Review: Legendary reggae / dancehall singer Da Fuchaman joins the dots with his debut excursion into jungle. He's rolling with the best company as Run Tingz have recruited a crack team of on point craftsmen for him to vibe with: Serial Killerz, Isaac Maya, Frisk, Numa Crew, Choppa, Brian Brainstorm join the Run Tingz Cru themselves as Fuchaman brings the consciousness over a menu of gully textures. Highlights include the stench like bass on "Babylon Falling", the pure fire of the opener "Jungle Love" and the classic horn waves and snaking snares of "Call The Police". A unique and vital album that celebrates fusion at its deepest melting pot roots.
Review: David Zowie collaborator and all-round badman Da Fuchaman applies his gutsy, gravelly soundsystem sermons to the Run Tingz template for two savage drum-drenched jungle workouts. Gold Dubs switches the dancehall switch with a steppy, tripletty, stripped back jam while Levela jumps in and does what he does best... Smash the place to pieces. Authentic jungle business.
Review: 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.
Review: The latest six-tracker from Run Tingz Recordings is a six-tracker from Jinx, a producer whose jungle and jump-up credentials are firmly established and whom is on top form here once more. Title track 'Bed Of Roses' is certainly aptly named as it combines both an alluring prettiness with sharp edges, in part thanks to the slick vocal work from Texxus Red, who sounds especially good on the loping, hip-hop influenced introduction that perfectly sets the scene. This track also sets the scene for the rest of the release, an excellent piece of work from the Run Tingz team.
Review: From Bristol to the world, long-standing jungle collective Run Tingz wrap up 2020 with a serious jolt of positivity as they take in the internatty landscape and bring the full crew and many new faces together for this album rammed to the rafters with original - and largely vocal - dancefloor skank-ups. Highlights are instant as the opener 'Beautiful World' sets the vibes to stun. Elsewhere 'Lava Mouth' with Junior Morgan fuses savage breaks and disco stabs, Jinx and Deanie Rankin go for some proper gritty late 90s Dread vibes on 'Hooligan' and Cru newcomer Dublic dishes out a serious grumbler with the Total Science-style 'The Streets'. These are just the tip of the iceberg. Go global or go home.
