Steve Jansen (born Stephen Batt, 1 December 1959, in Beckenham, Kent, England) with his brother David Sylvian, Mick Karn, Richard Barbieri, and Rob Dean formed the band Japan.

Jansen played drums and percussion. After Japan broke up in 1982, Jansen recorded with bandmate Richard Barbieri under the name The Dolphin Brothers, with Jansen handling lead vocals as well as drums and percussion. In 1991, Jansen, Barbieri, and Karn formed Medium Productions as a venue for releasing their own music, as well as releases by other artists.

Jansen has worked extensively as a session musician and in collaboration with a wide range of international artists such as Yukihiro Takahashi and Italian singer-songwriter Alice. His most recent project is Nine Horses with David Sylvian and Burnt Friedman, which has given birth to one album and one extended play CD released through Sylvian's record label Samadhisound.

Jansen played percussion on tour with Sylvian through the latter half of 2007, and compositions from his latest solo album "Slope", which was released on 15 January 2008, were included in the setlist.
