Juls is a British-based producer who has helped define the sound of Afrobeats in the past few years, working with artists including Burna Boy, Maleek Berry, and Mr. Eazi, with whom he co-exec produced the Life is Eazi: Accra to Lagos album in 2017.
Today he steps out from behind the scenes and puts himself at the front of things with new single "Normal," a bass-heavy collaboration with fellow Londoner, Kojey Radical and his first with new label Lost Ones. The video for the track is premiering above and catches both Juls and Kojey bug-eyed as they run through the fast-paced and relentless tune.
"Normal" is the first taste of a forthcoming full-length Juls project and a clear indication that his production skills operate beyond Afrobeats sound he's made his name creating. Having grown up between Clapton, east London and the Ghanaian capital of Accra, there are many musical influences bubbling under the grimy and hard-hitting beat that Kojey Radical eats alive.
“I don’t want to be the go-to guy when you just want afrobeats,” Juls told The FADER via email. “I grew up listening to a lot of music. With this project that I’m working on, I want to show different elements of what I’m doing.”
