“All are included, children, nerds, elderly and religious persons. This is a soca hit for everyone. No one is excluded,” says artiste Defprince! He wants everyone to feel and spread the joy of love, consideration, gratitude and happiness with his 2018 soca ‘Feeling Good‘ which he says was inspired through good vibes.
Usually, Defprince! would have a strong feeling about a social matter, feel inclined to comment on it through music, and in most cases, the lyrical content would be created before the rhythm or beat. This time, however, he says, “The process was a bit different as the primary emphasis was for the vibe in the music rendering the lyrics as secondary. The whole idea was for EVERYONE to spread joy, celebrate, and FEEL GOOD in any little quest they may encounter.”
The artiste behind ‘Feeling Good’
Defprince! was born in Belmont, Port of Spain. He has been a Visual Arts teacher under the Ministry of Education for the past sixteen years. He enjoys an occasional game of chess, listening to and creating music, watching and creating movies, and art.
He says that he deliberately stays away from songs that are limited to the festive season. “I believe that music along with the messages is eternal, it should be available and useful throughout the entire year, now, yesterday and even in the future,” he says.
Reviews and interviews
‘Feeling Good’ was launched in October 2017 with 100% positive reviews thus far from the listening public. Defprince! was interviewed by DJs on four local radio stations who also gave him positive feedback.
