28-04-2011 - New album... loads of sketches ready!
in b/w all mixdown
and mastering sessions... I’m writing down the restrictions for the new Jerboa

ASAP to lock me in the room with all of my friends!!
Scratchin’ it up on the 2 turntables and completely destroy it!
16-07-2009 - Last summer Jerboa saved my life
The mouse left the studio to mix 4 exclusive DJ sets for national radio ‘Studio Brussel’.
July 7th the first one hit the waves, make sure to catch the next three:
July 16th, 10 till 11pm
August 4th, 11 till 12pm
August 17th, 10 till 11pm
Tune in to Studio Brussel or listen to the mixes afterwards - over and over and over again - on the StuBru website.
Enjoy your summer!
18-05-2009 - Studio calls
I will be performing my last Au Cinema gig this Thursday in Bruges, Belgium.
It may sound strange, but I’ve been really looking forward to this day. I’m hoping for a great vibe and lots of support so we can party out the Rockit Fuel chapter together – even if I will enormously miss the welcoming stages and wonderful crowds. I hope to see you in Bruges!
Afterwards, the studio will be my shelter for at least a year. I can’t wait to experiment with new instruments and put together a new album with all of the sounds I’m breathing today.
I would like to thank everyone for the major support throughout the Rockit Fuel times, and hope to see y’all again on the next tour!
In the meantime, enjoy great music and life!
F. Dejongh aka Jerboa

05-09-2008 - Swinging Sin City
Three, two, one: Jerboa is playing his last summer live show tomorrow at the free Villa Pace festival in Sint-Niklaas. That’s it for the Rockit Fuel tour, then!

So come and have one last ball, keep your ear to the ground for new stuff and enjoy the last of the summer breeze!
11-08-2008 - LAST MINUTE!
Summer means last-minute offers on good times, so of course Jerboa could not stay behind!
Our good man has a busy Friday coming up: first he'll be playing live at the Herbakkers Festival in Eeklo, and afterwards he'll hit the decks at Finding Nebo, that most wonderful of party boats near Gent-Dampoort. That's right: all that is happening this Friday, the 15th of August.
Can't make it?
Then why don't you come down to Feest In Het Park next friday, to catch Jerbs and Teknar performing an exclusive Au Cinéma set? It's your only chance to see it this summer! Or try to do all three: it's the best way to understand what Jerboa is all about!
In any case: have fun and enjoy the summer!
