Ram has come a long way since being established in 1992 by Andy C and Ant Miles. The label is now at the forefront of drum & bass, and has featured some of the biggest artists in the game like Moving Fusion, Sub Focus and Chase & Status, just to name a few. Their monthly Ram night has been smashing clubs for years, starting at the infamous End in 1998, then moving to Matter in 2009. Its current home is Fabric.
Now this historic label is reaching a significant milestone in its life, introducing 'RAM100' - its 100th release. On the 25th July, a four-track EP and a digital 14-track bundle will see the light of day. The Ram cult will be happy to see such tracks as Andy C’s 'Finders Keepers' and Dirtyphonics' remix of Shimon’s 'The Shadow Knows' finally getting a release.
