Ruktuk’s fully charged up

Montego Bay-based deejay Ruktuk released his debut album Fully Charge Up on April 20. The eight-track set features the title track Trusted, Fall in Love Again, Green Dot, and Good Love.

The first single, Trusted, which was released in March, was inspired by a personal experience.

“I’ve been to a lot of different places throughout my life and I’ve seen both the good and the bad. One thing that sticks out in my mind is how some people always try to pull you down when they see you rising. This is something I’ve observed both in Jamaica and overseas and it makes it difficult for me to trust people. That’s why I wrote and recorded this song,” Ruktuk disclosed.

Ruktuk says he is pleased with the response to Trusted and has thrown the promotional muscle behind the Fully Charge Up album, released on his Ruktuk Music imprint.

To gain some traction in the lucrative US market, Ruktuk has a promotional tour in the works, which he hopes will stir some interest in the album.

“My manager is currently working with several promoters to organise a promotional tour of the United States for me. I’m really looking forward to this tour. I want to use the opportunity to get out there and expose my music to new audiences and build my fan base,” he said.
