Meg Ward Newcastle / Leeds [Providing nice tunes for nice ears] Appointed one of BBC Music Introducing in the North East’s “Tips for 2021”, Meg Ward has emerged as a rising star of British electronic music. Her sound draws from acid house, electro, breakbeat and electronica, taking form as rave-ready bangers as well as lush synth soundscapes. Meg’s productions have been backed by heavyweights such as HAAi and Patrick Topping, with radio support coming courtesy of Jaguar, Annie Mac, Danny Howard and Nemone. Bringing high energy and huge personality to every set, Meg has made quite an imprint on the club and radio circuit. Her residency at Newcastle upon Tyne’s favourite underground event ‘ILL Behaviour’ cemented her in the growing scene of Newcastle’s DJ talent, and she closed 2020 with a showcase mix on BBC Radio 6 Music. Meg’s releases on labels Clipp.Art, &friends, Zone Focus and NeedWant, plus a remix on Patrick Topping’s imprint Trick, have made it to dance floors (and livestreams) across the globe, and Mixmag Japan awarded her guestmix for FTP the best mix of 2020. Northern house has a new global ambassador.
