Speaking to Philip Edusei of Unorthodox Reviews about his experience working with Ghanaian music icons King Promise and Mugeez Juls disclosed: “It was a joint that had been sitting there for about a week. Sent it through to King (Promise) and he hit me back the same day… My guy Fiifi sent it to Mugeez and he loved it immediately. It was pretty straight forward.”
Having collaborated with musical acts the world over Juls looks to ‘take it back home’ on this record as he added: “I wanted to create a modern highlife record with a love concept. That’s the idea I had all along but never got to it… I’m so grateful because this is hopefully going to be one of my greatest ‘Ghanaian’ prominent records ever!”
More on the artist:
Born and raised in East London and Accra, Ghana Juls- real name Julian Nicco-Annan has experienced the best of both worlds and channels his lessons in his music.
Arguably the most prolific producer on the UK Afrobeat scene, the British born Ghanaian is credited for modifying the notoriously frenetic genre into a more mellow one by heavily infusing jazz and highlife samples in his production.
He is mostly known for the exponential rise of Afrobeats star Mr Eazi producing major hits such as “Bankulize”, “Skin Tight”, “Hollup”, “Shito”; and his critically acclaimed EPs “Leap of Faith” and “Ojekoo”, and most recently “Colours”.
