__________

The world’s seminal drum & bass festival is nearly upon us and in celebration the twenty five year strong Ram Records label are about to drop yet another compilation EP to announce their 2018 stage takeover. The track listing is as weighty as the artists they’ll be bringing along to Let it Roll this year; packed with seven new exclusives, from a range of producers both within the Ram roster as well as guests who’ve delivered a range of heaters throughout the imprint’s back catalogue, it’s sure to set the motions in place for the Let it Roll countdown.

Whether it’s the indisputably emotive formula of Sound in Noise’s offering ‘The Prophet’, or Audio’s rework of his collaboration ‘Creatures’ with MC Nuklear and Prolix, there’s a range of production styles which epitomise how diverse Ram has come to be over two decades. Freek’s ‘Human Being’ channels the artist’s tell-tale, bouncy signature whilst newcomer Kung crashes forward with the thumping bass peddles and rowdy drum sequences of ‘Eunoia’. Legion & Logam make a welcome comeback with ‘Mullholland Drive’ alongside Hamilton’s ‘Hopelessly Addicted VIP’, whilst Rene LaVice follows up his recent album ‘Far From Perfect’ with the crunching snares of ‘Poke the Bear’ with Lynx, and Subview’s record ‘Take Me Back’ rolls through with its liquid underpinning and sudden descendent into crashing breaks.

It’s an all-encompassing look at what Ram has to give this year at Let it Roll. As usual, it’s looking to be another monumental year for the world’s global gathering of drum & bass fans. Ram’s taster of what’s to come is just the beginning.

Leslie Odom, Jr ’s $500,000 Gamble That Led To “Hamilton”

Leslie Odom, Jr., Tony Award winner and author of “Failing Up”, risked $500,000 for his role in “Hamilton.” His willingness to fail led to one of his greatest successes.

Following is a transcript of the video.

Leslie Odom, Jr: The willingness to fail led me to some of my greatest successes.

Leslie Odom, Jr: I was really tired of the rollercoaster. I wanted off and I was looking to transition into another career and Stewart said you can do that but I’d love to see you try first. I’d love to see you try before you quit. And this is after 12 years in the business already. And I looked at him like he was crazy. He said, I think you’re
sitting at home on your couch waiting for the phone to ring. The phone didn’t ring. So what did you do today? You have no control over the incoming call. You have no control over the opportunities that will come to you but you have all the control over how you spend your day and what you put your energy toward.

Odom, Jr:  More often than not, what I’ve found in my particular path is it really was just the willingness to fail. Willingness to fail didn’t actually lead to failure. In some way, it led to these
moments of real change when, oh that’s, I thought the limit of my ability was right here but it’s actually, it’s a lot farther. I didn’t realize that the ceiling was so high. You don’t find that out until you’re willing to fall on your face trying to tap it.

Odom, Jr: What I saw on that last row at Vassar was something daring and fresh, you know, the first eight bars of that show is like some of the best writing for the theater ever. And that was just the first song. The fact that it kept topping itself, that it sustained that level of excellence was astonishing. Three, four months later I got an email from Lin. And he’s getting a group of people together to read through it and because I’d seen it, you know I thought I had
such a leg up, only in that I knew what a wonderful opportunity he was offering me. What seems obvious now, the show’s so ubiquitous and it’s having such a wonderful life, it can seem like, oh that it was a given that it was gonna be successful but all of us, we were turning down work and making ourselves available for this off-Broadway hip-hop musical about the Founding Fathers, people were lookin’ at us like we were crazy. People were lookin’ at us
like we were out of our minds. We happily did it because we believed in it.

Odom, Jr:  The biggest highlight was the White House, for sure. With that President and that First Lady, it meant so much to me and to my castmates. To have 40 minutes of his, their undivided attention is a chance to change the world because we might do something today that lodges somewhere in his heart, her heart, the back of their mind. They might see something today, we might touch them in a way today that affects how they make a decision tomorrow. In this business that is like the highest honor and the greatest platform I’ve ever felt that we’ve had to make a difference.

Odom, Jr:  The thing that I learned the most from that was from that whole Hamilton experience was the importance of the willingness to risk. I walked away from a television show and guaranteed contract for half a million dollars and people thought I was nuts and maybe I was, maybe I was a little crazy but the bigger the risk, sometimes, a lot of times, the bigger the reward.

Andy C – What Bass

Andy C – What Bass – Out 28th April

Subscribe for more – http://po.st/SubscribeRamYT

Become a fan of Andy C: https://www.facebook.com/andyc
Follow Andy C on Twitter: https://twitter.com/ANDYC_ram

Built for the rave and forthcoming on Ram Records, Andy C’s ‘What Bass’ has been roadtested during his 13 week XOYO residency, and was given its first radio play on his Beats 1 show on Friday night. This dancefloor-ready cut is the first new music from Andy C since 2016’s ‘New Era’, and will precede a new single for Atlantic Records later this year.

With over 40 awards to date, Andy C’s career has been nothing short of a phenomenon. He’s sold-out Alexandra Palace and Brixton Academy with his own solo shows, played headline slots at the world’s greatest festivals including Creamfields, Glastonbury, EDC, and SW4, and released a string of phenomenal crossover anthems like ‘Heartbeat Loud’ and club tracks like ‘New Era’. He’s also the go-to remixer for the likes of Major Lazer, Sigala, London Grammar and beyond, and the d&b figure recently chosen to host the first drum & bass radio show on Apple Music’s Beats 1, broadcast to over 100 countries.

As the owner and figurehead for Ram Records, which celebrates 25 years in 2017, Andy’s nurtured and developed huge headline artists such as Chase & Status, Wilkinson and Sub Focus, turning it into one of the world’s most respected independent operations across recordings and now festivals like EDC Las Vegas, Creamfields, and SW4 where Ram have hosted their own arenas and stages.

Andy’s main signature motif as a DJ is that he’s guaranteed to be packing tracks that no other DJ has. Hunting, digging, searching and signing: he is constantly immersed in new music. Not only does this ensure a wholly unique experience when you see him live, but it also gives Ram Records a front row seat when it comes to spotting new artists… As the likes of Loadstar, Wilkinson, Calyx & TeeBee, Frankee, Delta Heavy, Culture Shock, DC Breaks, Hamilton, Mind Vortex, Chords and many more can happily confirm.

On 31 March, Andy will complete his 13 week residency run at XOYO. The first d&b artist chosen by the renowned London club, tickets for his entire residency sold out far in advance. The Friday night run has allowed Andy to nurture a weekly crowd on a par with his legendary sets at The End, bringing together older heads and d&b’s new converts together under one roof.

Summer 2017 festival dates include Lovebox, Let it Roll festival, Snowbombing, Lost & Found, Wild Life, Parklife, Dour Festival, Nu Forms, Boardmasters, Dreambeach, Innovation in the Sun, Tomorrowland, Reading Festival, Leeds Festival, Bestival, Middlelands and many more to be announced.
