Juliyaa is not your average singer-songwriter from London. She’s half Welsh and half Ghanaian and an artist with a heart, last year her 10 Days of Smile campaign saw her performing random acts of kindness to strangers.
Here we present her latest EP, Stars & Dragons which is available as a free download. If you’re on the hunt for some new urban music from an upcoming British female vocalist then she could be the answer to your prayers.
She has aptly coined the phrase Rhythmic Soul to describe her sound. Each track sees Juliyaa deliver layered soulful harmonies infused over high energy beats. For us the stand out track here is Element featuring Frisco from Boy Better Know, the deep-set rolling bass line deserves to be played with the volume cranked way up high. We’ve been smitten with this latest drop ever since our first listen, and it’s made it’s way firmly to the top of our most listen tracks. Be warned, it will do the same to you.
Her sound is mature, beyond her years and the quality of this release is down in part to the excellent set of producers Juliyaa has worked with including Basil Hanson, Antony OTB and Mo-Keyz.
