Jus Now, the production duo of LAZAbeam & DJ Sam Interface is an ever-evolving music outfit that continues to fuse the sound of their hometowns Port-of-Spain (Trinidad) and Bristol (United Kingdom), respectively. The group’s latest Way Up EP is their third release through the Feel Up Records label, founded by Jillionaire of Major Lazer. Jus Now’s melting pot of sound, known for a rich palette of horns, drums, and steel pan drives the 7-track project. Way Up's lead single, "Dun D Place," is accompanied by a provocative music video filmed in Tokyo, Japan. The new Jus Now video, directed by Tom Swindell, was premiered by The FADER. [QUOTE ARTICLE] Youtube: http://smarturl.it/JusNowDDP Swindell's footage is a very rare look at authentic Caribbean culture embraced by the thriving community of Japanese dancehall queens Mai, Chiaki Iida and Rudy E, plus former dancehall king Cornbread a.k.a. Jaken. The stage for a perfect cast of characters is set on Halloween where extravagant costumes and frenetic dance moves, and choreography in the middle of bustling intersections are on full display. Although Jus Now and Stylo G's parts were filmed in a London studio, his performance is a seamless fit. Following the precedent of "Dun D Place," each song from Way Up is just as uptempo in rhythm. The EP boasts two major contributions by soca heavy-hitters Kerwin Prescott and Chalmer John.
