LABELS: RIQ Yardrock Records
Marvellous Cain had a series of big tunes during jungle’s ragga heyday in 1993-94, including “The Hitman” and “Dub Plate Style.” Before signing to Suburban Base in 1995, Cain released tracks on label mate Sponge’s I.Q. imprint, collaborating with Sponge and current Ganja Kru member Pascal. A DJ as well as producer Cain began typically enough, spinning rave and hardcore in the late ’80s and following the style into full-blown jungle by the middle of the decade. He established his own label, Runninz out of the ashes of I.Q., and has released tracks under a barrage of names, including Lion Man, Badman, Runninz Kru, CoCain and Gunman, Cain released Gun Talk, a full-length collection of his most well known tracks (as well as a few new ones) on Sub Base in 1996. He has since focused on Yardrock records and he still continues to DJ at an international level.He has since rebranded the two labels into one unstoppable force of nature for new skool Junglist’s and gave it the new name of RIQ YARDROCK RECORDS. This label has turned out good sessions of releases from new workings of old classics like “The HitMan holding chart positions on Radio 1 and Radio 1Xtra as well as Dub Plate Style Remix , War In 94 Remix, Rocky Remix, Nice Tune Remix, Wheel Up Remix & Everyday Junglist Rework” to new upfront Jungle featuring various reggae legends such as “General Levy, Randy Valentine, Chalice & Cutty Ranks”. This label hosts an array of old and new producers giving it a wide eclectic sound with works from “Bladerunner, Nicky Blackmarket, Serial Killaz, Aries Dub & Rude Bwoy Monty” alongside the new future producers. The label was recently requested to represent their genre Jungle Drum&Bass by BEATPORT for their 10 year anniversary beatportdecides album celebration and it received a staff feature for top 10 albums. Cain is back in the studio working on some new tracks as well as collabs and has fired out a good succession of Riddim tracks, remixes and original works. He has teamed up with some of the finest and most influential producers including Serial Killaz, Dope Ammo, Ragga Twins, Aries Dub, Jungle Alliance, BrukOut Records and Rude Bwoy Monty for his label and other labels. Marvellous has since worked his magic with fellow producer Dope Ammo not just on new tunes but on a sample pack commissioned by LOOPMASTERS, filled with new skool jungle sounds & breaks just the thing you’d expect from the Cain..
