Lokust isn't done yet! Past Trauma, his new evocative single!
Fans of Lokust Luciano may know his successful two part album, The Sideshows Manuscript. These are compilations that showcase the best that the Kingpin has to offer! There’s some good news on the way for people who enjoyed those albums… The Sideshows Manuscript: The Lost Pages is OUT NOW!

But we’re gonna cover that in-depth soon. For now, here’s a track from the album that was released as a single. It’s the crown jewel, the song that encompasses the album as a whole, so the next logical step is to elevate the track to where it deserves to be! That track is Past Trauma.

This is a mellow head-nodder with a serious message, much like the recently released Coping Mechanism. “My biggest enemy would truly be my mind”, Lokust chooses to let the listener in to the pain that his past relationships have left him to deal with. Domestic violence and abuse is a hot topic right now, especially with the Depp v Heard case recently coming to a close, so Lokust Luciano opening up about the events that gave him this trauma is a refreshing continuation of this honesty. These lyrics cut deep and make you think hard about the loved ones in your life, and whether you’re experiencing the affection you deserve. Lokust survived his ordeal because he knew he deserved better, but he carried his past traumas with him. Sometimes, you can’t forget when something has happened to you, but you can just accept that it has and move on. That’s what Lokust has done in this song, and although it still hurts, he’s living his best life now, which is what counts for the most. Respect to Mr. Luciano and his fire new single!

Coping Mechanism - the harsh look inside the struggle of Lokust and Down3r!
Lokust Luciano and DL Down3r have become closer and closer as time has gone on, and to cement this, they’re bringing us a hot new single! Presenting COPING MECHANISM!

This is a frank introspective piece, giving us all candid insight into what Lokust and Down3r have gone through. The song’s format manifests as Lokust telling the listener about his struggles with drug abuse, and the excuses he gives himself and others in order to continue using drugs as a crutch. Then DL comes in, and effectively sits Lokust down to have a serious conversation about the dark path he’s going down, from one friend to another, from one victim of drug abuse to another. The message of the song is clear: the problems that can be found in life are worth facing directly, when the alternative is avoiding them via drug abuse. Avoiding one’s problems through drug abuse is far worse than just facing them. It simply adds to the problems you’ll have to eventually work through or die trying, once the illusion is broken and it all comes crashing down. DL is known for songs like this, so it’s great to see Lokust teaming up and pitching in for this one too. This duo is making waves, and we’re looking forward to whatever they bring out next, whether it be a sombre song like this one, or a classic party anthem banger. But if you’re out of the loop, who are these guys?
