Magnetude ‘Snatch’

Magnetude ‘Snatch’

Eight years in the making, the path of Magentude was never a smooth one. The Anglo-Russian hybrid spent their formative years sharing music across the vast expanse of cyberspace; following a chance online meeting through their individual projects, it was their love for musically enriched drum & bass which drew them together and it was this passion which saw them collaborate. Time passed, meaning Magnetude became less of an idea and more of a reality as their tracks gained traction across worldwide stages and DJ sets. However, the ingeniously sculpted compositions they piece together meant it was only natural for them to pique interest with one of dance music’s most revered labels, Ram Records. And it was here that their forthcoming single ‘Snatch’ and ‘Signals’ came into being.

One element of Magnetude’s success is their ability to integrate multi-genre soundscapes across drum & bass. ‘Snatch’ is the epitomic example, pulling out vast, orchestral instrumentals and throbbing bass notes to draw you deep inside its climatic breakdown. As the record transcends into a more dancefloor-lead drop, it ducks and dives between rocketing pulses of LFO and a hook which is undeniably catchy. Switching midway and demonstrating that every inch of their music channels a constant thought process, ‘Snatch’ may be your first foreword into Magnetude’s sound but it will certainly carve a lasting impact.

‘Signals’ still shakes with the same relentless drive as its flipside but also gives you a glimpse into Magnetude’s boundary-breaking sound design. Pulling robotic, eerily warped vocals through the mix alongside its floating synths, the introduction of its weighty drum patterns adds a divisive undercurrent. ‘Signals’ still keeps its focus around the anarchist club vibes seen throughout Magnetude’s production but it also opens you up to their range and diversity.

They’re a duo who concentrates on developing a signature which not only oozes individuality but also centralises around the contemporary progress of drum & bass. This is why they’ve become such an exciting prospect within the twenty-five year strong Ram Records roster.

DC Breaks ‘Never Stop’ (S.P.Y Remix)

DC Breaks ‘Never Stop’ (S.P.Y Remix)

The art of remixing is something which DC Breaks hold in high regard – from their own cuts through to the artists they’ve chosen for their Different Breed reworks, their standards have been clear from the offset. Even the original release of their seminal LP featured a hugely diverse array of collaborative artists and musical signatures, which is why the duo came through Ram Records’ roster with so much garnered interest. And adding to the already popular twists from A.M.C & Turno, Flowidus and Tantrum Desire, more artists enter the fray for their own takes on DC Breaks’ sound.

S.P.Y and Synergy are next to take you into the deeper and darker world of Different Breed, drawing styles from opposite sides of the same spectrum and twisting them into something almost unrecognisable.

First up, S.P.Y moves through Never Stop, pushing DC Breaks’ more dancefloor, vocal-lead breakdowns and slamming them against a more tech-driven reimagining. S.P.Y is the master of driving a minimalist sound design whilst also smacking hard on its impact; between every clattering layer of drums and elevating blast of LFO, the original melody streams throughout his remix. The bare bones of Never Stop are clear to see, but S.P.Y makes his presence known through every crackle of bass.

Following in quick succession is Synergy’s version of Hustle, which dramatically switches gears and orchestrates a more stabbing descent into chaos. With Synergy’s neuro-infused background making itself known, their pounding kicks and snares catapult Hustle into a more cataclysmic scene, one which is sure to gain a following throughout their loyal following of DJs. The pair have already found themselves as a centrepiece within the darker side of drum & bass throughout recent months and following a release on the infamous Ram Records imprint, this heat is about to switch up another notch. More remixes are still to come from DC Breaks’ debut Different Breed LP and looking back at its first consecutive unveilings, their full power hasn’t yet been felt.

DC Breaks ‘Everybody’ (Flowidus Remix)

DC Breaks ‘Everybody’ (Flowidus Remix)

The first part of DC Breaks’ ‘Different Breed’ remix package already climatised its listener to the standard of brought into its 2018 addition. With Tantrum Desire reworking ‘Underground’, and Prolix joining DC Breaks for a VIP of ‘Infinity’, it was a welcome reminder of just how imperative the pair’s debut album was on 25-year strong imprint Ram Records. However they dip into a new range of producers for its next segment, focusing on 174bpm maestros who have helped drum & basses creative streams over the past twelve months whilst simultaneously paving their own way across its dancefloor lit trenches.

