New Release: Jaidene Veda – ‘shadowboxing heroes (mixes and monologues)’


You can take the album teaser off repeat now. Jaidene Veda this week released her new album, shadowboxing heroes (mixes and monologues), and simply just draws out the tease. Whew. We’ve got a few clips from the 23-track album for you to hear below.

Her beginning hums on “Open Love Letter” take us straight to Meshell Ndegeocello nostalgia as she then transitions into straight seductress spoken word, tightening her grip on your poor, poor heart. A soothing Ursula Rucker joins on “When” while Jai tickles us further with her backing vocals on the moving downtempo track.

New Mix: Jaidene Veda Album Teaser


The supremely talented miss Jaidene Veda has been gearing up to release her new album via an Indiegogo campaign. Silky sensual soulful house grooves that have tingles running up and down your spine with basically no effort.

Jai has no shame when it comes to wielding the powers of that tantalizing voice of hers. Lost your sexy? Let this woman help you bring it back. Shoot, even the album teaser could help you run a little game.

Very excited for this new project! To find out more about this lovely lady, check out her feature as our May Next Step winner!

Next Step May Winner: Jaidene Veda


Finally! Proud to announce our May Next Step winner to be the charming miss Jaidene Veda!

After co-writing and self-produceding three independent albums and two Billboard club singles, this young Canadian lady has already garnered recognition in the underground house community and the international top 40 club scene. Interestingly, Veda got her start in 2000 as an event producer and party promoter, inevitably helping her develop an audience prior to presenting herself as a singer.

Over the years, she has worked with an impressive who’s who, including Joe Claussell, Josh Milan, Glenn Underground, Jimpster, the Ananda Project, and Reelsoul.

This past fall saw the released of Jaidene’s debut full length album, Pisces Pendulum, which is an enchanting blend of loungy, jazzy, and soulful deep house sounds, and has been lauded by the likes of DJ Spinna, Danny Krivit, and Kenny Dope.
