Seeed is a German reggae/dancehall band from Berlin. Founded in 1998, they have become notable in Germany and its neighboring countries. They are the most popular German reggae act next to Cologne's singjay Gentleman. They are considered to be Germany's most successful Reggae group, because they are able to produce soulful music that different people can enjoy. Thus even though their lyrics are often in German, international audiences still enjoy their 'chill' sound. Seeed consists of eleven band members, including three singers, a horn section and a DJ. Seeed is notable for their unusual use of horns. They have worked with Cee-Lo Green, Anthony B, Tanya Stephens, General Degree as well as other Jamaican artists and producers. One can almost always find a popular guest appearance in their music releases. Seeed's lyrics are in German, English and Patois. Their biggest hits in the German Sprachraum were "Dickes B", "Aufstehn", "Ding" and "Music Monks". Although their lyrics are in English and German, most of the songs in German were completely translated into English for the international releases of the Albums Next! and Music Monks
Their first smash hit was "Dickes B", an ode to Berlin. They won three ECHO Awards. With the international versions of Music Monks and Next!, they found broader success in Germany's neighboring countries, especially France. After their initial success with "Dickes B", in the year 2000, they released their first full length album a few months later, in 2001: New Dubby Conquerors.
