Funkagenda and Magda Both Spin at Space This Saturday

After a blowout weekend celebrating its 10-year anniversary, this Saturday Club Space presents a serious bill of out-of-town stars that should keep the lines at the door as long as ever. In the main room is London-based favorite Funkagenda, which hits Miami in just one of a handful of U.S. dates on an extensive global tour. A star of the Toolroom Knights stable, the producer has a sound that dovetails with that of his label.

He specializes in upbeat, driving main-room beats that flirt a little with tribal, a little with electro, a little with techy-sounds, but always come back to a solid, steady thump. It's ironic that one of Funkagenda's biggest current hits is a track called "Nobody Listens to Techno," considering the talent booked the same night in the club's Techno Loft.

Headlining there is the great, single-named Magda, the female arm of the

holy trinity of minimal techno (completed, of course, by Richie Hawtin

and Ricardo Villalobos). Born in Poland, she earned her techno chops in

Detroit, and now helps rule the global scene -- and Hawtin-founded

MINUS Records -- from Berlin. Her signature sound is, of course,

stripped-down, but steeped in enough of the Detroit funky, disco-ey

swing to keep a dance floor pulsing.

11 p.m. Saturday, May 29. Space, 34 NE 11th St., Miami. Tickets cost

$20 for entry before midnight, $30 for entry before 2 .a.m., in advance from Ages 21 and up; 305-372-9378;
