Brooklyn NY's Desmond drops some pertinent philosophy on us by way of his song "Losers Never Win," a slow dub groove about victory being a mental (not physical) practice. Besides Desmond's heavy booming voice, the song is supported primarily by a fat bassline, some sassy backup vocals, and a beautiful jazzy sax solo. "Losin is in the mind, and losers never win/ it calls for lots of work and never giving in/ don't lose the race before you begin/ cause losin is in the mind, and losers never win." For dub/reggae-- a musical heritage that seems to be frequently about love, good vibes, and staying relaxed-- "Losers Never Win" stands out to me as exceptionally unique and bold in its singular lyrical message, not to mention possessing an unusual (though very talented) voice at the helm, and a wonderful backup groove.

"Losers Never Win" will be stuck in my head because

Desmond's rich and dark vibratto

I would add "Losers Never Win" to a playlist called
