Projexx & Juls - Caution

With a handful of viral singles, a major feature on an internationaly acclaimedl artiste’s Grammy-nominated album, and an audiovisual catalogue that makes it look as though he’s never experienced a lockdown, Projexx’s rise to prominence has been anything but accidental. The musical prodigy has spent the last few years developing his melodic sound, and since signing to American music giant, Warner Records, his spot in the pantheon of modern contemporary pop, mainstream and crossover music has become a sure thing.

The son of producer Lloyd ‘John John’ James and grandson of the legendary King Jammy, Projexx “was raised on the highest quality of recordings and had no choice but to listen and make quality music that can cross over”. His poetic musings navigate love, lust, infidelity and spiralling emotions, and the latest singles Caution and Turn Around, released simultaneously, reflect the extraordinary chemistry between Projexx and internationally acclaimed British-Ghanaian producer Juls.

He recently performed on the first ever AFROWAVETO Festival in Toronto, with the likes of Sean Paul, Dynesti, Zenesoul and Stalk Ashley, and now has many ideas whirling around his mind that he wants to turn into action to spread his roots globally.

The sound of Reggae is widely recognised because of its acoustically formed bass and drum downbeat, and its offbeat rhythm section. With such a diversity in style it is also considered complex enough to attract progressively minded musicians. A music that has a strong association with dance covering a variety of styles while also offering a background beat for those sharing Biblical chants of Zion. It is hard to ignore Reggae’s influence and how it interacts with our day-to-day lives. Shared as background music for films and advertising driving its heavy bass lines literally felt wherever rock and pop are played. Reggae has an affinity with mainstream British pop; recognised within the hip-hop culture and considered “cool” by those with no connection to Jamaica. As lovers of reggae my aim is to build a community of reggae followers that can share thoughts, news, events as listeners, artists, DJ’s and hosts.
