So who is Jad & The Ladyboy?

Jad & The Ladyboy

Myself and a ladyboy based in Bangkok. My ladyboy friend doesn’t have the internet so she/he sends me melody ideas via coconuts she sends across the sea. It means we are very slow at making music, but hopefully worth the wait?

You just released your Mamibian Gold EP with Toy Tonics, can you explain the inspiration behind the EP?

Jad & The Ladyboy

I’ve always been into the ethnic hymn like music. Something hypnotic about the chanting and poly rhythms used that I love. A heap of old afrobeat and afro groove records I was listening to inspired this EP.

Besides your solo project, you’re also a member of several bands, do you approach your solo work differently to working as part of a team?

Jad & The Ladyboy

100%. With Jad & The Ladyboy I’m very able to take the music to weird irrational places and it doesn’t matter. Defintely some magic can happen when you work with a team though, stuff you’d never think of yourself.

Three tracks you can’t get enough of?

Jad & The Ladyboy

Floating Points – Nectarine, to me he is the best producer around, I’d make music like him but I can’t!
Roy Ayers – We live in Brooklyn, Baby. Old, but one of the greatest.
Roman Flugel – Brasil, that whole EP blew my mind

You’ve released with Exploited, Retrofit and now Toy Tonics, is there any imprints on your radar you would love to put tracks out on?

Jad & The Ladyboy

At the start of May I’ll be releasing an EP on Sonar Kollektiv a label i’m a huge fan of so it’s a great achievement for me. But there are so many great labels out there my list would be too big :)

Tell us something we shouldn’t know about you?

Jad & The Ladyboy

I live in an amazingly beautiful coastal town which makes me surf more than I make music it might actually end my career if I’m not careful.

Your dream collaboration, either living or past?

Jad & The Ladyboy

That’s really hard but imagine having Curtis Mayfield singing on your tune?!

Can you talk about any plans you may have for the future?

Jad & The Ladyboy

Hopefully getting over to Europe and playing some music over there oh and release more tunes.
