The next release we’re about to deliver is a stomping seven-track EP from Ruffneck Ting resident, K Jah, who brings on board collaborator Erbman and remixer Danger FXX for a raucous display of energy and knowledge of the underground.
Hailing from Birmingham and a tastemaker within his field, K Jah’s originality has seen his signature sound take influence from East Coast Hip Hop, Detroit Techno, British Soul and Reggae, right through to US R&B and of course, the earlier world of Jungle.
Beginning the EP is ‘Brassed Off’ and as the name suggests, it cuts through with slamming drums and clashing percussive slabs. Erbman joins K Jah next for the rolling, rave influenced ‘Musicology’. This is his second visit to Ruffneck Ting following his tearing contribution to the iconic compilation series ‘The Xtraordinary League of Junglists’
K Jah then provides a huge heavyweight VIP of ‘Gassed to the Max’, which is succeeded by a chunky rework of another one of his classics ‘Rugged Over Loops’. Fresh creations ‘Inside my Head’ and ‘Mad Flavour’ further the assault, proving why K Jah continues to represent Ruffneck Ting both as a release artist and performer. Finally, you’re introduced to the Danger FXX remix of ‘Rushing Roulette’, with deep bubbling subs, scintillating drum rhythms and winding atmospherics.
Supported by Dj Rap, Bryan Gee, TI, Aries, V Dubz, Kenny Ken, Ruffneck Ting Crew and all your favourite DJS !!
