Jayda G

Canadian by birth and now Berlin-based, Jayda G has risen steadily and stealthily through the dance music underground with her infectious energy, vitality and boundless enthusiasm. She released her debut album “Significant Changes” on Ninja Tune in March 2019.

Renowned for her high-energy performances as a DJ – Jayda G has played all over the world including a renowned Boiler Room set at Dekmantel in 2017 and many 2018 festivals including Field Day, Melt!, Night + Day Bilbao plus nights for Rhythm Section, The Hydra, Warehouse Project and many more. In 2018 she also remixed Little Dragon’s track ‘Lover Chanting’.

The same year 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 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 is a demonstration of how inextricably linked her work in science is with her music.

Jon Hopkins’ new album, Singularity, his first since 2013’s Immunity, was released in May 2018 on Domino Records.

Singularity begins and ends on the same note: a universe beginning, expanding, and contracting towards the same infinitesimal point. Where Immunity – his hypnotic breakthrough LP – charted the dark alternative reality of an epic night out, Singularity explores the dissonance between dystopian urbanity and the green forest. It is a journey that returns to where it began – from the opening note of foreboding to the final sound of acceptance.

Shaped by his experiences with meditation and trance states, the album flows seamlessly from rugged techno to transcendent choral music, from solo acoustic piano to psychedelic ambient. Its epic musical palette is visceral and emotionally honest: with a destructive opener full of industrial electronics and sonic claustrophobia and a redemptive, pure end on solo piano, this album reflects the psychological states Hopkins lived through during the writing process.

Exploring the connectivity of the mind, sonics and the natural world, Singularity is intended to be listened to in one sitting, as a complete body of work.

Kapoor

Kapoor

Kamil Mokrzanowski (Kapoor) was born in 1987. From an early age, he listened to electronic sounds and learned about the world of music thanks to Pink Floyd’s, Depeche Mode and Genesis records, which he was stealing from his parents.

At the age of 17 he began to listen to trance music and remained faithful to the genre for many years. Currently, during performances in clubs, he shares his definition of electronic music, combining progressive, deep and especially slow mo/oriental sounds. His favourite artists include Bedouin, Be Svendsen, Viken Arman, Satori and many others. The labels he appreciates the most are Underyourskin, Lump, Crosstown Rebels, Deep Bali Records, True Colors Records, Pipe & Pochet and CopyCOW.

Thanks to a well-chosen selection of music, he brings out what is most important – emotions. As he says, DJing in his life takes second place, right after… music production. As Kapoor, he is preparing several EPs, which you will be able to hear soon.
