What started out as a hobby soon turned into a career in the trance scene. His popular works include remixes and original trance productions since landing his first recording contract in 2001. Although it is common practice in electronic genres for artists to use several aliases, Jezper is particularly notorious for having over a dozen pseudonyms. They include Scarab, First & Andre (together with his brother), Ozone, Moon, Inner State, J., J.E.Z.P., J.L.N.D., JZ, Loken, Mono, Narthex, One Man Army, Parc, Rah, and Mika J.

In June 2009, Jezper began working on his first full-length album, We Might Fall. The album was released on February 21, 2011.
Additionally, he is hosting a monthly radio show called Re-Mix on the online radio station Afterhours.FM, which was later renamed to "Touchdown Airbase".
In 2005 together with his brother, Andre Söderlund, composed the anthem of Sensation event in Belgium under the name First and Andre with "Widescreen".
Jezper made a personal announcement on his Airbase website on October 1 2008 stating that on September 27 2008 he got engaged to his girlfriend, Jessica Ramboldt, who provided lyrics as Floria Ambra for Airbase's single "Denial", "Interfere" and "Wonders".
Jezper is also one of the three original creators of the dance music website Trance.nu. Jezper is also credited with the base layout and graphics on the Trance.nu web site.
Aside from his musical career he's also known for being a gear head. Together with longtime friend Tommie Podzemski, he hosts the weekly Swedish podcast "Slashat" where tech, IT, gadgets and web related news are being discussed.
On March 5, 2010, it was reported that Jezper emailed Apple CEO Steve Jobs directly, asking if iPhone to iPad tethering was possible. The answer, directly from Steve Jobs, was "No".
