African music has taken the world by storm and leading the melodic industry invasion is producer and DJ, Juls .
The prolific producer, born Julian Nicco Annan, better known as Juls or Juls Baby, spent most of his youth in Ghana despite being born in now hipster habituated, East London. Juls describes the the move as the catalyst that cultivated his interest in music, with the eclectic sounds and cultural patriotism exposing him to a whole new world. His style of production is described as ‘Afrovibes’ and is deeply rooted in highlife and afro beats as well as other genres including hip-hop, dancehall and afro house.
He's most popular for pioneering the new Afrobeats sound championed by rising star Mr Eazi producing hits such as Skin Tight, Hollup, Anointing and Bankulize.
Nominations include Ghana Music Awards UK Producer of the year, Afrimma Awards and Mobo Best African Act.
