We count down 25 Ram classics to celebrate their 25 years in the game.
Established in 1992 by Andy C & Ant Miles, it's grown organically into one of the leading imprints for drum & bass. It has an unparalleled discography of tunes that trace the growth and development of jungle drum & bass from the early 90s to today. The label also boasts incredible signings over the years including some of dance music's biggest names including Sub Focus, Chase & Status & Wilkinson.
Over the years, with help of Scott Bourne, Ram Records has grown its solid artist roster, held residencies at infamous clubs including The End & Matter and held stage takeovers at tonnes of festivals including Let It Roll & Creamfields. Not to mention nabbing the award for Best Label countless times and securing daytime radio plays and top ten chart positions. The infamous logo, drawn up by Andy C's sister, has now become synonymous with quality.
This year marks a massive 25 years of big tunes, massive signings and even crazier parties. To celebrate they're hosting three mental parties across the country including one at London's Printworks on October 28th. The events will honour the label's legacy while keeping doors open for the future. Cos if that's one thing that has kept Ram at the top, it's the labels ability to keep moving forward despite its rich history.
In light of Ram's 25 years smashing the business we've counted down 25 of our favourite Ram tracks. Get involved in the action and get yourself down to Printworks for 25 Years of Ram, grab your tickets from the Ram website.
