Large Up Interview: Jus Now Are Taking Soca Back to The Future

Words by Marcha M. Johnson, Photos by Arnaldo James— jus-now-sam-lazabeam-2

Amidst the surge of soca tunes released for this year’s Trinidad Carnival, you may have noticed, on tracks such as Bunji Garlin’s “Truck on D Road” and Machel Montano’s “Junction,” the emergence of a fresh yet nostalgic sound that immediately commands your attention with signature percussion and authoritative bass. If you were paying attention, you might have even sampled a bit of this phenomenon last year when Bunji Garlin released the song “Savage.” We decided it was time to unmask the masterminds behind this new evolution in soca: Trinidad’s Keshav Singh aka LAZABeam and the UK’s Sam “Interface” Chadburn, collectively known as Jus Now.

Picture yourself under the Tobago moonlight grooving to melodic guitar strums from some of the most creative bands in T&T, dancing yourself to a frenzy as the vibe switches up with each performance. This is a pretty good idea of what you will get at the After Jazz Fringe Festival happening in Tobago from April 25-27.

If you haven’t noticed from most of our recent posts it’s officially Carnival time in the Caribbean today and the music and vibes are flowing like rum around here. Grab these mixes to get into the spirit of the fete, but don’t hold us responsible if you end up wining on a co-worker or stranger on the train.
