Juls may have made a name for himself spinning records and making Afropop, but he put his understanding of hip-hop to the test for his latest single, “Maintain”. And with vocal contributions from Ghanaian rapper, Kwesi Arthur, “Maintain” hits all of Hip-hop’s core points; Gritty introspection over pop samples.
Produced by Juls, “Maintain” opens with thirty seconds of highlife music reminiscent of unending garden parties. He samples Alhaji K. Frimpong’s highlife classic, “Kyenkyen Bi Adi M’awu” for the hip-hop number but introduces heavy drums and guitar riffs. Kwesi Arthur describes his life, mind-set, ambition and steady rise in the hip-hop game with picturesque imagery using a mix of English and his indigenuous tongue.
