Magda -- the Polish-born, US-raised, Berlin-residing DJ -- is techno's sweetheart.

Tapped for the top by techno titan Richie Hawtin, she now headlines clubs and festivals across six continents. It's for good party-moving reason too. She brings it.

On Sunday, at the world-famous rooftop of Downtown LA's The Standard hotel, Magda spins alongside M_NUS labelmate Troy Pierce. Joining them for the 1 p.m. - 10 p.m. shindig are Droog (Justin Sloe, Brett Griffin and Andrei Osyka,) Kenneth J. Gibson, and Clovis.
