Review by Reggaeville.com
In 2008, Joggo, a young artist from Amsterdam with roots in Surinam, took the world‘s dancehalls by storm with his big tune Beware on Massive B‘s Kingdom riddim. Two things defined his life as a youth: soccer and Reggae music. Just like his elder brother Clarence Seedorf, the world-famous soccer player who is currently playing for AC Milan, he pursued a career in soccer. It seemed natural, as both their parents played soccer. Obviously very gifted, Joggo played in AJAX‘ youth team. But his love for Reggae music ultimately prevailed.

His first album, Modern Rockers Vol. 1, shows that this decision was for the benefit of us. Eleven strong tunes constitute this solid Modern Roots album. Recorded mostly in the Netherlands and Surinam with Dutch musicians, Dutch Roots specialists Not Easy At All Productions contributed a riddim. Two others originate from the Feueralarm Band, known as Nosliw‘s backing band. DJ Play Me Some Roots fittingly is the first tune, paving the way for what is to come. As many other conscious artists have done in recent years, Joggo asks why Roots music does not get the recognition it deserves. Strong Like Lion ranks among the strongest tunes, a combination with Reggae workaholic Turbulence and Jah Decko with an uplifting message of Rasta advice to leading a good life.

The album‘s only other combination is with fellow Dutch artist Mr Patze, I Am Blessed, a mid-tempo lovers tune that should work nicely for rootical sound systems. Lovers tunes make up the majority here. The best of them, I Wonder, has been produced by Joggo himself. The rest is conscious, uplifting tunes. Peace & Love is a real favorite here, soundwise faintly reminiscent of Chalice‘s Pop Reggae.

Joggo‘s debut album is a good choice if you look for something easy as Sunday morning. It is not leightweight though, neither musicwise nor lyricswise. Watch out for Joggo!
