DJ Minx (US)

Artist & Speaker (DJ)

One of Detroit’s most beloved figures in house and techno, DJ Minx’s reign as Detroit’s First Lady of Wax has lasted more than three decades. Despite her longevity and integral role in Detroit, only recently has she started to receive the widespread international recognition that her talent and contribution deserve. In 2023, DJ Minx has ascended to dance music royalty with more international bookings than ever before with appearances set for staple Ibiza club Hï Ibiza, Barcelona’s Sonar Festival, Berlin’s storied Panorama bar, Defected Festival in Croatia, and more. This ascension coincides with her new The Throne EP via Higher Ground, where DJ Minx shows she’s truly hitting her sonic stride, describing the release as “the best musical feelings I’ve had in a long time.” Minx has been a central figure in Detroit's dance music history, learning to DJ in the late 80s, then holding a vital residency at Motor Club, and hosting long-running radio shows in the city for WGPR and CJAM. She’s been a fixture at Detroit’s Movement Festival since 2000, and after last year’s success, has been again invited back to host her own stage this year. Her Women on Wax collective and label have sought to champion Black female artists since its inception in 1996. She is a recipient of the Spirit of Detroit Award for her contributions to the city's cultural landscape.
