Runtown pulls from his bag of tricks yet another surprise, this time a project, an LP – Soung God Fest Reloaded – the sequel to “Soundgod Fest, Vol. 1” released in 2019.

Sound God Fest Reloaded features South African acts Rowlene (“Luva Luva”), Emtee (“Come Closer”) and Gemini Major (“Tell Me What You Want”) with UK Afrofusion artiste appearing twice (“Fuck Eh Up” and “Body Riddim”) and emerging Nigerian talent, Minz gets a cosign from Runtown and is the most featured artiste on four different tracks (“Fuck Eh Up”, “Sativa”, “Praises” and “Bad Gyal Riddim”). Other featured acts include Bella Shmurda (“Body Riddim”) and Afrobeat instrumentalist and singer, Made Kuti (“Mama Told Me”).

2020 released singles, “Body Riddim” and “Kini Issue” are added to tracklist with the latter getting a remix, just an instrumental change, no featured artiste, (yes Runtown is full of tricks and surprises).

Runtown continues the sound-blend of Carribbean Dancehall rhythm, Pop and Alternative so effortlessly like he has done on previous songs and projects. Sound God Fest Reloaded has a total of 12 songs with Runtown serenading listeners and moving to the gyal dem as usual on several tracks while keeping the mood light and chilled with the production kept low tempo and laid back as possible.

Gradually the instrumentation gains pace, giving room for a more lively mood and of course, dancing, as the most sought after Amapiano sound is blended with the production; Blxckie woukd eventually come on, singing a little, before spitting some bars in his native mother tongue.

“By Your Side” is produced by Tumisho. Listen:
