A firm face in the Run Tingz camp since 2013, Bristol ragamuffin J-Man gets lively with two of the most distinctive reggae vocalists who've crossed over to the D&B darkside; both Daddy Freddy and Blackout JA punch with real throaty gravel over J's shank-skanked rhythm to create in an ageless jungle jam. Looking for more punch in the bass department? Jump on Koznik and Khavey's potty-mouthed jump-up slapper. Think Konichi's style and you're not far off.
Bristol-based, Kingston born vocalist Da Fuchaman and champion jungle futurists Run Tingz are the perfect match. Following in a very similar vibe to Blackout JA, Fuchaman's gravelly toasting wraps itself round a 170 breakbeat like tar on a lung bronchiole - all sticky and dangerous. Gold Dubs' version maintains full use of the vocal while J-Man creates more space for his classic retro bubble bass licks. Both are serious skank-ups with an abundance of rewind potential.
Ah yes! More smoked-out drum and bass runnings from the one like Kursiva, and this time he's brought along Jahba and Clasiko to take care of the vocal front. As per usual, "High Vibes" combines the heart of both jungle and reggae, where seductive lyrics meet choppy jungle breaks and waves of blazing delay on the melodies. The remix duties are picked up by Terrahawk who focuses more on speeding up the beat twists in something of a dub version. Gnarly.
You know the jungle will smash it up with a Run Tingz release and they haven't disappointed with this collaboration with the mighty Doubla J and Breakah. Still repping that sunny sunshine vibe the Run Tingz crew add their tropical tastes for the first remix in the pack. Coming up close behind, Levela destroys with a jump-up remix to end late night dancefloor fatigue for good. Also doing his bit to keep it jumping early into the morning, J man's jungle edit is on a true junglist hype. Rounding off with the dutty original and an alt mix thrown in just because, you've just met your new favourite crowd pleasers.
