Ladies and Gentlemen: I present to you a jazzy, hip-hop, funky, earthy, and electronic sounding album entitled TRES. Picture this: The word TRES in Spanish means 'three', and the same word in French means 'very'. Mmmmmmm, this presents a dilemma for me. Should I consider this album to be the 'very' one or the 'third' one? Well I tell you what....... I'll take both. This album has the sounds that I enjoy listening too that I basically don't find flourishing in my part the world. But that's who I am: a thinker outside of the box. Ever since I was boy, I used to imagine that I would be able to create a song or many songs that people would understand and like to listen too. Now, that dream has come true. TRES is guaranteed to do one of three things: make you think, enlighten your understanding of my style of music, or make you dance . Either way you're gonna like what you hear. The album is really special to me, not to say that the others weren't special too, but I gave this one a unique touch. The people that are featured on this album came from my time hanging around poets, producers, rappers, singers, and musicians. I'll give you a little background of who they are.... DJ 4 REAL- Is my brother, music and business partner and one of the producers of Triptych Music Group. He is credited for co-producing two of the tracks on this album. Keep doing what you're doing man. They will soon realize that this is 'serious music for serious people'. STAR 45 - comes from the BERMUDA TRI group, he contributes that hard core reggae vocal sound that can be compared to similar Jamaican dancehall toaster in the music biz today. Yagga Yagga....Inna de Matrix..Nuff respect Don. DOUBLE J.- also of the BERMUDA TRI group, first appeared on my second album, JOURNEY THROUGH. Now he's continuing his style of hip hop delivery that I find highly addictive using his native dialect at times. CRYPTIC - also of BERMUDA TRI, was inspired to flow on REASONS UNKNOWN after listening to it for the first time. After learning this, I decided I had to let him do his thing, and showcase his hip hop / reggae brand. L-BOOGIE- of the BERMUDA TRI crew, possesses that sensuous vocal tone that I needed to hear. Her mind blowing poetry is in a league of it's own. Much Love, Sistah ! Rounding out the group is SYNAPSE who is without a doubt thee most important and integral part of BERMUDA TRI and this album. Synapse is rapper and poet, but he's also a producer and sound engineer that has developed this highly prized skill that can take him to far away places beyond the sandy shorelines of Bermuda. Thanks Bro. Moving on, we come to CARLOS RICHARDSON, a guitarist that brought a funky rock edge to my music. He's definitely a talented brother with a Fender, no doubt. Creeping in, but making his presence known is a young MC who I met at CHEWSTICK Neo- Griot here in Bermuda. He certainly has a swagger in the way he brings his potent hip hop lyrics over beats and sounds. Doc Fabulous accompanies BLAC as the singer on THE TIME IS NOW !!! Keep the party jumpin' man. Lastly but by no means the least is the always lovely and talented songstress JOY T. BARNUM. I have worked with Joy on a several occasions, and when I told her that I was working on something that needs her vocals on it, she jumped at the chance and said..... I'll do it. Joy, you are the shining jewel in Bermudian Music. I am so humbled that you've graced me with your musical abilities on TRES. Love you much girl !!! So as you can see, TRES is a beautiful project that certainly requires more than one listening to fully receive a sense of what I've created. To my fans around the world enjoy this one, and get ready to welcome other fans and casual listeners into our family. And to those of you who may not know who I am let this collection of songs serve as a deep understanding of who I am musically....now. So sit down, lean back, put on some headphones, and plug into TRES. Love life...Love music Khadijo.
