Jade is an artist who has had the rare opportunity to be mentored by some of her biggest musical inspirations – a product of her environment in every sense, she has already found her place amongst some of today’s most influential electronic music producers.
Although her love of music started at a young age, it was acts like Kruder & Dorfmeister, Thievery Corporation and Massive Attack that really encouraged her to explore the world of sound and melody. Her introduction to DJing came back in 2008 when a friend and mentor, DJ/producer Jonny White (Art Department) , invited her to play at a party for his now infamous label, no.19. Jonny White, having spotted Jade’s musical potential, took her under his wing, guiding her through her exploration of and experimentation with electronic music from the very beginning.
Jade’s potential, combined with hard work and a desire to evolve her talent, led her out from behind the decks and into the studio; there, she created a sound that was sexy, organic and all her own. Deep, dark, fat bass lines accompanied by solid hi hat patterns became part of a signature sound that she finally shared with the world in 2012 when she released her first record “Try Again” – Jade (Canada) on none other than electronic label, no.19.
This has marked the beginning of what is sure to be a very exciting career for the Toronto native who continues to be motivated by music and inspired by producers who push the limits with innovative sounds.
I was originally born in Berlin and moved around at a very young age. By the age on 10 I had already lived in 3 different countries and spoke 4 languages. So it was very hard to move around and learn new cultures, although I believe I am extremely social and open minded because of it . In my mind to be an artist you need to be able to accept and be extremely open to life in order to be inspired and motivated to create whatever it is you are working on .
