Combining his influences from Moluccan folk and gospel, soul, funk and Japanese funk, JAEL's signature sound goes from soulful R&B to heavy bass and future beats
Giovanni Jano, better known as JAEL, is a 25 year old Moluccan recording artist, producer, DJ and vocalist from The Hague, The Netherlands. His passion for music began from a young age where he grew up in a household surrounded by Moluccan folk songs, Moluccan gospel, soul/funk and Japanese funk. JAEL embraced these sounds together with a broad variety of inspiration and combined it into his own signature sound: going from soulful R&B to heavy bass and future beats during his DJ sets but also in his production and/or songwriting. He has been showcasing his skills as a DJ, instrumentalist, vocalist and producer in these different genres all over the world.
JAEL just recently became an official member of the LA Based label and community Soulection and is also represented by Studio KOTO, an artist agency, label and management company from Amsterdam, who released his debut EP ‘Time’ (2018). With his EP, JAEL demonstrated that he can produce, record, play his own instruments and sing/write his own songs. Aside from his debut EP, JAEL has released two ‘Remixes & Club Edits’ Volumes 1 & 2, on which he brings a unique JAEL dipped Baile Funk meets future beats meets soul meets hip-hop sound. In additional, JAEL is currently working on projects with SUMIN, Crush, Midas Hutch, MAAD and Jengi and touring around the globe playing in the major cities in Asia, Africa and Europe.