Bass stacked duo A.M.C and Turno deliver their undiluted sounds for ‘Vendetta’, still pushing forward on its orchestral, beat layered introduction before taking you down to a completely different set of levels. Crushing LFO distortion and a sharp-edged hook cuts at you throughout every nastily padded break, with the outfit demonstrating why they’re such esteemed players on today’s club circuit. On the flipside, you’re driven through the detailed intricacies of Flowidus’ production, which weaves a craftily manufactured melody throughout the mix of ‘Everybody’, a single already pulsing with an emotive backdrop. The Australian based pair pulls the track into play with tinkling piano notes and a more-liquid focused breakdown which is still as dynamic but more subdued in its approach. They provide yet another addition to their releases on the Ram Records label, having already featured on both their groundbreaking compilations and its counterpart, Program.

With more to come from the likes of Ram Records’ own Loadstar, neuro-tastemaker Insideinfo, as well as a plethora of other vigilantly sought out drum & bass tastemakers, there’s more from the aspirators who paved DC Breaks’ path to ‘Different Breed’.

Bringing a close to their four track ‘Transformation’ EP, Mind Vortex have made a welcome comeback for 2017. Since the beginning, they’ve etched a path for themselves which has woven itself around countless radio plays by tastemakers and Djing slots across the worldwide club circuit. It’s their expertly engineered cuts which have made them so notorious for imposing dancefloor annihilation, with a diverse back catalogue standing as a testament to this.

Alongside ‘Shall We Begin’, your first introduction to the ‘Transformation EP’, next single ‘The Day After’ and slamming rework ‘Future Fold VIP’, ‘Transformation’ ties together a four-track offering which has been anticipated since it was revealed. Time and time again, Mind Vortex have ensured they stay at the pinnacle of their game, with title-track ‘Transformation’ once more raising the bar. Finding a place within the revered home of Ram Records, Mind Vortex present another formidable output.

Coming at you with flickering, sonic beats and a bassline which begins to methodically switch into gear, ‘Transformation’ proves its dancefloor appeal and the incredible manufacturing of their track intros. Punching forward on surging drum patterns and terrifying flicks of twisting LFO, each seismic crash of bass pushes you further into the mix. Mind Vortex create yet another set opener, a promising start to festival season for any drum & bass lover – the track ebbs and flows between an epic crescendo, before gearing up for another climatic breakdown. Mind Vortex demonstrate why they’ve become an integral part of the Ram Records’ roster, pushing harder and harder with every release.

The soundscape available to Mind Vortex is a versatile one. However, the ‘Transformation’ EP ties in four undeniably cutting tracks which pedestal their filthier underbelly. It’s this signature which has made them a staple on line ups across the globe. And they’ll continue to reign supreme on the dancefloors for years to come, with new music still waiting on the horizon.

Chords has often been heralded as one of the most musically gifted artists on the Ram Records roster and having begun his journey via classical training as a child, it’s no surprise why his sounds are so technically impressive. Influenced by everything from soul to hip hop, his eclectic tastes shine through each one of his offerings, helping him to have a unique take on the 170bpm drum & bass genre.
Many listeners were concerned during his brief hiatus over the last few years; despite delivering tracks for Ram Records stellar compilation releases, his standalone releases became few and far between. But just like his music, Chords is multi-faceted. He’s an artist in the truest sense of the word and during his break from music making, he’d dedicated himself to the world of cinema. After receiving a prestigious award for his most recent short film, he decided to once again focus on music, signalling this next release on the prestigious Ram imprint.

‘Clarion’ is darker in tone, dropping into crunching LFO and weighty bass patterns. It’s a side of Chords’ which was previously unseen, although with a whole collection of records waiting to be released, you’re likely to see more of it in the coming months.
Chords is back and weightier than ever. For fans old and new, the anticipation for more music has exploded with this next release.

For twenty five years, Ram Records’ ground breaking roster have stood at drum & basses forefront. Time and time again, they’ve delivered some of the most definitive releases which have helped to shape the genre’s roots, becoming a prized part of its antiquity and huge back catalogue of releases. But alongside their primary artists, they’ve also welcomed guests to bring their refined production to Ram’s ever-growing discography. Their next addition is from Smooth, an artist whose spent years refining his craft, from playing instruments in his formative years to turning his hand at metal, hardcore and finally drum & bass, where he landed himself on its most revered imprints. He continues this ascent with the ‘Resurrection EP’ on Ram, featuring four fresh cuts to add to an already stellar succession of releases.

First from the new batch of records is ‘Trajectory’, a steppy, snapping whirlpool of clattering bass rhythms and fluctuating note patterns. It pulls you into Smooth’s dreamy soundscape, whilst still channelling a bassline which pulsates steadily underneath each flurry of beats. Up next comes ‘Disco’, with a more cascading, jazzy appeal, one which gradually builds into uplifting pads and clattering drums, helping to flesh-out the composition. ‘Disco’ points to Smooth’s streamlined musicality, which features a huge repertoire of sound.

