RUNN Records initially started as the Cool Runnings black music shop owned by Guido Delvoux. In 1989 we released our own produced first records on the RUNN label. These first releases were by artists like Devon Russel & Cultural Roots, Panache Culture, Macka B, and Earl Sixteen. The mid-’90s was the most noteworthy period for our label with the release of albums by Prezident Brown, Mikey Spice, Daweh Congo, E.T. Webster, Sizzla and Continuous Mix cd’s of “Heathen Chant” and “Drum Song”.

RUNN has been involved in reggae music for 30 years by now, for the near future we can only say, “Keep yuh eyes pon RUNN, ’cause BIG TINGS A GWAAN!

“The business relationship between RUNN Records and Barry O’Hare’s XRated label (later renamed World-A-Music) was so fruitful that since then most of our work has been done together.”
