RAMsterdam Drum & Bass 2015

Leading you deeper into the dark side of 2015, this year’s Ramsterdam compilation not only pedestals the artists who’ve made such a titanic impact throughout the last ten months, but also the emerging talent from sister label Program and Ram’s newest signees. Whether it’s the old school, growling riddim from Agressor Bunx, or Calyx & TeeBee’s tell-tale, trembling bassline, each track gives the album a unique vantage point.

Featuring on the collosal track listing is Delta Heavy; an exclusive which relays their elevating, pumping composition, it’s a dancefloor banger sure to detonate any crowd. And Frankee also makes a welcomed return, following the release of his anticipated single ‘Downtown’. ‘Raptor’ is unforgiving, snapped up by different animalistic samples and stridently aggressive – pedestalling Frankee’s unforgiving production standards.

On a totally different vibe, Freek is back with ‘Born Different’, a clanking yet powerful number, one which gears up into LFO-lead chaos with snapping percussion between each break. Brand new music from production outfits Teddy Killerz and Mind Vortex also make a very valuable addition, proving their unbridled talent, with merciless yet complex records that are fierce and gagging to be let loose on Amsterdam’s clubs.

Two of this year’s most resounding tracks from the Ram camp, Bensley’s ‘Aftermath’ and Gerra & Stone’s ‘L.I.E.S.’ have also received revamps, providing two anticipated VIPs already igniting sets worldwide. Loadstar also deliver the goods; brand new heavy-hitter ‘Dune’ demonstrates exactly why they’ve become such revered names across the genre.

So, here’s to another Amsterdam Dance Event. One with a soundtrack provided by one of the most enduring labels, and stellar rosters, that dance music has played host to. And with Ram also holding a night this October, from first listen onwards prepare to be immerse yourself in Ram’s vast musical environment.

Aquasky - Shadow Era EP.1

Bournemouth trio Brent Newitt, Dave Wallace and Kieron Bailey have played by their own rules and stamped with their style since day one. 20 years deep into their game and the indelible 

Aquasky legacy is sprayed colourfully, thoughtfully and, at points, antagonistically over all shades and styles of electronic music since they started exploring the new wave of early 90s rave: drum & bass.

Over the years, Aquasky have been signed to a major record label, worked with everyone from Noisia to Orbital, remixed Diplo & Wiley (as Black Noise), racked up a gold selling single in the UK & topped the charts in Australia (to name just a few achievements)

In their 20th year in the game, the guys are proud to present you with their early work on seminal label Moving Shadow in the form of 'Shadow Era' parts 1 & 2.

Signing to the label in 1995, the two albums showcase the music the guys were making in the era in the form of original tracks, remixes for the likes of The Art Of Noise, Omni Trio & Sneaker Pimps & a healthy dose of never heard before Dubplates.

Mark Heaney’s career has spanned a staggering 30 years. Having played with numerous bands including The Seahorses, The Shining and more recently post punk legends Gang of Four, as well as session drumming for some of the world’s greatest producers, working with the likes of The Stone Roses, Placebo, Dream Theatre and David Bowie to name a few.

Described by Rhythm Magazine as ‘one of the most jaw dropping drummers in the UK’, Mark is renowned for his aggressive style, frightening speed and flawless technique. 

He is also an established composer, having lent his services to various music houses including Sony and EMI.

Monument of Sound, Pt. I showcases Mark’s skill set as both a producer and a drummer. With beautifully composed musical backdrops, this collection of chilled tracks combine a cool blend of ambient pads and atmospheres with synths, lo-fi samples and of course, live drums. Pt. II will be an altogether more intense and uptempo affair, featuring Mark’s powerful trademark drumming style with an overall tougher sound. Monument of Sound, Pt.
