“It’s important to take influence from everything around you to make you a versatile artist”
Off the back of the success of her debut single ‘Hardly’, the UK’s next big thing Juice Menace continues to impress with her new banger ‘Lizzi£’.
In true Juice style ‘Lizzi£’ is a self-assured and assertive track, with a generous bass and subtle electronic overlays, courtesy of Feniko. Juice talks about staying in your own lane on the way to the top — “the song is about being money motivated and focusing on myself rather than paying attention to everyone else’s opinions”
Her debut single ‘Hardly’, which was produced by Octavian producer Elevated, was along the same vein showing Juice carries her confidence throughout. The track picked up critical acclaim along the way as well as support in Spotify’s Viral 50 playlist. She also proves her talents aren’t saved just for the studio, opening up for AJ Tracey at his No Jumper headline show with at XOYO, where the response was insane. Juice is therefore determined to keep the bar set very high with her upcoming releases and ‘Lizzi£’ solidifies this.
When Juice picked up the mic two years ago at the tender age of seventeen, she has since been perfecting her craft. With a dream for bigger things and an urge to escape her life in Cardiff, Juice began grafting and building a network of young creatives in London which all have now aided in her musical style, branding and visuals. Now at just eighteen-years-old she has worked with respected producers in the UK and US underground circuit including Scott Supreme (Kodak Black, Young Thug), Scott Styles (Giggs etc), Honeywoodsix (House Of Phaorahs etc) and more.
Through nothing but hustle which her previous single ‘Hardly’ was a testament to, this young artist has solidified her sound by joining her two prominent influences, West Coast trap and underground UK rap, then adding a fierce, contemporary edge with consistent bass-heavy instrumentals. Taking influences from the likes of Travis Scott, Future and YG, as well as her early inspirations driven from her mother’s favourites such as Fugees, 112 and “all the bad boy artists”, Juice’s ear for timeless music as well as the modern buzz is second to none.
With a well-received Guap live session of ‘Probably’ accomplished and more huge songs on the horizon, Juice Menace is fast becoming a name to get familiar with. She’s young, hungry and ready to hustle so sleep on her at your peril.
