Juls Links With Odeal On ‘Hold You Down’

The buzzy producer is back...

Grammy-nominated producer and DJ Juls unveils his first release of the year, ‘Hold You Down’, featuring rising Alté star Odeal

On ‘Hold You Down’, Juls’ and Odeal bring forth an understated prelude to the summer; the subtlety and sway of Juls’ mellow instrumental the foundation for Odeal to explore a simmering tension with his romantic paramour.

Speaking on how the single came to fruition, Juls says: “Odeal is one of the most talented artists I’ve ever come across in the last few years. We spoke about potentially working for time but I wasn’t ready. I have fallen in love with this new sound he’s been experimenting with so it felt right.”

‘Hold You Down’ signifies a new chapter in a near decade-long career. Recent highlights for Juls have included the release of last year’s sublime ‘Palmwine Diaries’ EP (which spawned an in-depth feature with BBC Africa about the project), and a sold-out weekly residency at Jazz Cafe coinciding with Black History Month.