‘Device’ follows with a cinematic intro, which begins to grow steadily on a quick succession of sonic stabs and heavyweight drums. Amongst old-school breaks and rattling percussion sitting underneath the mix, the track is tribal yet crunches with grinding LFO. It’s fierce in its delivery and channels more contemporary production standards. ‘My Feeling’ finishes the EP on a completely different vibe, drawing out keyed arpeggios and elevating synths. Smooth flexes his creativity one more time before the Resurrection’s close, stringing together shimmery vocals and an emphatic climax. Alongside its predecessors, ‘My Feeling’ gives the perfect end to a stellar release. One welcomed by Ram’s decorated history.

Following a plethora of new releases on Ram Records compilation series, Madface returns to the revered dance music imprint for a standalone offering. Ram has often prided itself with pedestalling diversity and this next single proves why they’re still leading the way for plucking out the best newcomers from the depths of cyberspace. However, Madface has slowly been making his impact felt over the last few years and this single will signify yet another step closer to his name becoming a staple on line ups globally.

The year’s lighter months lay just on the horizon and ‘Hold On’ featuring vocalist Benji helps draw the Summer even closer. A sure set liner and dancefloor anthem, the voice crescendos offering by Benji help take the track to different heights, spiking with every humanistic hook and clattering rolls of percussion. Each hi-hat helps the record snap into life whilst the bassline drives you forward at a dizzying speed. Emotive yet still underpinned by its stockier elements, Madface manages to balance both weightiness and an appeal that will stretch across the drum & bass community. It’s easy to imagine ‘Hold On’ setting alight stages throughout the festival circuit and if this track doesn’t get you excited for the impending season then nothing will.

On the flipside, Madface draws out his nastier demeanour, with clattering breaks that cascade between stabs of LFO and crunching snare. The perfect juxtaposition to its A side, Madface caters for a range of tastes, proving his career will inevitably go from strength to strength in the coming months.

Teaming up with Madface, Ram continue to draw out every colour the drum & bass world has to offer. Demonstrating why they still dominate the drum & bass world.

Completing their four-track digital EP, Mind Vortex have delivered a smashing VIP mix of dancefloor record Future Fold VIP. Having toured extensively last year, across Europe and beyond, they’ve returned in 2017 with a set of brand new releases to push them even further onto the map.

Throughout festival season, Future Fold was already doing damage, a certified set opener and helping to ignite crowds of thousands across the circuit. Released on Ram 200, a definitive release on the imprint’s discography, it became one of the most recognisable tunes Mind vortex have dropped in recent years. With summer quickly approaching, the VIP treatment is sure to follow suit, becoming another damaging part of the duo’s discography.

A snapping succession of beats and booming bass patterns drag you headfirst into their mix, with their tell-tale driving bassline once again taking hold. With the original being a masterclass in high energy drum & bass, its VIP follows the same vibe. Drawing out on a darker intro, its smashing kicks mimics the original whilst buzzing LFO leads into its drop, adding to a more bass driven hook. Mind Vortex once again showcase why they’re kings of the dancefloor.

June Miller return for their final release, a duo who’ve spent years defining their sound within the Ram Records roster and will continue to do years after their final record. From their first single on Ram, to their debut LP Robots and Romans, they’ve supplied some of the heaviest cuts Ram’s discography offers and their next output will be no different.

Dominator and A Pinda Funk also bring on board two featuring artists, fellow Europeans James Marvel and MC Mota.
Whilst James Marvel has become a renowned part of the drum & bass scene in Belgium’s cultural hub Brussels, MC Mota lends his vocals to an array of artists throughout the genre and together they present an undeniably eclectic outfit.

Dominator moves you through an intricately layered world built up slowly by grinding bass and clattering patterns of percussion.
MC Mota’s ragga-like vocals begin to sift through the mix, leading you into a climatic drop. Instigating a beat-lead riot, you’re attacked from all sides, with crushing drums throwing punch after punch. Dominator is your introduction into chaos, whilst still being meticulously constructed.

Next comes A Pinda Funk, a clever play on words with an even more ingenious sound design. Cutting through heavy LFO with its sonic edges, a quick vocal sample from MC Mota narrates the slow descent into anarchy. With its funky elements displayed from start to finish, A Pinda Funk grabs you with catchy hooks and a techy melody, proving that both June Miller and James Marvel have a multifaceted production standard. This single demonstrates why June Miller became so notorious not just within drum & bass, but also within the army of its most definitive imprint. And they will remain as such, within the headphones of music listeners everywhere.
