There can be no doubt that Canadian artists Jayda G is having a moment right now. Her debut album Significant Changes dropped on March 22 on Ninja Tune, hot on the heels of a packed-out February residency at London’s Phonox; the launch of her science-based interview series “JMG Talks”; a BBC Essential Mix packed with soul, classic disco and house; and confirmation that she will join the BBC R1 Residency this month.
The new single ‘Move to the Front (Disco Mix)’ features Jayda herself on vocal duties and draws directly on her experiences as a DJ.
“Sometimes I’ll be playing and I’ll have a row of guys just standing there, not dancing, just staring… and in the distance, I can see all the women who are dancing their asses off, and I wish I could just telepathically tell them ‘Move to the front’,” says Jayda. “Those are the people I’m playing for.”
Hey there! I’m Zach I love long walks on the beach and movies that make you cry. Wait a minute this isn’t my E-Harmony account. Let’s try this again, hi I’m Zach from Dawson Creek, BC. Before you think it, no it’s not like the TV show! I have loved music ever since I was a kid back in Abbotsford, BC where I was born. Moved up north when I was about six and was practically raised up here. Hands down one of my favorite Canadian band has to be Simple Plan, with Dallas Smith coming in second. One of my Favorite Things I enjoy doing is just sitting around listening to music or taking pictures. I’d say I’m a pretty good photographer but you can be the judge of that. Just even ask a couple of my friends City light vigil, Scarlet serenity or Violet night. If you’re still reading this congratulations you’ve reached the end.
