A veritable pillar of Montréal’s underground scene, Icky Magdala finds much appreciation for the soundsystem and vinyl cultures. Having started her career by mixing classic hip-hop and house vinyls, she became inspired by different musical styles, nowadays navigating through the worlds of dub, jungle, drum and bass and acid techno. Over time she became more than a simple vinyl-prone DJ, but a truly versatile artist and producer who solely uses hardware such as the Elektron Analog Four, the Roland SP-404 and the iconic MC-307 to give an experimental feel to her live gigs.

A 10-year veteran of the Montréal scene, both as a solo artist and alongside local music collectives such as Tekon Acid Crew, Pull-Up Selecta, Loop Sessions and Quebec Dream Team (QDT), she has performed at Piknic Électronik, FME, Timeless Festival and Mexico’s Tribunion Festival, along with a plethora of the many weekly events that define the Montréal nightlife. Also the radio host of Bridges to Dub, she continues her lifelong mission to spread good music and good vibes.


Homegrown veteran DJ and producer Icky Magdala prefers to let the music and machines speak for themselves.
