Rising DJ JVNA Talks About Overcoming Challenges in Music

JVNA talked about her career at the Nexus Lounge Miami and shared her perspective on the challenges in music. The DJ, one of the rising stars in electronic music in recent years, is the creator of hits like ‘Crazy,’ with over 16 million streams on Spotify.

Her interest in music started early when she was just 6 years old. First, JVNA studied at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music in the United States, where she created soundtracks for video games and movies. Then, inspired by future bass, the artist began exploring electronic music by remixing anime and game soundtracks.

“I think the biggest challenge I’ve had as a musician was feeling confident in my vision and just believing in myself as an artist,” she says. For her, there is no point in doing art if you don’t believe in your talent.

“I’m constantly feeling like I’m pushing myself to do something that’s my comfort zone, which is scary. So I think the hardest part of that, and being an artist and the most rewarding part is believing in myself.”


Her fan base gained even more strength with the release of the track ‘I’m With You’ in 2018. The death of her father inspired the song, and JVNA directed the music video, the first of her career.

‘Catch Me’ was the next standout single that led JVNA to embark on a sold-out tour across the United States. The pandemic caused the artist to return to the studio and work on new projects.

JVNA collaborates with Caslow, Kode PinK, MVSE, Awakend, Mondry, KENDRO, LICK, RayRay, and ASCA in her discography. In 2021, she released her debut album, ‘Hope In Chaos,’ with 12 tracks.

For 2023, she is preparing a new album. In March, JVNA gave a taste of what’s to come with the single ‘The World Is Mine. “[The album] it’s inspired by all my influences. So it’s very inspired by soundtracks, especially from anime, K-Pop, and the emotions I feel about being a female artist in the scene. It can be very angry and also very feminine”, she explains.

In addition to social media, the artist produces vlogs of trips and her routine for YouTube. She also does live streams of her sets of techno, melodic dubstep, melodic bass, speed house, and other genres.
