One of the hottest Jamaican artists, formerly known as Assassin and globally respected for his unique blend of reggae & dancehall, brings his new album “Hope River” to Poland.
In 2000 Spragga Benz recorded a song where Sasco received his first big break. This was the beginning of a long list of collaborations for Sasco that branched into four studio albums and over 350 singles. Collaborating with Grammy Award-winning artists Kanye West (“I’m In It”) and Kendrick Lamar (“The Blacker The Berry”), as well as dancehall and reggae legends like Shaggy, Bounty Killer, Buju Banton, Josie Wales, Richie Stephens, Freddie McGregor, Marcia Griffiths and Beres Hammond, to name a few, Sasco is always evolving to keep his sound fresh. He is also a producer and co-founder of Boardhouse Records. Signed to VP Records in 2004, the deejay released two albums for the label – his debut album “Infiltration” (2005) and a celebration on ghetto life, “Gully Sit’in” (2007). Both were acclaimed by fans and escalated his notability worldwide. His third album “Theory of Reggaetivity” (Germaica Digital 2016) was an all-reggae album with guests like Chronixx. He performed major festivals all over the globe from Europe to Central America, North America to Africa, all over the Caribbean and also in the Far East. Recently he performed at Buju Banton’s famous stadium show “Long Walk to Freedom” in Kingston.
2018 saw Agent Sasco’s latest effort “Hope River”, featuring long list of collaborations, including Stephen Marley, Dre Island, Stonebwoy, Kabaka Pyramid, Spragga Benz, Tony Rebel, Bay-C, Queen Ifrica, Tessanne Chin, Romain Virgo among the others.
You can also hear there Buju Banton’s excerpt from a 2004 interview saying: “I personally feel like the likkle artist name Assassin has a great future ahead of him!”
The music is diverse, from gospel to reggae, hip-hop and dancehall.
Reggaeville.com wrote on it: “It is packed with messages of hope, motivation, diligence, and endurance and reveals a personal side of Sasco that we haven’t heard to that extend before.”
