In the summer of 2010, reggae singer Jamie Irie and dj/producer RCola embarked on a month-long tour; which took them to England, Germany, Lithuania, and Latvia; with 10 performances including festival slots at Zverafest (Latvia), Fordham (UK) and the BoomTown Fair (UK).
Here’s an edit taken from the live footage captured at the Lion’s Den stage @ Boomtown Fair 2010 in Buckinghamshire, England. Jamie Irie and RCola closed the night after performances from Smiley Culture, General Levy and Demolition Man.
They had met earlier on Myspace when Irie reached out to RCola for help promoting the new project Irie has been building with producer Sam Gilly and House of Riddim (Austria). RCola promptly re-mixed two tunes and Irie and Gilly were impressed enough with his work to enlist him to produce more music for the project.
RCola has toured the European continent 10 times in the last 6 years promoting his original productions and dubplates from his label group; and had been looking to add a live MC to his showcases. He soon booked a mini-tour and flew to Bristol to perform with Irie for “Blurred Vision” at the Lakota.
Originally planning to surprise the promoter with an introduction and live performance of the two new re-mixes, Irie stayed on the mic and together he and RCola lit up the Lakota for 2 hours in front of a very receptive massive.
All we can say is thank you everyone !!
Almost to much fun was had at this years fair, we have had nothing but good reports and it was all made possible through dedication of a fantastic crew, we are just starting to battle through the feedback emails now so if you have emailed us we will get back to you soon!
Now in our creative eyes, all Boomtown 2010 has really done is simply given us a whole new look into where we can actually take the festival, scope to link streets to streets and alleyways onto alleyways!! the plans and crazy ideas now circulating are just off the planet !!
We are going to have a month or so rest but please visit us again soon and keep checking our progress – Boomtown 2011 is set to take the festival world to a whole new magical level!!
(new BoomTown website coming soon!)
Much love and respect to everyone…

RCola lives in Montreal, Canada and plays a high energy blend of jungle and dubwise vinyls alongside his own original dubplates. After discovering jungle music on late-night radio in 1999, RCola began producing and playing live.
In 2002, RCola co-founded the infamous Chopstick Dubplate label and began to release vinyls and tour in Europe as a key player in the North American Ragga-Jungle revival.
In 2004, he formed the JungleXpeditions distribution company / record label and launched his own Royal Crown imprint; and to date has released 25 songs and toured throughout Europe 12 times; performing over 250+ shows in 20 different countries. His polished production aesthetic & highly musical ear is evidenced throughout his uplifting reggae-flavoured compositions and crowd-pleasing live shows.
In 2009, RCola released his “Rub A Dub Wize” album; which features 14 songs with reggae greats Barrington Levy, Sister Nancy, Jimmy Riley; jungle MCs Jamalski and Soultrain and chanteuse Belle Humble as well as dancefloor remixes of songs by live bands Aiwa and Transglobal Underground.
In 2010, RCola teamed-up with reggae singer Jamie Irie and Sam Gilly‘s House of Riddim live band, performing 10 shows with Jamie Irie all over Europe, (including Boomtown Fair (UK) & Zverafest (Latvia), as well as contributing production to Irie’s project with House of Riddim.
