Jus Now

Featured artist

Jus Now is the vibrant and exhilarating fusion of Trinidadian Soca rhythms with the sub heavy sound of the UK Underground. Sam Interface is one half of the duo, a versatile Drum and Bass producer who has collaborated with the likes of DJ DIE, TC and Eddie K, on releases and remixes for esteemed labels such as Shogun Audio, Clear Skyz, Hospital and Metalheadz. Lazer Beam is the other side, a well-known percussionist and producer in Trinidad, who has toured the world spreading the Trini carnival fever and established himself as a producer by remixing the likes of L-Vis 1990 and Major Lazer.

The pair met by chance through a mutual friend in Bristol in 2010, whilst Lazer Beam was visiting from Trinidad. Their first EP One Time in 2013 to wide acclaim and are now working with established Trinidadian stars such as Bunji Garlin & Nival plus some secret superstar vocalists from the Caribbean and the UK.
