About the artist
Not alot is written about Jelger, which is why he writes his own biography. Jelger finds it alienating to write about himself in the third person. What can he do about this? Well, the plan is that he will score a sweet hit with Marco Borsato so that he will let others write about him. Until then you have to do it with this.

All craziness aside: Jelger is one of the six sons of Groningen folk singer Ede Staal. After he got a keyboard and a tapedeck at the age of six of his older acid-house loving brother, a cassette tape filled with childlike swagger, music compilations and attempts at his own radio shows with brother Jasper followed. From the age of sixteen he started to forge experimental sound compositions inspired by artists such as Orbital, Monolake, Underworld and LTJ Bukem.

In his twenties hiphop arrived as a new musical love, and he fused his love of language with rhymes on beats, as a new discipline besides making compositions. Jelger is currently presenting the Doowutyalike radio show on Oogradio and the eclectic Stay Hungry podcast on TheFindMag. Jelger's song for de Biotape is a short, dreamy, but also dramatic meditation on the devastating impact that the Spaniards had on the culture of the Aztecs.
