Originally from Kwazulu Natal, South Africa, Elle Jae inherited her intense love for music from her
dad who always surrounded her with music and inspired her with his natural talent for playing
instruments which lead to her own journey of playing the piano from the age of 9.

After experiencing the London Underground clubbing scene during her OE she moved to New
Zealand where she embarked on a mission to reunite with people she met on her travels and so her
hard dance event, London Hard House Reunion was born. It was through this event that her creative
partnership with Alfie Bamford came to be and together they’ve produced 30 tracks, released on
various labels around the world, including Enormous Tunes/Enormous Vision, Krafted, Polyptych,
Freegrant Music, Sekora, Natura Viva, Murray Records, OHM Music and many more.

Her latest release, Revive, is out now as part of Krafted X – a compilation celebrating a decade of the revered progressive house label.


Paul Sawyer – Stay Around

This track ticks all the boxes: stunning vocals, beautiful melody, an instant ‘yes’ and straight into my Rekordbox. So perfectly put together in true Paul Sawyer fashion! I’m a big fan.

Allies for Everyone – Volatile

I am always inspired by and totally mad about 80’s/synthwave music and this track had me at the first few beats. Obsessed. I could listen to it on repeat all day long!

MeowWow – Star Dance

This track always draws me in with its sweet vocals & dreamy chords and having had the pleasure of getting to know the lovely MeowWow behind the track, I know this one is from the heart.

Danny Stubbs, Sonia Scott, Stoby – Remind me of You

What a powerful ensemble of producers. A proper poolside track with Ibiza vibes that sets the mood for a big night out.

Simon Sinfield – Decadence

The chords in the breakdown are just heavenly! And, I love the combination of the piano with the darker sounds coming through. Delicate yet driving.

Shemsu & Gilbert Lezana – Geraldinne

This has it all going on – love the infectious energy & driving force behind this track. This will become a dance floor favourite!

Carla Werner – Vanishing Point (Joey B Lord Remix)

I absolutely love that Krafted supports different genres… I’m a closet DnB lover and this one surely hits the spot. Carla’s voice is elegant & mesmerizing!

Bert Voorman – Higher

Uplifting & catchy – a gorgeous progressive track with a dash of trance energy. Beautifully executed.

Elle Jae – Florence (Standard Form Inner Truth Remix)

It’s hard to put into words just how much this track means to me. Written for my mom, the Krafted team came together to put an unforgettable release together including remixes by super talented producers. A release very close to my heart, this remix by Standard Form blew me away and it’s hard for me to listen to it without shedding a tear or two. It’s simply stunning in every way.

Elle Jae – Oblivion

I had to add this to my top 10: my very first original vocal track and to my delight, Krafted immediately snapped it up. It’s one of my favourites to play out and also holds so many special memories from the studio to the dance floor.
