Noted Jamaican producer and studio engineer, Dale Dizzle Virgo, is confident that the tracks he has produced for Jeffrey Campbell aka Agent Sasco; on his new Hope River album will intrigue fans worldwide.
The producer, based in Portland Jamaica out of the popular Geejam studios, has been cultivating beats for over 14 years. Through the years he has worked with a plethora of local and overseas acts including; Cecile, Gyptian, Chronixx, Christopher Martin, Kim Nain, Rihanna, Drake, Sean Kingston and Florence and the Machine. This is the first time the chart topping producer has produced for Agent Sasco directly.
“I have known Sasco for years and worked on a few projects with him for other producers but didn’t get to really collaborate with him on a full music production level. When he decided to build his studio, I saw it as an opportunity to lend my production skills to this project which is poised to be a game changer and a monumental project,” Virgo explained
Dizzle holds both engineering credits on a few tracks on the album as well as co-production credits for ‘Legacy’ and ‘ So Blessed’ and full production credits on the single ‘Change’. Dizzle believes the sound of these tracks will be what stands out to fans.
“With the tracks on the Hope river project I consider them fusion reggae, dancehall and hip hop, mixing specific Jamaican musical flavours with international sounds. Each track pulls from different genres of music to create an eclectic sound,” Virgo added
Dizzle also has high commendation for Agent Sasco stepping out of the box for this new album project and has no qualms about working with him again on future singles.
“It was great working with Sasco, It felt great that he was musically open minded with us going to the next level productions wise rather than sticking to the norm. Already fans appreciate the newness, edgy and fresh sound of the tracks,” Virgo commented
The Hope River Album was officially released on August 31 2018 and hosted a successful listening party last Saturday night in Kingston Jamaica.
Dizzle has a few projects in the works for his DZL Record label including a single for Urban Pop Reggae artiste Kim Nain called ‘Deal Wid It’ set to be released on November 9.
