Few words about David Boomah:
Born in Birmingham, United Kingdom but raised in St Catherine, Jamaica, David Boomah is widely regarded as one of the most original, respected lyricists in the game.
Since bursting on to the UK jungle scene alongside Shy FX with the 1995 classic ‘Who Run Tings’, Boomah has continued forward ever since, remaining at the forefront of a scene he helped create.
Working in the studio and touring with the likes of Rebel MC, Shy FX, Potential Badboy, Benny Page, and collaborating with artists like Tenor Fly, Topcat, Navigator, and UK Apachi, Boomah has maintained his creative passion, and kept his links strong in both Reggae and Drum and Bass.
Here are some songs from his debut album, so you know what to expect when album comes out.
