About the Artists:
Hailing from St. Lucia & Dominica respectively, the pair formed a solid bond and partnership in the wake of acknowledging their mutual passion for their Caribbean culture and infusing the distinct sounds into the UK market. Their journey started back in 2008 with the release of their first Soca Single 'West Indies', Lutenants seemed to amass huge interest in their talented performances, harmonious lyrics and collaborative tone.
The duo are determined to distribute their music across the channels and convince the world that Urban Caribbean music, UK Soca, is a sound to be respected and enjoyed beyond the UK carnival season. Several of their tracks have created much of a stir within the Europe & the Caribbean, with such hits as 'Push Back', 'Confusing Whine' & 'Betray' to name just a few. Their music has stretched from the UK to France, Germany, Trinidad and Dominica, creating a worldwide buzz that is dying to know just who Lutenants are. 'Season after season the responses to the releases have been growing, we're very happy with the progress' says the Dominican Flawless.
While seemingly going from strength to strength, from performing at Notting Hill Carnival in London on numerous occasions, to being placed third in the 'UK Soca Monarch' competition, nothing excited these guys more than placing themselves in studio and creating a new vibe on a riddim.
But the ingenious pair's work ethic and devotion to their music is illustrated through the quality & quantity of their releases, and with energy and such humility, ended up after deep thoughts in 2014 while the crew decided to stop making music.
