Combining fretless bass with heavy rock drumming, Numan further refined his dark, sparse, funky-electro style, mixing it with impenetrable, slurred vocals.

Numan recorded and wrote most of the music between January and March 1982, following his infamous round-the-world trip in a light aircraft and a near-death crash onto a British road while co-piloting a spiraling Cessna. 

According to Numan, who was still only 24-years-old at the time, “the round-the-world flight, the plane crash, these were big things that helped me shape a new opinion of myself. Those experiences gave me a self-confidence, a genuine strength that I hadn’t had before.” Twenty years later, the singer enthused, “I still think it’s one of the best albums I’ve made.” I, Assassin’s heavily percussive approach led to several tracks becoming unexpected intruders on American dancefloors, notably the 12” single of “Music For Chameleons” and a specially remixed U.S. version of “White Boys And Heroes.

I, Assassin stands out as a record fiercely propelled by powerful rhythms in songs laced with an earthy cynicism.

“I, Assassin also utilizes the warped elasticity of fretless bass lines underneath his customary monotone vocalizing and abstract lyricism. Highlighted by the upbeat synthetic funk of “We Take Mystery To Bed” & “White Boys”, I, Assassin is an in-depth examination of genuine dance music roots.” - URB Magazine.
