July 2013 saw Dan Giovanni making a total commitment to honor and hollow his calling to be a leader and a positive example for friends and brethren’s in and around his community.

According to Dan Giovanni, an amplified Roots Reggae Artist, the answer and solution to the words problems is More Love. He packaged this message in a four track EP titled – More Love, and he sings nothing but More Love in all four tracks. There is the original roots mix of More Love as the opening rack laced with a heavy bass line, giving it that authentic roots reggae vibe. It is then followed by the Acoustic Mix of the same title isolating the vocal abilities and sensibilities of the Jamaican native and amplifying the message. He then flips it on the dub side, on track number three, in true foundation style. The last track is an electronic mix because the mission of spreading love cannot be limited to one genre and in order to connect with the global market, an electronic mix was added which might resonate with the young generation.
