A yearly tradition, the Ram Records annual is set to drop at the end of another massive year for the imprint.

The 2020 annual is just another example of this fact and it features a host of exclusives, from both signed artists and frequent Ram guests, who explore the sounds which have marked the last twelve months of its journey. With stand-out singles from the likes of Culture Shock, Skantia and more of the Ram Records roster, there’s also a plethora of brand-new music about to drop with the full package.

Russian project Razlom, comprising of producers Nouwa & Encode, alongside Task Horizon, Akov, Fascad and Aperio present a collection of new talent which debuts on the imprint for their forthcoming compilation LP. Then Need for Mirrors offers a rework of his esteemed track ‘Arp Tune’ in the form of a VIP, whilst Smooth returns to Ram Records once again with his delivery ‘My Life’. And that’s just the beginning; the album is jam packed full of exclusives, one of their biggest collections to date. It also signifies just how big 2020 is slated to be for the label, adding to an already decorated history.
