“Joggo” born as Jurgen Orville Seedorf on October the 29th 1980 in Amsterdam, introduced himself to the reggae audience in 2008 after the release of the mix tape “Beware”.
The song “Beware” on Bobby Konders “Kingdom riddim” had a huge international impact and peaked at the #2 position in the official German reggae charts for weeks.
With performances on big festivals like: Summerjam and Reggaejam, Joggo also proved to be an excellent live performer which resulted in holding crowds busy from beginning till the end. After releasing several singles on riddims of internationally well known producers such as: Curtis Lynch, Jr Blender and many more, Joggo also got recognition in Hawaii where the single “Peace and Love” turned out to be an instant hit tune.
Growing up with all kind of musical influences, reggae always had a special place in his heart. This because of the positive and conscience messages brought into the music. His biggest inspiration to start singing reggae is: Bob Marley but also legends like Burning Spear, Dennis Brown, Berres Hammond, Jimmy Cliff and Gregory Isaacs.
In June 2011 Dredda Records released Joggo’s first official album called Modern Rockers Vol.1, this album contains hit songs like Peace and Love, DJ, Gun Down and Strong Black Woman. Also on this album the well known Turbulence The Future appears in a Featuring with Joggo and Jah Decko with a big tune “Strong like Lion”!!
Joggo started to focus on the release of his new album and new singles. After various performances on summer festivals such as Zwarte Cross, Ruigoord and Reggae Sundance he also opened the show for Stephan Marley, Ijah man Levi, Midnite and Turbulence.
He released the first two singles from his upcoming album “conscious love”, called “Keep it burning” and “Private Performer” who within one week reached the number 1 position at the I tunes reggae charts top 200. Many (radio) performances and interviews with the mainstream audience followed.
In 2019 Joggo released his third album ‘Love Ova War’ under his own label called Joggo Music Productions and this earned him some great reviews worldwide. With his album ‘Love Ova War’, Joggo once again proves to be one of the top acts of the European reggae scene. Not only as a producer but also as a producer and songwriter. Last year JOGGO released two new videoclips, starting with a strong collaboration with Empress Black Omolo (Kenya), followed by ‘Path of Love’ (Produced by JMP, Riddim by House of Riddim from Austria). Both video clips were shot in Portugal. In 2020, there is again a lot of niceness in the planning. Joggo is busy making new music, a number of great collaborations are coming up and Joggo & the ‘Rude Cut Band’ will tour across the country with a brand new energetic roots reggae show. Expect the unexpected!
