Jonathan Axelsson was born in Sweden, and got in touch with music very early in life since both his father and grandfather were musicians. As a young boy he started playing drums, and then continued with piano lessons.

In the mid 90´s he discovered a new type of music that would change his life forever. The music he heard was called deep house, and struck Jonathan’s heart immediately. Since then he started to produce music in a more serious matter and in 1997 he got in touch with Johan Bacto, which later formed the label PlackTown Sounds. Jonathan was now known as Ronin, and made a lot of releases on the PlackTown Sounds imprint. With a lot of great feedback from radiostations, magazines, DJ´s and even television, Ronin continued on the path of sensual, moody deep house.

His music was reaching out to the world, and in the year of 2001 he released a mini LP on Chris Grays label, Deep4Life in Chicago. Chris gave Jonathan his second artist name J. Axel, and he was now focusing on vocal deep house, and he started working with the talented vocalist Astrid Suryanto. He still produced instrumental deep house as Ronin, and in 2002 he made a release on Timewriter´s label Driftwood. In late 2004 Jonathan completed his album, J. Axel - Deepness Is Served, which was released 31:st of July 2006 on the German record label Bohéme. This album was later digitally re-released by Plastic City.

    all in all start receiving is a light and fluffy album, the jazzy sounds make it fit perfectly for clubbin- and bartimes.

    How to properly express the love? A story: when Rasmus Faber's album Where We Belong finally got through my thick skull, i decided that the last half was the most sublime thing I had ever heard: I coudn't rave enough about it. Now J. Axel has topped it, and within the year. I have never "loved" every single album track on an album on these pages. I'm now pulling out that honor for J. Axel alone. The man who kept my chilly soul company two years ago with "Deepness is Served" has now gone injected that same chilly soul with musical morphine. In the very near future Lukas Greenberg will show a similar move of personal growth and forward musical reach. But for now the show is entirely the property of J. Axel. Plastic City is one lucky fucking record label!!
