Black Creek Reign and some friends serve up the soundtrack to your summer getaway with their latest single Run Away — showcasing today on Tinnitist.
Teeming with laid-back grooves, sunny vibes and an irresisibly enticing refrain, the track features Black Creek Reign members Darren Armoogam and Lex Stultz in collaboration with fellow Toronto crossover group The Band Destiny and Caribbean artist Logun.
“Reggae is a genre that’s been near and dear to our hearts since our inception,” Armoogam shares. “It’s energetic, vibrant, calming, and can even be political at the same time. We’re all about creating within a very fluid genre-bending experience, and are influenced by a variety of styles — rock, pop, funk, and everything in between. But with reggae, there’s a sense of authenticity in it with us, too, considering half the band has an origin story there.”
Stultz adds: “Our friends The Band Destiny (which includes Armoogam) and Logun really hit a home run with their parts, and this song would not be the same without them. The Band Destiny have been our friends for years now, and skillfully blend reggae, soca, chutney, and Bollywood-style music in a way that makes it no surprise they’ve won Top Soca Band in Toronto three years in a row.
“Logun has shared the stage with the likes of Wayne Wonder and Ludacris, to name a few, and brings his own unique, island-rooted flair into the genres of hip-hop, reggae, roasting, and soca,” Stultz continues. “We’ve also known him for quite some time, and saw this collaboration as the perfect opportunity to incorporate a vibe that only he can execute. Really, we couldn’t have done it without him. He crushed it.”
Concludes Armoogam: “In all, this song is a rare blend of authentic Caribbean vibes that’s edgy and exotic — perfect for summer!”
