Rising Jamaican singer and singjay Runkus – son of 90s reggae chanter Determine – was recently named as one of 16 Caribbean artists to watch out for in 2016 by LargeUp. And now his debut EP has hit the streets.
Runkus has been recording for a number of years and last year he recorded a number of big tunes, including the fun and fiercely skanking ska tune Move Yuh Feet and Run, which appeared on the compilation Link Up.
Both cuts, along with their dub version, are featured on the ten track Move In, a set issued via Germany’s Oneness Records. It showcases a versatile talent at ease with singing, singjaying and rapping on top of a variety of riddims and beats.
Runkus is currently working on his debut full-length album and this fun and playful set certainly promises very well for that effort.
