“It’s a Junglist Ting” ft. David Boomah & Blackout JA (RCola Remix)

Run Tingz Cru are here to smash away those winter blues with the sixth release on their trailblazing eponymous label. Kicking things off in a typically upbeat fashion, this Bristol-based collective enlists legendary singer David Boomah and Run Tingz resident MC Jamaican-born Blackout JA.

The release features five (yes, five!) mixes of the tune with international Jungle legends RCola, Tester and newcomer HoT on the remix duties! The vinyl also features a slightly more dubbed-out amen remix from the label bosses G.Tactix and J.Man so there is something here to keep everyone happy!

The release will be available on 12″ vinyl and digital formats from January / February 2012. There are also a run of limited edition posters being given away to celebrate the release so if you want to get your hands on one (and there only 50) send your FULL NAME and ADDRESS here: list@runtingzrecordings.co.uk

“Irie Cola” live @ BoomTown Fair (UK) 2010

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.

“Booyaka”

General LevyPossibly and probably General Levy‘s greatest contribution to the world, featured in the track “Incredible” (The Jungle Is Massive) by M-Beat. ”

Booyaka booyaka” and the Jungle craze swept the world and empowered a generation with some of the most intensely uplifting vibes with the Jungle music revolution.

“Booyaka” was quickly absorbed and accepted by humanity as a word to describe and let out the awesome feeling inside, when one is king of the world.
