Jayda G “Significant Changes Remixes” (Ninja Tune)

2019-08-16T03:43:05+00:00August 16th, 2019|

Announced today alongside a thumping remix from Honey Dijon, who takes on Jayda’s light-hearted ode to the dancefloor – ‘Stanley’s Get Down (No Parking on the DF)’ – with Jayda’s tongue-in-cheek scorn “Hey you! I see you, with your phone, looking at Instagram” admonishing those people who stand motionless in the front row at her gigs: “This is the dancefloor baby, this is where you’re supposed to get down”. Talking about the remix, Dijon says “It was so much fun remixing an artist who has a clear understanding and respect for the foundation of dance music heritage and culture.”

The EP is completed by Dâm-Funk’s “Re-Freak” of ‘Move To The Front’ and a remix from DJ Fett Burger of ‘Missy Knows What’s Up’. All three tracks plus a Honey Dijon instrumental will be released on 19th July on 12”/Digital.

Jayda G’s debut album “Significant Changes” was met with praise from the likes of The Guardian – who have already proclaimed it one of their top albums of 2019 to date, Mixmag – who made Jayda their April ‘cover star’, and publications such as Pitchfork, Dazed, Crack, NME and many more. Known for her prolific, high-energy performances as a DJ, she followed up an Essential Mix on BBC Radio 1 with a stint on the R1 Residency, and has toured relentlessly throughout 2019, taking in shows across 12 countries including performances at Primavera Sound, Kala and Lente Kabinet (Dekmantel’s sister event), with shows still to come at this year’s Glastonbury, Lovebox and Dimensions festivals. She returns for a run of North American shows in June & July including Brooklyn Mirage on 28th June and El Cid in Los Angeles on 6th July.

Jayda G “Significant Changes” (Ninja Tune)

Jayda G will release her debut album “Significant Changes” via Ninja Tune. Musically it’s a blend of vintage drum machine funk drawing heavily on Chicago’s house blueprint – as evidenced by new single ‘Leave Room 2 Breathe’ featuring vocals by life-long friend and frequent collaborator Alexa Dash.

The album is a natural progression from a string of EPs both solo and alongside her friend and mentor DJ Fett Burger (Sex Tags Mania), often appearing on the Freakout Cult label the two ran jointly until 2018 and most recently her newly minted JMG Recordings imprint. Also renowned for her high-energy performances as a DJ, the past 12 months have seen Jayda play London’s formidable Printworks venue alongside the likes of Marcellus Pittman, Moodymann and Omar-S; be invited by The Black Madonna to play at her Warehouse Project takeover; and perform at festivals like Field Day, Kala, Melt!, AVA and the xx’s Night And Day.

Growing up some 6 hours outside Vancouver surrounded by an abundance of nature sparked an early interest in biology and the natural world, a passion that has endured and intensified to this day and is inextricably intertwined with her musical output. In 2018 she completed her Masters in Resource and Environmental Management specialising in environmental toxicology, wherein she investigated the effects of human activity on the Salish Sea killer whales (orcas) of Vancouver, in her native British Columbia. It was also the year that she finished recording her debut album as Jayda G: “Significant Changes”. The title of the album was the most used phrase in her final thesis and exemplifies how intertwined her work in science is with her work in music. “I’m trying to bring my two worlds together… to bridge the communication gap, engage people in a new way”, she explains. “I don’t know if people in the electronic music world will want to talk about the environment but I think I should try! I think it’s our duty to use a platform like this in a positive way, that’s our social responsibility.”

Jayda G “Sixth Spirit of the Bay” (1080p)

2017-01-21T01:25:42+00:00January 21st, 2017|

Lighthearted and aqua-marine house grooves from Canadian producer Jayda G with a fun 12” comprised of two originals and two reworkings of the track “Girl Music” from Montreal duo Cafe Lanai.

Created during the spring/summertime of 2016, Sixth Spirit is infused with a sense of warmth and carefreeness based on current experiences, looped back into nostalgias of her first field season as a young scientist in Ontario.

The Canadian forests breathe through these songs. The movement and groove emulate the sense of curiosity and learning that she experienced during that earlier time. “That field season was an adventure I’ll never forget.”
