I'm Jannick aka JSL. I do creative stuff. Artwork, music, events, ideas. Stuff like that.
Born 1976 in a small town in the south of Denmark. I now reside in Copenhagen. I'm a dad of two cool kids and married to my awesome wife, Anne Katrine. I'm a creative at We Love People – working with purpose driven creativity.
This is me trying to look like a glamour model from the 00's.
A selection of my artwork, photos, projects and... eh... stuff can be found here.
It's the way I do stuff. It started with the music, but it also applies to artwork, ideas creation, events... most things, really. Some people call it "I got inspired by…", some recites on the classics. I think of it as sampling. This is me – early 90's style, trying to look like I'm on my way to a NWA & The Posse photoshoot.

I started producing music around 1990 building weird (ie. very poor sounding) "beats" on a Amiga 500, using the much loved programme, Pro Tracker. Since I've had numerous releases on various labels as both producer, rapper and remixer in genres like Hip Hop, House, Reggae, Dub, Techno, UK Garage and Dubstep, using aliases like JSL, RUF, Wolf Man, FRESH, DJ JSL among others.
I'm part of the OHOI! crew.
"OHOI! has since 2002 acted as a pioneering promoter of bass culture and bass music in Denmark and Scandinavia. With an uncompromising and unstoppable force, OHOI! is regarded uncrowned king of genres such as dubstep, drum & bass and UK Funky."
Yes, we run tings, rudebwoy!
In 2007 I co-founded a music label – Kraken Recordings, as part of the early state of the Dubstep movement.
This is the view from one of the best gigs ever.
And, oh, I like real cars. Meaning cars produced, at least, somewhere before 1990. Mostly german and old US. I like cars that actually smell of metal, oil and rust. Favorite brand – Mercedes-Benz.
This was mine, but it's gone now. I cry a little bit every night...
And, oh, I really f*cking love technology – old as new.
