Audio: DJ Juls 'Da Burst of FOKN Bois' Mix


DJ Juls flexes his golden era hip-hop muscles over favored cuts from the pidgin prankster duo in Da Burst of FOKN Bois mix. Juls revisits old and new FOKN joints to create an elongated best-of compilation (or intro) to one of Ghana's most unique crews. For more reworks from Juls check his take on M.anifest and the excellent "Brkn Lngwjz" remix. FOKN Wit Ewe is out now.

Interview: Ranks ATM Makes ‘Substance Music’

South African hip-hop artist Ranks ATM on his latest EP 'Substance Music', working with Riky Rick and his crew African Trap Movement's new chapter.

Ranks ATM demands to be taken seriously. With every successive release, listeners are bound to pick up on both his personal and artistic growth. His latest EP, Substance Music, released towards the end of 2020, is an honest body of work that sees the artist divulge some aspects of his life while remaining playful and entertaining.

Young2unn, who produced a majority of the project, gave Ranks ATM beats that primarily consist of keys and strings cushioned by atmospheric pads and ethereal vocal samples panned for effect. The music is soulful enough for Ranks to tell his story and gritty enough to maintain his street aesthetic.

On Substance Music, the artist strikes the balance between playful banter and poignant expression of emotions. It's what makes his raps believable in general—he presents himself as a complete human who feels pain at times but also feels himself. Songs such as "Die For Me" and "How Could It Be" are laced with specific details that could have only been extracted from his life experiences, for instance, on the former, he raps, "You cheated on me with a gym freak, you did me dirty."
