JLV, born as Joël Vels, has always had a love and passion for creating. At the age of 15, he decided to start making music and learn how to play the piano. He first caught the public eye with his remix for Stisema's 'Hold On', which quickly gathered over 4 million streams online.
Over the next few years, JLV built a name for himself in the deep house community by teaming up with online platform Selected., who supported a lot of his early releases. 'Back to you', 'Darkness', 'Look Away' and 'Soaring' are just some of the musical highlights, which saw him gather over 15 million streams online. He also added remix credits for acts like Blonde, Throttle, THRDL!FE and Maan on the Moon.
In 2018, JLV signed his single 'Something Good' to HEXAGON, following continuous support from the label's head honcho Don Diablo. Artists like NERVO, Tiësto, Oliver Heldens and EDX quickly jumped on the track as well. Early 2019, JLV dropped his single ‘Want Love’ on HEXAGON, returning to his deep house roots. Shortly after, he released 'Cyber Heart' on HEXAGON and he's got his next single, ‘Stupid’, lined-up already. The Dutch young gun is playing some big European festivals this summer.
