Beat Merchants drop ‘Africa EP’ on V Recordings
Kicking off 2020 with some fresh vibes for a new decade the Beat Merchants show their versatility, and Jubbz and Juiceman have crafted something really special with this unique 4 track project. The ‘Africa EP’ is brimming with vibes, energy and originality and moves between tear out dancefloor cuts and experimental tribal riddims with ease.
In their own right, Jubbz (aka Supply & Demand) and Juiceman are icons of jungle, drum & bass and beyond. They’ve already racked up a lifetime’s worth of accomplishments across deejaying, production, emceeing, and more. And yet, somehow, with Beat Merchants, they’ve geared up and are ready to revolutionise once again.
The Beat Merchants’ story is also intimately connected to the V Recordings family of labels. Bryan Gee and Jumpin Jack Frost’s imprints have showcased tunes like Supply & Demand’s “Jah Music” and “Delicious”, as well as Juiceman’s “Together” and his seminal remix of the Roni Size classic “It’s a Jazz Thing”. Touching on flavours of jungle and liquid, plus more category-resistant twists of style, both Jubbz and Juiceman have built an extensive discography of distinctive DnB productions.
One of the most exciting D&B production outfits to emerge in recent times, ‘Africa EP’ is just the tip of the iceberg, so expect to see and hear a lot more of the Beat Merchants over the next 12 months!
Beat Merchants ‘Africa EP’ is released on 7th February 2020 via V Recordings. Check out ‘Mbe Mbe’ below and grab it from here!
