Jayda G has announced her debut album, ‘Significant Changes’, which aims to bring together her two great loves – house music and environmental science.

The album was completed around the same time that the producer finished her masters degree in Resource And Environmental Management. The album’s titled, ‘Significant Changes’, was also the most-used phrase in her thesis on the effects of human activity on the Salish Sea killer whales of Vancouver.

“I’m trying to bring my two worlds together to bridge the communication gap [and] engage people in a new way”, she says. “I don’t know if people in the electronic music world will want to talk about the environment but I think I should try! I think it’s our duty to use a platform like this in a positive way, that’s our social responsibility”.

Those attempts will see her play a four week residency at Phonox in London in February, and also host two talks on environmental science while she is in town. The JMG Talks will invite young scientists to discuss their recent academic work.

“I just want people to feel not so hopeless”, she says. “There’s a lot of really depressing things going on, but people are doing good work out there and finding out really interesting stuff, so I just want people to be informed of those things, so that they feel inspired in whatever work that they do”.

There are further details on all that at Jayda G’s website. And let’s not forget there’s music too. The album is out on 22 Mar, and here’s new single ‘Leave Room 2 Breath’ featuring vocals from Alexa Dash:
