Jayda G ‘Guy’ LP
Jayda G, the Grammy-nominated writer, producer, DJ, environmental toxicologist, campaigner and broadcaster, is returns with her new full length album, ‘Guy’.
Co-produced with Jack Peñate (who has previously worked with the likes of SAULT, David Byrne and Adele), with contributions from Lisa-Kaindé Diaz (of Ibeyi), Ed Thomas (Stormzy, Nia Archives, Jorja Smith) and more.
The new album brings Jayda’s own voice and words into focus across 13 tracks that draw on her House, Disco, RnB and Soul roots while emphasizing her pop songwriting sensibilities, interspersed with archival recordings of her late father made shortly before he passed away when Jayda was just 10 years old. They form the bedrock of the album’s narrative, capturing a small snapshot of the American experience, told through the eyes of a young African American man.
Despite the at times sombre nature of the source material, the album ultimately proves to be an uplifting and positive experience, both musically and from the message it delivers.
For fans of Channel Tres, Moodymann, SAULT, The Blessed Madonna, Honey Dijon, Roisin Murphy, PinkPantheress, Peggy Gou, DJ Koze, Anz, Little Dragon.
Coloured vinyl LP made from recycled vinyl records and offcuts (final vinyl colour and appearance will vary from mockup), housed in an FSC-certified gatefold sleeve and printed inner sleeve.
Mixed by Marta Salogni. Mastered by Heba Kadry. Cover photography by Nabil Elderkin.
Proceeds from album sales will be donated to various climate initiatives that Jayda visited during the filming of ‘Blue Carbon’, a film uncovering the untold stories of local / indigenous communities working to protect fragile seagrass, mangrove and tidal marsh ecosystems.
Has remixed Dua Lipa, HAIM, Tove Lo, Little Dragon, Romy, Griff and more.
