Bad Mind Never Prevails! That’s a fact!
Let this phrase settle in your mind! These words are lyrics featured in the first single from LFS Music titled “No Weapon”; five newly added faces to the Caribbean music scene. Already, their sound is causing much chatter in the musical sphere. It makes sense that it would; their promising talents individually make their unit quite distinct.
Frontlined by award-winning songwriter turned performer, Nkosi “Kosi” Blackburne and his brother Jabari “Jabz” Blackburne, LFS also includes a professional drummer (Jamal “Kiddo” Joseph), Producer/Sound Engineer (Julius “Whixxkid” Le Gendre) and Disc Jockey (Curtis “DJ Toonkie” Julien). Their belief, in the paramount importance of positivity, motivated the use of an excerpt from one of the most popular biblical verses; “No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper”.
No Weapon’ is filled with positive connotations that accompany the happiest music in the world; Soca. “All them try they go fail”, “Try again”, “Dash them with holy water” and “Once we have faith we straight” are four of the many phrases that speak to triumph and faith. The track was written by Nkosi and Jabari Blackburne and produced by Twin Island studios with additional production by Kasey Phillips of Precision Productions.
As they prepare to hit the ground running for Carnival 2018, they are guided by one specific equation; Loyalty + Focus = Success (LFS). No reasoning is required to indulge in positivity, but if one is mandatory; look at the world.
Nkosi Blackburne will now add the title of singer/performer to his resume with the release of this latest single “No Weapon”. Having perfected the art of songwriting he has maintained a healthy admiration for music from a very young age. After successfully writing for the likes of many accomplished artiste Including Lyrikal, Preedy, Skinny Fabulous, 5 Star Akil, K Rich he is ready to make this transition to the stage.
Singing from a very young age Jabari Blackburne aka Jabz always had a passion for music. Now embarking on this journey with his brothers at his side he is poised to present himself and the band in extraordinary fashion.
Julius “Whixxkid” Le Gendre is a producer/engineer who found the love and intricacy of music as a child. He entered the music industry as a DJ and started creating beats which led him to his debut on the Soca scene with his co-production on Lyrikal’s hit single “Cloud 9”.
Curtis “DJ Toonkie” Julien, was always fond of music from a very tender age. He first tapped into his love for music by singing calypso while attending primary school. As he grew older he switched paths within the music industry and became a DJ. “Toonkie” now has a show on Team Soca; one of the largest internet radio stations and continues to play throughout the tri-state area.
Jamal “Kiddo” Joseph is a member of the four-time panorama champion (Pan Elders). With frequent Best Village competition appearances and victories as a part of Neptune School Of Arts, Kiddo has been in tune with music and rhythm for years. Honing his craft on live drums from years of being in a gospel band the time has come for him to display these skills in the Soca world.
