Jole Richard Hughes is a UK hardcore musician from Brisbane who performs as S3RL (or DJ S3RL). In October 2010 he appeared as a DJ at the inaugural Bam! Festival at Ivory's Rock in south-east Queensland.
One of S3RL's popular tracks is "Pretty Rave Girl" (2006), which uses the melody from "Daddy DJ" (November 1999) by the French dance act of the same name. S3RL has contributed tracks for several UK hardcore compilation series, including the Bonkers series. Some of his other works are "Fantasy Land", "Raver Dimension", "Rainbow Girl", "Friendzoned", "Sek C Raver", "Little Kandi Raver", "Pika Girl", "Keep on Raving Baby", "Bass Slut", "Feel the Melody" and "MTC". S3RL uses Reason software by Propellerhead to create his music.
Many of his songs reference geek culture such as anime, manga and video games. In 2011, he founded his own label, EMFA Music, through which all of his productions and remixed works are released. In May 2012, the label issued "Press Play Walk Away", as a single by S3RL and SynthWulf, a fellow hardcore DJ.
As of February 2015, S3RL was ranked 1658 on the "Official Global DJ Rankings" page dj-rankings.com which bases its rankings on a number of factors include chart rankings, DJ fees, and radio airplay. During mid-2015, his single "Genre Police" (featuring Lexi), which had been issued in Australia in November the previous year, peaked at No. 10 on the Norwegian singles chart.
S3RL married Jodie Hughes in 2012. S3RL lives in Brisbane, Queensland with Jodie and their baby Ryker Hughes. The stage name, S3RL, was based on a nickname his cousins gave him when he was little, which derived from his cousins calling him "asshole", but they weren't allowed to swear so they began saying "Jole you arserl", and according to him, the word stuck and became his stage name.
