AGENT SASCO Agent Sasco (Assassin), one of Jamaica’s most-revered musicians revels in his creativeindependence. As artist and executive producer, Agent Sasco has been grounded in these rolesfor his masterpiece albums recorded at Diamond Studios—which he also owns and operates.“I’m internally driven, not by external forces,” declares Agent Sasco. Every two years Sasco has released an album:Theory of Reggaetivity(2016),Hope River(2018), andSasco vs. Assassin(2020).
The lyrical titan strikes again and recruits Bounty Killer and Kabaka Pyramid on a new remix for his summer anthem “Loco.” Deep in the midst of Jamaica’s lockdown in May, Agent Sasco took to a deserted street of Kingston to film the video for “Loco.” The track produced by Romain “Teflonzincfence” Arnett is bolstered by the pounding of a static bass drum, complimented by a frenzy of hip-hop-influenced scratches by Brooklyn’s DJ Treats. Agent Sasco sprayed his stream of consciousness about the off-center nature of crazy things in the world.
This monstrous first single speaks volumes and will be available on his upcoming EP slated for release later this year. The new remix takes the original to the next level. This heavy-hitting collaboration will also appear on Red Light, the latest mixtape project by Federation Sound & DJ Treats (featuring remixes by Tom Cruz a.k.a. GLDN EYE), also out today. This new compilation highlights the Jamaican artist’s versatility with dancehall and hip-hop.
