Last week rockstone-voiced dancehall deejay Assassin aka Agent Sasco dropped his first studio album in almost a decade, and Theory of Reggaetivity marks a departure from most of his previous releases.

Assassin - Theory of ReggaetivityTheory of Reggaetivity is his third album and it’s a pivotal one in his career since it’s almost exclusively dedicated to reggae, sometimes leaning towards hip-hop, with a few amendments and detours. Assassin has aimed to expand and improve the sound of reggae creating his own take on the genre.

The set boasts an incredible and interesting roster of artists, producers and musicians. Raging Fyah provides instrumentation on the powerful Stronger, Chronixx lends his smooth voice to the upbeat Slave no More and Protoje aka Diggy British showcases his production skills on the pulsating Feeling Highrie and Reggae Origin. The brightest shining highlight is however Health & Wealth, on which Assassin spits lyrics over a monstrous version of the mighty Cuss Cuss riddim.

Theory of Reggaetivity is a stellar album and a landmark in Assassin’s career. It’s a reflective and conscious set painting a vivid portrait of reggae and its diverse set of sounds, styles and themes.
