    Drawing their name from spice island slang for "Good God!", Bonjay were born in a basement at Ottawa's legendary Disorganised parties. What began as a simple crowd pleasing party lark has developed into a serious commitment to songwriting and production, including remixes for labels like Mad Decent, Ninjatune and Ghetto Arc (XL Recordings).

    With Alanna on the mic and Pho on beats & effects, their live performance is a high-energy sound system of bass and soul. Dancehall innovation, indie sentiments, and R&B hooks - these are the sounds booming out from the jeeps, towers and headphones of young Toronto, and Bonjay makes them their own.

    What people had to say...

    ““Gimmee Gimmee” is kinda like T-Dot diasporic lo-fi dancehall. [...] it works as a transition track for a washed out rave or soundtrack for your own personal Run Lola Run." — The Fader

    “They’re so hot right now, it’s ridiculous; and on merit. They make progressive, ambitious and experimental music that mashes dancehall, indie, and just about every form of electronic music made in the last ten years together." — Okayplayer

    “...now it’s time for both the duo’s fire branding, sassed out front woman Alanna and producer Pho to step out." — Dazed and Confused

    ““This is next-level club music, with texture and depth to spare.”” — Montreal Gazette

    “[…] soulful Bonjay vocalist Alanna Stuart proved she’s hands-down one of the city’s most enrapturing performers.” — NOW Magazine
