003’s minimalist “A Walk In the Park,” which was later rereleased by Richie Hawtin’s Minus imprint) and those by unsung talent from her hometown.
