Madam X Brackles

Premiere: Madam X b2b Brackles on Rinse FM 14/12/2013

Manchester-via-Milton-Keynes DJ Madam X went back-to-back with Brackles on Rinse FM a few days ago. Maybe it's because it's the festive season, or maybe it's because Brackles was nursing a hangover during the show, but the two DJs played a fairly light and smooth selection of boogie and R&B to open the show. It all kicks off a little later on, working in more upfront selections from Murlo, Champion, and rising star Neana.

It's an absolutely banging selection, although to be honest we shouldn't need to explain that – any mix that manages to include both Hall & Oates' I Can't Go For That and L-Vis 1990's Ballad 4D should get your vote.

There's a tracklist below. The mix starts with a few tracks from Madam X before moving on to a few tracks Brackles, and the tracklist is broken up into convinient chunks to identify who was playing what.
