Marie Davidson is a self-confessed workaholic. Her fourth album ‘Working Class Woman’, released in October of last year, is perhaps her most self-reflective to date. A veteran of the global club music scene, her most recent album is some of her most introspective, cutting work to date, and she’s ready to poke fun at the industry she’s spent her career navigating. She sat down with Chal Ravens, journalist and host of Red Bull Radio’s ‘Top Flight’, before Marie’s performance at Field Day festival in London.

What do Quincy Jones, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Flying Lotus have in common? They’re all fans of Louis Cole. He’s had the rare pleasure of performing in Quincy Jones’ living room, been invited on tour with the Red Hot Chilli Peppers, and signed to Fly Lo’s label Brainfeeder, which isn’t bad going for someone who’s first 2 albums were released through his Youtube channel. Our producer Jack sat down with Louis backstage before his show in London this month to talk about Louis’ latest album, ‘Time’, and his follow up EP of Live sessions recorded with his talented friends including Nate Wood and Ben Wendel from Kneebody, Jacob Mann, Sam Wilkes and Genevieve Artadi to name but a few.

Jayda G’s debut album “Significant Changes" has a quality to it that’s hard to place in one space and time. At times, it's studio 54 at its peak, whilst at others it's tackling some the biggest issues of the present day. We’re used to club tracks sampling snippets of old documentaries and classic films, whereas on "Significant Changes'’ you’ll find Jayda using Orca cries and quotes from climate scientists. Jayda G sat down with Adam Corner, journalist and Research Director at Climate Outreach to talk about the melding of her music career and conservationist work and her series of talks engaging a new generation of music fans with the science behind the headlines. The next instalment of Jayda’s JMG Talks is scheduled for 22nd May at Giant Steps in Hackney Wick, tickets available via the DICE app. Remember to rate and subscribe to the Ninja Tune podcast wherever you get it.
