Jay Carder infuses garage and 2-step with house and deep, ancestral grooves in sets that aim to release the soul and engage the spirit.
A resident DJ and promoter with global house/dance collective 4 To the Floor London, her selections are peppered with broken beat and inspired by raw, dance-heavy tribal rhythms and electronica from around the globe.
She's played internationally alongside the likes of Artwork, Osunlade, Alton Miller, Theo Cottis, Ben Pearce, Mike Pickering, Jungle Brothers, Henry Wu, Djeff Afrozila, Boddhi Satva and more.
Clubs include London’s Fabric, Printworks and Ibiza’s Pikes Hotel; festivals include Bestival (UK), Snowbombing (Austria), Secret Garden Party (UK), Asa Baako (Ghana) and Lost Village (UK).
Her fortnightly radio show House of Carder on Soho Radio focuses on downtempo, instrumental hip hop and more experimental sounds, each episode ranking in Mixcloud’s top 10 for triphop.
