Melding house, techno, disco and garage in her slick, genre-bending sets, Newcastle-based DJ and producer Meg Ward has catapulted onto her local scene and beyond. With a residency at Newcastle’s Ill Behaviour event, whilst gaining support from the likes of Patrick Topping, Mark Blair and Demuja, the rising Northerner is paving the way for global success.

Proof of Meg’s dynamic production skill shines through with recent track Disappear reaching no.7 on the Beatport Electronica Chart whilst landing support from Jaguar on her BBC Introducing dance show. Continuing to showcase her versatile talent, Sterling from her Phenol House EP illustrated Meg’s signature bass lines and synth heavy combos, earning recognition from HAAi on her BBC Radio 1 Residency.

Now with Monki championing the rising talent, Meg Ward continues to make waves with Lookin 4 Fame. The release is a two-track stomper that culminated from Meg’s time spent during the global lockdown: This EP is about how everyone is looking for fame, including me. The stompy bassline gives you a walking feeling – a journey to fame. I made this EP in lockdown, with the intention of bringing the club experience to me. ‘Ponte Cakes’ comes from the place I grew up (Pontefract). The donk bass reminds me of that place and the music I listened to when I was younger.”

With nostalgia of dance floors and her hometown prominent in each sequence, Lookin 4 Fame ascends into a weighty techno infused breakdown that weaves amongst cosmic synths and chipper percussion. Meanwhile B side Ponte Cakes eases into acid pulses and edgy rhythms that underpin futuristic pads, making for a next level debut on Monki’s &Friends that is sure to boost Meg Ward’s sky-rocketing career.
