Joggo introduced himself to the reggae audience after releasing the mixtape called “Beware” in 2008. The song “Beware”on Bobby konders “Kingdom riddim” had a huge impact internationally and peaked at the #2 position in the official German reggae charts for weeks.
With performances on big festivals like: Summerjam(Ger) and Reggaejam, Joggo proved to be an excellent live performer holding crowds busy from beginning till end. After releasing several singles on riddims of internationally well known producers as: Curtis Lynch, Jr Blender and more, Joggo even got recognition in Hawaii where the track: “Peace and Love” turned out to be an instant hit tune.
Joggo, born Jurgen Orville Seedorf on october the 29th 1980 in Amsterdam, currently lives in Surinam the land of his parents and a former colony of the Netherlands. Music has always been his passion longside soccer. Growing up with all kinds of musical influences, reggae always had a special place in his heart. This because of the positive and conscious messages brought to the music. His biggest inspiration to start singing reggae were like a whole lot a people: Bob Marley, but also legends like Burning Spear, Steel Pulse and more.
Joggo recorded his first Mixtape “Beware” with the Dutch/Surinam producers from Dreddarecords: “Decko and “Marro”. Two very talented guys who give the old school cultural roots reggae music a modern flavour at his best.
Its “Decko and “Marro” who also produced most of the songs of Joggo’s first album called “Modern Rockers vol 1. The album is released by Dreddarecords, and includes big tunes like: “Peace and Love”, “Gundown” and a lot of tunes who had never before have been released as singles.
On this album you will hear the extraordinary talent of the modern rocker “Joggo”.
Especially in times where cultural reggae is in a recession, this gives hope for all the people who are longing to hear reggae with the vibes of the past but still filled with elements of the present!
