Madam X heads up our Mix of the Week via Movement Radio show. DJ, label head and club impresario Madam X has proved she has many strings to her bow. A constant and moreover, crucial, fixture in Manchester’s underground clubbing scene, her intimate knowledge of the city – both as a scene and a place brimming with..DJ, label head and club impresario Madam X has proved she has many strings to her bow.
Equally adept at playing to huge crowds as she is 100-cap basements, as well as hosting her own shows on BBC Radio 1, Rinse FM and NTS hosting guests like Mall Grab, Lauren Flax, Darwin & more, her multi-faceted approach to music feels unique and ultimately, special. The proud head of her own label, Kaizen, too – an imprint she launched with extensive, free compilation ‘Kaizen Movements Vol.1’ in the summer of 2014 – Madam X is already overseeing the label’s debut release proper, as well as hosting Kaizen label parties across the UK.
With support from DJ Seinfeld, Loefah, Four Tet, Bambounou & more, her work with Kaizen has ultimately fed into her work as a DJ too, ensuring she has kept her ear firmly to the ground, while arming her with the hands-on experience of releasing records independently. Although often understated and keen to let the music do most of her talking, she continues to build on past successes – for every gig she plays.
