Canadian by birth and now Berlin-based, Jayda G has risen steadily and stealthily through the dance music underground with her infectious energy, vitality and boundless enthusiasm. She released her debut album "Significant Changes" on Ninja Tune in March 2019.
Her debut LP is a blend of vintage drum machine funk drawing heavily on Chicago's house blueprint - a natural progression following a string of EPs both solo and alongside friend DJ Fett Burger on their jointly run (until 2018) Freakout Cult label, alongside releases on 1080p and Swedish label Geography Records, including 2018’s standout single “Diva Bitch”. She also recently remixed Little Dragon’s track 'Lover Chanting’.
Renowned for her high-energy performances as a DJ - Jayda G has played all over the world including a renowned Boiler Room set at Dekmantel in 2017 and many 2018 festivals including Field Day, Melt!, Night + Day Bilbao plus nights for Rhythm Section, The Hydra, Warehouse Project and many more.
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 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 is a demonstration of how inextricably linked her work in science is with her music.
