Born in the streets of London and raised in the deserts of Dubai, Jairaj Ravrani began his musical journey, as Jai Nova, at the age 15 debuting in local clubs with his first headlining appearance alongside Dubai’s biggest radio hosts Kris Fade (Virgin Radio) and Saif and Sound (Channel 4). With his impressive presence, it was only a matter of time before he was spinning records on radio.

Having featured on multiple radio stations worldwide, while being noticed by dance music icons Avicii, Nicky Romero, Martin Garrix and Alesso, the young pioneer was offered to launched his very own radio show, Novadose Radio, which is now broadcasted worldwide on stations in USA, Mexico, Canada, Germany, Australia, Africa, Japan, Brazil, Croatia and many more.

Early 2015 kicked off with 2 new singles called ‘Lets Go’ and ‘Horizons’ gaining early support from EDM artists Blasterjaxx, Nicky Romero and Dyro and airplay on BBC Radio. Meanwhile ‘Horizons’ went viral within 24 hours hitting over 175,000 streams on Soundcloud alone. Further in to the year, Jai found himself signing an official remix for #1 hit artist Natalie La Rose and Caroline D’amore on Republic Records/Universal Music, catching the attention of the 2015 #1 DJ’s Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike, and Mixmag’s HYPE Magazine in Dubai.

In the following years, Jai Nova returned to the late Radio 1 Dubai to host his own segment ‘Jai Nova & Friends’ bringing special guests The Chainsmokers, Nervo, Yves V, EDX, Arno Cost and Max Vangeli. With live listeners over half a million, Jai Nova and friends delivered a historic performance known to be the biggest radio line up in Dubai history. This shortly lead to an exclusive remix working alongside Pop/Dance record breakers The Chainsmokers on their single “Setting Fires” as part of their Collage EP. Meanwhile, Jai’s radio show ‘Novadose Radio’ also reached big milestones and gained over 16 worldwide radio partners airing the show on a weekly basis.

Finishing his degree by the age of 19, Universal Music Dubai announced the signing of Jai Nova in early 2018. The first solo single under the label ‘Heart Is A Liar’ was released shortly after and gained a lot of attraction online and in the press. The new release debuted on Apple Music’s ‘Hot Tracks’ at #5 and featured in the ‘Future Hits’,’Best of the Week’ and ‘Today’s Hits’ playlists along with media support from DJ MAG and numerous local radio stations and newspapers in the Middle East. Spotify also took part in the success by featuring the track on its ‘Dance Rising’ playlist, currently sitting at 1.7 million followers.

A few months later saw a second single ‘Ride’, revealed in an exclusive interview and article with Red Bull. The single took the #1 spot on Apple Music’s A-List Dance playlist and the #1 spot on Anghami’s Pop Dance while also featuring on several Spotify playlists including New Music Friday. The continuous support on the single, to date, has racked up over 400,000 streams. The press also took part with radio interviews, newspapers and by making Jai the front cover of City Times Magazine in Dubai.

Late that summer, Jai released his ‘Homecoming EP’ which consisted of the 2 previous releases and a brand new single called ‘Elysium’. The EP made its way to the iTunes homepage with an exclusive showcase header along Drake, Wiz Khalifa and many more A-list artists. Shortly after, the ‘Elysium’ music video, shot in Dubai, was released on VEVO and eventually made its way on to MTV worldwide. With more support from music services, local press and the Dubai Tourism Board, Jai Nova’s closed 2018 with over 725,000 streams on Spotify alone.
