Jayda G in conversation: family, new album, science in music

Show notes

Jayda G’s resume includes a Grammy nomination, remixes for the likes of Dua Lipa and Taylor Swift, and played countless shows on some of the world’s most coveted stages. But even more importantly, she has something to say. Whether it’s speaking out on environmental issues or sharing her story as an African-American kid growing up in rural Canada to become one of the defining DJs and producers of our time, Jayda’s is a voice that needs to be heard. With her sophomore album, Guy, set for release in early June, Jayda G sat down with The Week host Kikelomo for an extensive Electronic Beats Conversation. They touch on how her art is influenced by her background as a scientist, her experience of grief, and how her late father passed on an immense passion for music without her even knowing about his past as a radio DJ.
