An avid collector of all that is funk since '99, Calamity Jade grew up in NYC surrounded by Afro-American culture and music. After moving to Milan, Italy at 19, she starts a radioshow on her local college radio and begins spinning her vinyl records in small local clubs (Biko, Zoom, Dynamo), as well as in other Italian cities (Bologna, Florence, Bari) and abroad (Hamburg, Cologne, Frankfurt).
From 2009 to 2012 Calamity Jade collaborates with much-respected funk label Record Kicks, for whom she takes care of promotion and marketing, and in 2012 she leaves the label to open her own promotion agency Willwork4funk, specialized in funk/soul/jazz/afro and through which she collaborates for various labels such as Legere, Jalapeno, Mocambo Agogo Records and more.
To introduce us to her eclectic sound Jade recorded an exclusive mix called ‘Summer Saudade’ blending classic bossa and new batufunk, sweet samba and futuristic afrolounge. Enjoy the groove!
