The versatile musical dichotomy is at the heart of UK independent artist, Dr L.K’s music. It could be a metaphor for the man himself. On one hand there is an artist whose tireless devotion is entertaining crowds and fan interaction and on the other disparate musical brews which cause both adorations and misunderstandings. In fact, Dr L.K aka Lincoln Kennedy himself, says of his music, “I’m an acquired taste, you’ll either love or hate”, while he delivers doses of music diversity across the genres of R&B, Club and his own unorthodox flow of Hip Hop & Rap music.
Freedom is a word ingrained into Dr L.K’s work ethic, as he writes the lyrics and melodies to his songs, as well as putting together his videos on Youtube. Dr L.K’s latest release is the track, “This Proposal”, where his wait-a-beat delivery enhances the high-flying hooks over a syncopated electronic dance rhythm. The mix between rap & dance on this track even has a very slight touch of the Caribbean sound in its verses.
Dr L.K does not sound like anyone else out there, which will probably make you appreciate his material that much more. This song he sings is about a specific phase in his life. Here he gives you a peek into the importance of his proposal to the person he loves. This track makes you sit up and take notice when you listen to the words. It’s very refreshing to hear a song that is not laced with lyrics full of sexual denigration, and the throwaway materialistic things in life. This brother is singing about being in love, as well as the beauty and importance of having his partner in his life.
If there’s one thing you could say about Dr L.K, it’s that he tries harder than most to do his thing, his way, while forging positive lyrics over great beats provided by some of the best producers around. He is a simple artist, just trying to find his way, without all the star-struck trappings. You can feel his passion for the music, and the fact that his vocal style is ‘love or hate’ original, only sweetens the deal for some. If you haven’t heard his style and don’t know what I’m talking about, checkout the latest single “This Proposal”.
