Italian label based in Genova founded by Vittorio and Aldo De Scalzi in 1973 under Ed. Elettra and Genova, currently under Tutte Cose Goa sas and Genova Ed.
Magma was closely tied to the Studio G recording studio, also owned by the De Scalzi brothers.

Some prog LPs and pop-rock singles were released, as well as the SMAG series, which comprises at least seven library records.

The track "Multistrato" from SMAG 02 is present on the LP "Picchio dal Pozzo" while SMAG 03 was also published on Grog under the title "Rendez Vous".
All tracks from SMAG 04 were released as singles on the Idea and Grog labels, apart from the long track "Pavana" included in the "Aquile e Scoiattoli" LP by Latte e Miele.
