Musically it’s a blend of vintage drum machine funk drawing heavily on Chicago’s house blueprint - 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. She has also recently remixed Little Dragon. Renowned for her high-energy performances as a DJ, the past 12 months have seen her 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 Berlin’s iconic Panorama Bar, as well as festival appearances at Field Day, Kala, Melt!, AVA and the xx’s Night And Day to name a few. “I’ve gone through some significant changes personally, in terms of growing up into the person that I am, my career just morphing to a place I never dreamed or imagined possible,” explains Jayda. “It’s about me understanding myself as an artist, understanding who that person is, and who I want that person to be, and taking more responsibility for the platform that I’ve been given.” Born and raised in the small town of Grand Forks, British Columbia - some 6 hours outside Vancouver - Jayda Guy grew up surrounded by an abundance of nature on the mountains and in the forests, rivers and lakes. It was this that 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." Moving from Vancouver to Berlin in 2016 to be closer to a growing abundance of European gigs, she shunned the city’s fabled clubbing scene, shutting herself away to work simultaneously on finishing the thesis and album. Musically she draws inspiration from a childhood spent devouring her parents record collection of Soul, Jazz, R&B, Funk and Blues; the roller discos her sister used to drag her to; and the CDs from artists like TLC and D’Angelo that arrived in the post for her older brother. Unsurprisingly though, references to her research are intertwined throughout the record - from the track titles to the field recordings. The intro and outro become the ‘Abstract’ and ‘Conclusion’, as on a scientific paper. The melancholic mood of ‘Orca's Reprise’ is a direct response to the depressing findings of her thesis and features actual recordings of the orcas. Elsewhere, the track ‘Missy Knows What’s Up’ samples the voice of Misty MacDuffee, a biologist with the Raincoast Conservation Foundation, referencing a landmark Canadian court case about the protection of the whales that ultimately led to funding Jayda’s own research and degree. “The track is supposed to be ominous,” she explains. “We need to be holding our governments accountable for things that we believe in”. Not all of the album’s reference points are so sombre. ‘Stanley's Get Down (No Parking on the DF)’ is a light-hearted message to all the people who stand motionless in the front row at her gigs: “I see you, with your phone, looking at Instagram” drawls Jayda in a scathing tone over the intro. “It’s mind blowing to me” she says. “People come to the club to engage, to get outside of your life, so it seems really counterintuitive to me to be stood on your phone!” Continuing that theme is ‘Move to the Front (Disco Mix)’, which 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’! Those are the people I’m playing for.” Elsewhere on the album ‘Renewal (Hyla Mix)’ is “my ode to R&B”, and the anthemic ‘Leave Room 2 Breathe’ features the vocals of life-long friend and frequent collaborator Alexa Dash. Jayda played a 4-week residency at London’s Phonox through February, as well as embarking on a tour throughout 2019 taking in dates across 12 countries including stops at Panorama Bar in Berlin, Primavera Sound in Barcelona and shows across India, China and Japan. Additionally she hosts a series of intimate talks, which started in London in February, aimed at offering young scientists a platform to discuss their recent academic work as well as their personal journeys. The primary objective of “JMG Talks” - www.jaydag.com - is to attempt to bridge the communication gap between critical work in contemporary science and the wider public to promote a better understanding of science. All proceeds will be donated to Free to Be Kids - a volunteer led charity that uses outdoor experiences to help disadvantaged children in London. “I just want people to feel not so hopeless... there's a lot of really depressing things going on, but people are doing good work out there and finding out really interesting stuff, so I just want people to be informed of those things, so that they feel inspired in whatever work that they do.” C/O Tunnel Club Via Giovanni Battista Sammartini 30, Milano MM2/MM3 Centrale

Tunnel Club

Via Giovanni Battista Sammartini 30, Milano, Italy

The word tunnel is defined as an architectural and engineering work connecting two areas, which are separated by a natural or, often, artificial barrier. One can provide many tunnel examples: from the Channel Tunnel to those realized for cities’ metro lines, from those built by Baron Haussmann within Paris’ sewerage system to those tunnels famous for legendary prison-breaks. Via Sammartini’s Tunnel does not seem to belong to any of these categories, nevertheless it really provides its function of connecting a human need. Built below Milano Centrale station’s rails, it has allowed since the mid-90s all Milaneses (but not only) to connect to all electronic (and not) contemporary sounds. The Tunnel was open every night of the week and was always crowded, offering concerts and dj-sets ranging from trip hop to drum ‘n’ bass, and also more experimental electronic sounds. As much as all successful things, at a certain point the Tunnel suffers the blow, and lives a somewhat dark period between the early 2000s and 2006, when it starts to get back on its feet (mostly thanks to techno, trance, and house dj-sets) and finally, in 2009, it goes back to being one of the focal points of Milan’s clubbing map. Together with the electronic dj-sets, indie-rock and hip-hop concerts come back as well, and more niche live-music shows too. With the passing of the years, some needed technical improvements arrived, and today we find an impressive viedowall and a Funktion One system that will blow you away. Regular tunnels have an entrance and an exit to a new “world”. Here, in Via Sammartini, once inside the Tunnel you will find everything that you want and, usually, it is hard to get out.
