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.
“As her moniker implies, she takes no prisoners, channelling the fury instilled by worldly injustices into blistering, defiant sets.” – Mixmag 2017
Raised in small town Indiana on a musical diet of 80s synth pop and punk rock, Noncompliant soon found barnyard raves and warehouse techno parties and (as DJ Shiva) quickly became a fixture of the fabled 90s Midwest USA rave scene.
Two decades and a name change later, she is at the top of her techno game. Mixmag named her one of 2017’s Top 20 Breakthrough DJs. She owned a packed and sweaty Boiler Room during Movement Detroit, turned in mindblowing mixes for Slam Radio, Discwoman, and Resident Advisor, and quaked some of the world’s most respected dancefloors like Smartbar Chicago, Amsterdam’s DeSchool, Concrete in Paris, and Berlin’s legendary Berghain.
As a producer, her releases and remixes on labels like Valence, Argot, Flash, and Dark Entries have pounded sound systems worldwide, with her tune “Women’s Work” landing on Fiedel’s official Berghain 08 mix and on his label Fiedeltwo.
