A turning head and powerhouse artist JackEL recently released his single titled “Country Lady” (ft. Michael Black) a product of his turntable greatness. Being covered from most DJ songs, “Country Lady” was such a smashing, extravaganza. I found myself loving every transition and beat this song consisted of including the funky, cheeky lyrics and vocals. It has significantly different cool segments mashed together in one diverse mix. The trumpets send off a Spanish and suave aesthetic mixed with the video game kicks and upbeat tempo. As soon as the hook goes off there’s a transition in the beat which turns into a sort of EDM and Dubstep sound. I actually found myself enjoying the limited vocals showcased in the song. It would be cool if he continues to show off his profound sound he possesses on every song he diligently spends time creating.
The DJ world should be just as respected as the mainstream vocalists because the amount of effort, time and patience needed to create a flawless song requires a special talent. JackEL has proved to himself that he can create waves national and international and that will be his strong-suit for his personal musical journey. If he continues to release charismatic and fun singles as “Country Lady”, JackEL will be a household name for sure.

Care to introduce yourself to our readers?
I’m JackEL a music producer / DJ based in Las Vegas.
Can you give us a brief history of your musical career?
I’ve been touring since I was 10 years old. Now that I'm 22 I’ve DJ’d my originals all around the world. I’ve been in bands, church choirs, hip hop groups and EDM groups. Right now I’m mainly focusing on producing for myself, doing remixes for other artists, and producing for select artists. I spent the first 7 years of my life in New Orleans, the 2nd 7 years of my life in Canada and the third half of my life in Las Vegas.
Do you write your own music? Can you tell us a bit about your writing style?
I do write my own music. I have around 250 original productions on Spotify and every online store right now. I am a diverse producer and have produced across many genres, to me it’s always a different method of creating the art. I personally like to vibe off other artists ideas and use there energy to create something magical together. I always go into a record with a purpose of what genre i’m trying to achieve.
Your latest release "Country Lady" is a total vibe! Can you tell us a bit about it?
I’m usually releasing a new song every week on major platforms. I’m thankful you guys are enjoying my latest record. If you are referring to my single "Country Lady" that one came together in a unique fashion. I produced the instrumental for an artist who didn’t like it. Then I left it at a Las Vegas studio “Angel Play Records” where Michael Black took it over and added the reggae vibe with his vocals, and he had some guest vocalists and horn players on it. I also had Blondie&Brownie and Lana Love from New York fly out to Vegas to perform vocally on the record. I produced / Mixed and helped master the record. I’m happy with how it turned out, and am happy to move onto the next one.
Where did the inspiration behind "Country Lady" come from?
Well I went into the record producing it for an artist Slicklife who after hearing the instrumental decided to not move forward with it, so I was just stuck with this instrumental that I left at Angel Play Records, and after months I finally heard it again and with Michael Black pushing me to hear it and move forward with it. I remember I sent the instrumental to 5+ producers asking for help finishing it, but I ended up having to just go in myself to finish it. I got inspired by Pappageorge an epic producer at Angel Play Records, he showed me a lot of cool Jungle & DNB.
What are three things you’d love your fans to know about you?
I’d love my fans to know that I love them, when they come to a show we will have fun together. I want them to know that I live in breathe the music I create. I want my fans to know that we are in this together, and we will keep rising to the top of success.
Any upcoming shows? For someone who hasn’t seen you live yet, how would you describe your performance?
Oct 13th I’ll be DJing live in Las Vegas with Donald Glaude at Artisan . Then I’m headed to Europe on tour there for November. My shows are Love, Peace, Honesty, rage, dancing. I want everyone to dance, feel the love and rage and head bang.
What’s next for JackEL?
So much is to come for me and my team. I’m thankful to be where I am, but I’m headed for all the festivals worldwide, I’m headed for the best nightclubs in the world. My originals are headed to the top of the charts, and I’m producing for the best artists in the world in the coming years. Thank you for everyone on my team and all the fans pushing us.
