In 2003 Mahmoud Radaideh formed JadaL which was then one of the pioneer Arabic rock bands in the Arab region. In leading JadaL, Radaideh played many roles, including songwriter, guitarist, producer and later also as a vocalist (2012–present).[1]

he started songwriting by composing the majority of JadaL's first album, Arabic Rocks, such as "Salma", which he composed for his yet to be born niece, asking his sister to name her Salma. It was first released as a single in 2007; the song helped JadaL reach national and regional recognition after JadaL's first release which was a rock rearrangement of "Kol Ma gol El tobah", for Abdel Halim Hafez which was released in 2004. Later on, "Salma" and many other compositions by Radaideh formed the majority of JadaL's first album "Arabic Rocks" released in 2009.

In 2012, Radaideh collaborated with musicians to record and release his compositions in a second album, El Makina that was released 29 December 2012 and contained hit songs, such as "Ana bakhaf min el commitment"[2] and "El Makina", both of which helped JadaL gain even larger recognition and expand their fan base.

In 2016 Mahmoud Radaideh wrote and produced JadaL's Album Malyoun and performed in it as the sole Vocalist for the first time in his career, as well as all Guitars and some keyboards.

In late 2014, Mahmoud Radaideh collaborated with musician, friend, and songwriter Ahmad Farah to form their folktronica side project, Badal FaQed.
