King Ru aka Ru.CL also continues working with Wayne Lotek in the studio. Cooking up a feast of  ‘big chunes’, both artists are keen to get the duo project out to the people. Check out the first King Ru and Wayne Lotek collaboration “Sundance”                       Sundance ‘Wayne Lotek’ featuring \’King Ru (Ru.CL)\’

In 2012 King Ru teamed up with Motley and Candice Monique forming the group “Carte Blanche”. The meaning and concept behind the name and group is like a blank cheque opening and having the power to bring anything and everything to the table, having creative freedom. The three talented pioneer solo musicians believe this tag team experience is about unity,writing quality music, proudly stretching music beyond its limitations, performing for Carte Blanche fans and having fun while doing so. They are looking forward to getting on the road with their explosive dynamic show and look forward to finishing the album. Before King Ru left for his overseas travels “Carte Blanche” performed together for the first time, leaving a real buzz about the trio around the music scene. Audiences wanting more of Carte Blanche. The second performance live streamed King Ru (Ru.CL) in London, to a Melbourne audience joining Motley and Candice Monique on stage via satellite. Since King Ru’s return to Oz the group have been writing,recording and performing as well as individually focusing on their solo careers. Class production from Jay Smith & Dutch and Billy Hoyle,”Carte Blanche” is not a group to be ignored. Like and comment on \”Carte Blanche\” fb page

» 2012 Ru.CL aka (KING RU) travels the globe

In 2012 Ru.CL aka King Ru travelled for several months, reflecting on his career and exploring the music scene in the UK and Jamaica. He also visited Barbados, New York, Los Vegas, Oakland and San Francisco.

While in the UK King Ru top lined or co wrote a song for BMG with Felicity Hunter and Russell Fawcus. King Ru felt totally inspired meeting extremely talented musicians who welcomed him as part of the family.He recorded at Black Lindy studio in Harlesden, the home town of UK Reggae star Gappy Ranks. King Ru (Ru.CL) was also featured on Reggae/Dancehall DJ and presenter Karl X radio show and was filmed with Queen Jigzie for an inspirational,motivational documentary.

Hanging out in the recording studio in Kingston,King Ru was asked by producer Tempa and artist Lego to feature on a song. Straight into the studio a couple of hours later the three musicians came up with a song.”Recording in Jamaica with Lego and Tempa was a ‘swagerriffic’ experience” says King Ru. During his stay in Jamaica he also filmed a video and furthered his percussion and vocal studies in Kingston.The highlights for King Ru were attending the amazing Reggae/Dancehall festival Sumfest. He was completely inspired seeing many of his favourite artists in action.”The biggest and the best festival I’ve ever experienced” says King Ru. Jamaica celebrating the 50th anniversary of independence, had spirits high and full of pride, especially when 1-2-3 Jamaican sprinters crossed the finish line to take Gold,Silver,Bronze at the Olympics. Twenty minutes later Jamaica created a dance called 1-2-3 Bolt,Blaire,Blake. “Saddened by the poverty and corruption but proud and blown away by how full of spirit,talented and enterprising my Jamaican people are” said King Ru.
