Lost Files is a column dedicated to celebrating older projects that might have flown under the radar when they were released. This week, we dig into British-Ghanaian producer Juls' stunning debut and attempt to own the romantic, R&B-flavored side of Afropop – Leap of Faith.
In 2015, Mr Eazi broke into the mainstream consciousness with his single “Skintight” featuring Efya. A sort of anomaly at that point, it was one of the first songs in a new trend that saw mellowed out, slower tempo songs become club hits; a true pioneer of the afrobeats style we have come to know and love. While Mr Eazi was getting the major plaudits for the hit song, the real brains behind it was British-Ghanaian producer, Juls. The soft, bouncy beat was the perfect platform for Eazi and Efya’s singing, all combining to deliver an infectious hit song.
