Super-talented underground dancehall group LNJ makes big splash in music industry
Super-talented underground dancehall group LNJ is revolutionising how dancehall is produced, promoted, and marketed.
LNJ comprises three members: First Born, who is based in London; the New York-based CV; and Jamaican-based brilliant, young producer-deejay, X-Facta. The LNJ acronym stands for London, New York, and Jamaica, where each of the members are currently based.
"We have been doing our thing underground for a while now, but we want to take a step forward into the music industry mainstream," CV explained.
CV recently released a music video called Ace Of Spade and Dom Perignon, which is now playing on HYPE TV, CVM, and CVM Plus. First Born has released a vibesy music called Out There, which is receiving great rotation on CVM, HYPE, and CVM Plus.
"We have been working hard and the buzz is growing with the recent release of First Born's album, Lyrical Hot Steppa. The album has got over 500 downloads in less than a month since its release on January 25, 2014," CV said.
A key member of LNJ, First Born is an outspoken young man who was crowned twice as the LDM King (Lyrical Death Match), an underground dancehall clash competition in the United Kingdom. He recently launched a number of scathing attacks on Alkaline. One of those songs, World Boss Copycat, has generated several thousands views on YouTube.
The third member of LNJ is the multi-talented Melvin 'X-Facta,' Morris who is a producer, songwriter, and dancehall artiste. X-Facta has written and co-written many songs for many artistes such as Shawn Storm's My Life. X-Facta is currently focusing all his efforts on his new single, Stumbling Block which has been doing well on FM
