Bio:

At a very young age Junior Rodgers his family noticed music had a big influence on him. At age 10 Junior started to rap and write lyrics.Some years lat er Junior moved t o Curacao part of t he Dutch Antilles island group. As a teenager on Curacao he was surrounded by the summer sounds of the Caribbean listening to Merengue, Salsa, Soca, Reggae and Zouk. These sounds have similarly influenced his interpretation of dance music as with many European- based Caribbean's.When Junior Returned to Holland in 1995 the next logic step to compliment his raps was to make his own beats but at this time he didn’t have a clue on how that was done. Luckily at that time his brother-in-law decided to buy an Akai sampler and a Atari 1040st with Cubase and two turntables. Within a month junior knew this equipment inside out and started banging out beats and mixing his first records at that time still R&B and Hiphop.When in 1999 Junior went to his first dance music festivals he was immediately infected by the House music virus and from that day on he knew that House music was what he wanted to be part of.In 2003 Junior’s first releases saw daylight released on UDC music.Six years later Junior’s releases really started to get a lot of attention and support. His singles “That Amsterdam Sound” and “Boss up di Bass” were rewarded with a position in the Dutch national charts. His next releases all got a lot of dj support by the likes of Roger Sanchez, ATFC, Mastiksoul and Eric Morillo to name a few.2011 was the year that Junior Rodgers started his own label Majestic Beats under the wings of Gregor Salto’s label group.At this moment Junior is doing a lot of new productions with emphasis on house, but always trying to blend in his love for hip-hop and Caribbean music. Junior is always pushing the boundaries of house music making it hard to place him in a specific subgenre. The only sensible thing to say about his dj sets and productions is that they’re funky and energetic and guarantee to get any crowd moving.
