The Black Madonna brings We Still Believe to WHP18 for the first time this season and Jayda G is one of the many artists, alongside Motor City Drum Ensemble, Honey Dijon and Octo Octa (live) who will be joining her for one of the final Store Street parties.
Canadian born Jayda G resides between Vancouver and Berlin. She is one half of the record label Freakout Cult with DJ Fett Burger, which began life as a series of parties in her home country. Her first release was put out by the Australian label Butter Sessions, but has subsequently released her music through her own label.
It is Jayda’s positive outlook that shines through both on and off the decks. Beaming from behind the turntables whenever she plays, the music that she selects reflects this bright demeanour.
Her sets are known for being peppered with old classics, some of which come as a surprise, but never feel out of place, such as Paul Lewis - Inner City Blues. She has also been known to sing along to tracks whilst behind the decks, something which has led to her now using her own vocals as samples for her songs.
But it is not just DJing that she is passionate about; she is also an environmental toxicologist (a subject which she has a masters in) studying the effects that chemicals in the water of her native Vancouver are having on killer whales. This has bled in to her work as a DJ also; her 2016 release Sound of Fuca is in reference to the Juan de Fuca Strait, where Jayda does her environmental work.
This show has now sold out. No further tickets will be released
