Following their collaboration on the popular track ‘TeefTeff’, award-winning DJ and producer, Juls and Banku Music Pioneer, Mr Eazi are back to heat up the summer with their new track, ‘Cake’. This is the latest single off Juls’ upcoming album, ‘Colors’, which will be released on July 26th. The new single serves as a follow up to his recently released single, ‘Slow Down’, featuring Jamaican Dancehall DJ, Agent Sasco.
Born, Julian Nicco Annan, Juls grew up in London before his move to Ghana for secondary school. He describes the move as the true catalyst that cultivated his interest in music, with the eclectic sounds and cultural patriotism exposing him to a whole new world filled with endless possibilities.
Growing up between Clapton, East London and the Ghanaian capital of Accra, gave Juls the ability to fuse together an array of genres such as jazz, hip-hop, grime and garage to create unique beats and sounds. Since 2012, Juls has been instrumental to the West African influence in music, which has become highly popularised over the last few years. He has established his sound through collaborations with the likes of Mr. Eazi, Kojo Funds, Maleek Berry, Burna Boy, and Wande Coal.
On his new track, ‘Cake’ Juls’ bouncy beat accompanied by Eazi’s melodic harmonies, produces a tune that you can’t help but dance to. It features traditional African percussion along with the lively riffs of an electric guitar. ‘Cake’ is without a doubt a love song, with Juls and Eazi describing their feelings of lust and desire around a special someone. Although both artists tend to be slow-paced with their genres, both Juls and Eazi flip the script on ‘Cake’ with a minimal but up-tempo beat.
‘Cake’ is the third single to be released from Juls’ upcoming album ‘Colors’. Tracks, ‘Slow Down’ and ‘Maayaa’ ft Tiggs Da Author and alté rebel, Santi have both been met with positive reception and excitement.
If ‘Cake’ is an indication of what to expect from the album ‘Colours’, there is no doubt that this body of work will feature multiple summer anthems!
