EDITORS’ NOTES

Assassin eschews his usual dancehall backing for an exclusively reggae set, where his raspy voice and expressive lyrics add gravitas to solemn, reflective topics. Like fellow gravel-throated deejay Buju Banton, the toaster delivers his vocals with booming authority, whether over stout one-drop riddims (“Stronger,” "Feel Highrie”), retro rub-a-dub grooves (“Mix Up”), or even spry ska shuffles (“No Slave," with Chronixx). All are enhanced by striking live musicianship, and the vintage ‘80s-style arrangements of “Reggae Origin”—plus those contemplative verses—epitomize Assassin’s heartfelt embrace of Jamaica’s gift to the world.

#BroughtBackOurReggae

After over a month I am still tryin to determine which track is my favorite. Everytime I listen to the album in its entirety, I discover new words, meanings and even visions that have been craftfully placed on the canvas of the the most melodic beats I've heard in a loooong time. Agent Sasco has definitely brought back meaningful music and has proved that music still lives in Jamaica, and that Dancehall/Reggae can have more depth than just rhyming to a beat. Thank you for bringing back our reggae!!!
