Whether spinning bashment tunes in the sun at the pre-party, backstage shenanigans during her Snapchat takeover or an unpredictable musical adventure at the Touching Bass pool party with Redlight and Logan Sama – Madam X certainly got into the festival spirit at this year’s AMP Lost & Found festival.
In the aftermath, whilst party people were packing their suitcases, we caught up with the DJ and label head for one last chill on the balcony to discuss everything from meeting her idols to the Manchester bass music that she lives and breathes….
What were your highlights of Lost & Found?
Obviously playing was sick – I played twice and both times were really fun. It was the first two days of the festival so everyone was partying and feeling really fresh, so I got the most energy out of the crowd. I’ve really enjoyed the hotel times, seeing everyone and seeing people that I haven’t seen for ages. It’s been a really good group of artists and industry people, so it was nice to catch up with everyone.
Musically, Toddla T’s set was insane, that was so much fun, Hudson Mohawke and Mark Ronson was really wicked because those are two of my heroes, so it was cool to see them both together. Oh, and Stormzy obviously! Those were my three set highlights.
I saw during your Snapchat takeover that you ended up meeting HudMo and Mark Ronson, how was that?
It was really cool. I had met HudMo before because we had done one of Benji B’s Deviation parties together, so he was really lovely. I didn’t even know if he’d remember me, but he acted like he did so that was nice! And obviously, Ronson is just a f**king legend in the game. So it’s amazing to be in this kind of environment and meet people who you’ve looked up to for so long, people you think of as heroes. And they were both lovely, really nice people. Both of them are such massive artists in their own respect so it’s really nice to see that they’re not n**head rockstars.
