First learned about Jayda G at our first event at Smartbar Chicago then she played our show on the Lot Radio. To put it simply Jayda G is the energy the scene needs and needs more of. Her affection and adoration of music is fully present in all of her sets which are house, soul and disco inclined. Check our her mix and Q&A below. Jayda G is life, she rules.

tell us about this mix
All my mixes are done using vinyl made live (no Ableton). This mix is no exception. Also, it’s a one-take mix so listeners are getting an honest DJ set. All house. All tracks that I love.

when did you start djing?
2012 I think? That’s when I bought my first set of decks anyways.

first gig:
Good lord! At this little bar in Vancouver in the Gastown area. No one came expect my best friend and some people who just happened to be at the bar that night.

favorite party ever played:
Dublin back in July last year. It was an Out to Lunch party and the Dip crew played before me. It was such a special night. I was super moved by the love in the room.

fave DJ
To many to pick

fave producer
Moodymann

pet peeve when djing
When some touches the mixer when I’m playing.

what’s best compliment you’ve ever gotten?
Someone came up to me after a set and said that what and how I played made them feel like they could truly be themselves

place you’d like to play:
Everywhere! Its all about spreading the love

something you want everyone to know about you
That I am myself – not trying to be anything else
