Cyah Help It will surely raise the bar for cross-genre innovation and tear up the dance from London to Port-of-Spain and everywhere in between.

Jus Now – the alliance of two music fanatics previously separated by 4,500 miles – were brought together by a shared love of bass, rum and parties. The bi-product of their connection is a brand new EP Cyah Help It, via Feel Up Records.

The title track features Trinidad’s ragga/soca star Bunji Garlin and London’s grime/R&B fusion pioneer Ms. Dynamite. Given their geographical differences, they manage to traverse each other’s sounds thanks to the worldly backdrop provided by Jus Now’s versatile production style. Over bhangra-fused beats, the self-proclaimed “Viking of Soca” and England’s award-winning lyricist drum up a hard-hitting call-to-action anthem that effortlessly merges both of their worlds.Jus Now is the musical bond between UK-based drum and bass producer Sam Interface and Trinidadian producer and percussionist Keshav (aka Lazer Beam), who met in Bristol in 2010. Together, they offer an exhilarating fusion of vibrant island beats with the bottom-heavy sound of the British Underground.

Throughout the 5-song EP, Jus Now continues to bridge this musical gap – whether it is revamping soca artist Olatunji’s T&T carnival hit “Bam Bam” into a dancefloor banger for the masses on “Badder Than,” mixing reggae one-drop and electronic rhythms on “Culture” featuring Coreysan or channeling 2016 Trinidad Carnival vibes with fresh futuristic beats on “Wave Something” featuring the island’s own Bunji Garlin and Kerwin Prescott.
