DJ, label manager and club impresario Madam X has proven to be one of the UK’s leading underground DJs.
From co-founding label and Manchester Clubnight BPM in 2011, to launching her own label KAIZEN, in the summer of 2014 – her reputation has seen her tour across America, Australia, Asia and beyond, representing the darker sounds of UK bass-driven techno.
Credited by Mixmag as one of the “Top labels of 2016,” her work with KAIZEN as a clubnight and imprint has armed her with the hands-on experience of releasing records independently whilst also keeping her ear firmly to the ground.
With releases from Biome, Walton and Silas & Snare, and support from Mall Grab, Loefah, and Hodge to name a few, KAIZEN has proven to be one of the most talked-about labels in left-field bass music.
With the soundsystem pressure of dubstep, the propulsion of techno and a fearless attitude, Madam X’s accomplishments admittedly feel like only the tip of the iceberg. With recent stints presenting Channel 4’s award-winning music show ‘Four to the Floor’, and Radio 1 & NTS residencies under her belt, she continues to build on past successes, clearly set on leaving her mark on UK dance music in a big way
