Juls has produced major records for artists like Mr. Eazi, Burna Boy, Goldlink, Masego, Kojey Radical, Stonebwoy and a host of others. During his Q&A at ADE Beats, Juls will discuss how Accra and the U.K. shaped him as producer, his unique role in the successful African pop music scene, and how he developed his extremely influential sound as a producer in-depth.
