RAMLive – Skantia

Last month’s liquid rollout from Mel C was the perfect Summer mode switch up, so we move into July’s RAMLive with the latest member of the RAM Records family: Skantia

The 22-year-old, who graduated from sister label ProgRAM after just one release, has already made his mark on 2019 with debut single Cluster and his scene stealing Bassline Secret remix, which has been battered by some of drum & bass’s biggest and best, including Andy C and Chase & Status. Before becoming a producer Skantia cut his teeth as DJ, becoming resident at Dilate in his hometown of Newcastle. Using production to boost his sets, for his RAMLive you can expect to hear a few of his own tracks in the mix and with a penchant for the more stripped back, roller sound of drum & bass it’ll get deep, dark and murky with some serious vibes thrown in for good measure. One of the most exciting emerging talents in the scene, Skantia is sure to deliver some serious sounds for your Monday night.

Submissions are still being considered so please email your mixes to info@ramrecords.com and remember to make them downloadable and do not expire – we don’t wanna miss out on the next future participant!

Urbandawn – Come Together (feat. Tyson Kelly)

Buy or stream ‘Urbandawn – Come Together (feat. Tyson Kelly)’ here: https://urbandawn.lnk.to/ComeTogetheryb

Every once in a while a spark of an idea balloons into something astounding and takes the drum & bass world by complete surprise. As an ode to the seminal track by legendary British band The Beatles, Urbandawn has created a very special 174 cover of ‘Come Together’, featuring the vocals of the world-famous Beatles Bootleg frontman Tyson Kelly.

Urbandawn’s unrivalled production has seen him turn the heads of the scene’s most infamous figures with support pouring in from dance music titans Andy C, DJ Marky, Danny Byrd, London Elektricity and the track even getting rewinds in the booth from Skrillex.

The ‘Come Together’ cover doubles down on the combined doses of nostalgia and euphoria. Where the energy from the original British pop culture classic is matched with all of the extravagant trimmings of Urbandawn’s unique D+B style. It’s first-class-crunch has made some serious noise and propelled him to the forefront of the D+B community, making Urbandawn one of the most sought after dubplate creators.

After notable releases such as his phenomenal ‘Gothenburg Cluster’ LP and the delightfully dynamic ‘Sleeping Awake’ EP, the cover comes in a class of its own that has come crashing through the ages – coveted by many, and now finally available for all on a limited edition one sided heavyweight, etched vinyl with classic 60’s style design.

Abstr4ct – ‘Overflow’

Abstr4ct – ‘Overflow’

The RAM crew first knew Abstr4ct’s presence back in 2013 with his remix of Loadstar’s ‘Dr. Karg’ from their ‘Future Perfect’ LP, which also featured on Andy C’s ‘Nightlife 6’ compilation. Honing his craft since then, the Brazilian producer debuts two original works on ProgRAM.
 
‘Busy’ doesn’t give you much time to introduce itself: an electro synth note rises then collapses into a snarling, growling bassline. It comes underpinned by minimalist percussive elements and guttural, pitched down vocal snippets. ‘Overflow’ keeps things pared down to the basics – a stripped back roller. The bass and atmospherics do most of the work here, creating a deep cut with a techy edge.
 
Harvesting talent is something ProgRAM prides itself upon and Abstr4ct is definitely one to keep an eye on. ‘Busy’ and ‘Overflow’ provide further evidence that it’s all about getting with the ProgRAM.

Freek – ‘Lately’ ft. Chris Cotton

Freek
‘Therapy / Lately’
Released: 1st March 2019
PRGRAM076

Freek is certainly no stranger to the RAM/ProgRAM team. Previous appearances include the crowd pleasing ‘Cobalt 60’ (supported by none other than Andy C), to his most recent offering ‘Human Being’ on last years ‘RAM Goes To Let It Roll 3.0’ EP. Freek found himself on ProgRAM’s first long-player offering ‘Encrypted’ way back in 2015. Now he gets his own chance to shine with the first of two standalone singles on Ram’s sister label.

‘Therapy’ is allllll about the bassline. Sparse beats and fills are swamped by the wave riding hoover bass, which definitely makes its presence known. Featured guest MC Jack Knife adds a punk aesthetic, with a brash vocal adding extra bark to the productions bite. Pushing things in more melodic direction is ‘Lately’, where Freek displays a liquid side to his usual dancefloor sound. For this he enlists singer/songwriter Chris Cotton, who adds crisp vocals over the melancholic piano, strings and warping bass.

‘Therapy’ and ‘Lately’ are two examples of an artist growing in confidence with every release across our imprints, while showing versatility in the process. It’s time to get with the ProgRAM – and 2019 is already looking strong.

Few acts showcase drum & bass’s exciting creative scope with the same skillish vibrancy as June Miller.

Since signing to Ram Records a year ago, the Dutch/Anglo duo have locked themselves away in their Utrecht HQ working on a series of mindblowing creations. Deep in sonic solitude, they’ve pushed themselves to whole new levels… As proved by the stunning ‘Empathy’ and ‘Operation Ivy’. Both pivotal tracks on Andy C’s explosively extensive ‘Nightlife 6’ opus, these cuts represent June Miller’s chiselled production skills like never before.

We kick off with ‘Empathy’. Igniting with a surging sense of soul, the unity of timeless synths and spellbinding vocals set a smouldering scene that’s suddenly shattered into gnarled fragments when the drop lands. An overwhelming bass riff scuffs across the blistering breakbeats to create a thunderous groove. Instant riot material, this has been tried and tested by Andy C since the summer, each airing causing unparalleled commotion in its wake.

‘Operation Ivy’ complements the carnage perfectly. A jittering, snake-like roller with deep funk coded into every element, everything about this pristine precision piece is designed to get the floor wriggling. From the crisp digi slap bass to the strident, spacious drum dynamics and textured rhythmic stabs, this is an impeccable example of how measured and meticulous drum & bass production standards are when they’re in the right hands.

Two outstanding cuts from one of the scene’s most forward-thinking, accomplished acts, two representations of how far-reaching and creative drum & bass can be: June Miller have an incredible year ahead of them. And it starts right here.

DJ Support:

Chase & Status, Sub Focus, Doctor P, Dillinja, DJ Hype, Zeds Dead, Hazard, Crissy Criss, Rene LaVice, Loadstar, Mind Vortex, Drumsound & Bassline Smith, Spectrasoul, Dub Phizix, Taxman, Cutline.
