agent-sasco-album.jpgOn February 19, Assassin aka Agent Sasco released his first studio album in almost a decade entitled The Theory Of Reggaetivity, a marked departure from his dancehall-driven releases - Infiltration (2005) and Gully Sit'n (2007).

From Los Angeles to New York to Kingston - Assassin recorded the album across the globe and worked with a variety of producers - Niko Browne, Diggy British (Protoje), The Drum Keyz, Theo Butler, Sting International, MLMG, Sound Cheq, Silly Walks, W. Thompson and Chimney Records - to provide a live music texture of majestic trumpets, and heavy one-drop bassline rhythms reminiscent of the style pioneered by the genre's legends like Bob Marley, Peter Tosh and Dennis Brown. Assassin also co-produced "Day In Day Out," "J-O-B," "Africa" and "Crazy" under his Sound Age Entertainment.

The album's title, a play on words, makes a nod to Einstein's Theory of Relativity. Setting the tone of the album, the title track and "Reggae Origin," examine the birth of reggae beyond its pioneers.

Assassin's description is more scientific because he questions the possibilities of reggae playing a role in the Big Bang and the vibration of weather patterns as the building blocks of the genre, which inherently are building blocks of life. Given reggae's reputation of being by the people and for the people, he carries the tradition of a messenger by reaching people on a human level, incorporating more live instrumentation and harmonizing than he has done on any of his previous material.
