In Syria, the Milky Way glimmers over a sea of rubble | AFP

Years of violence in Syria’s last major opposition bastion has created a landscape of ruin, eerily lit by the Milky Way in the night sky. These timelapses taken on an unusually clear night with no moon show the stark contrast between the grim devastation on the ground and the Milky Way.

One of the longest standing independent labels to emerge from the heady UK rave explosion in the early 90s, Ram Records is a bona fide institution. Inspired by the exciting, genre-melting creative free-for-all that was happening between hardcore, techno and breakbeats, Andy C and Ant Miles founded the imprint with one distinct vision: to push production creativity and dancefloor dynamics to the very limits.

22 years forward and that spirit is just as crucial to every aspect of Ram’s operations today. A true scene authority that has worked with – and nurtured – the most high profile and talented names in electronic music, the label is consistently supported from every corner of the scene. Transcending the concept of a record label as we know it, the brand hasn’t just contributed to the unique fast-paced genre but has worked tirelessly to elevate and develop it in every possible creative way. To put it simply: drum & bass wouldn’t be the unique beast it is today without Ram’s involvement.

Bringing us all up to speed, Ram have explored their epic vaults to curate three special collections exclusively for its passionate, ever-growing US community. Joining the dots between its earliest, rawest roots and its most upfront, future-shocking slammers, each of these collections represents Ram Records in all its many exciting shades.

This third and final collection brings Ram’s unique series to an almighty climax. Saving some of its most uncompromising, most daring, most timeless, most creative of tracks for the grand finale, be prepared for a bombardment of the senses… From Ram Trilogy’s thundering percussion session ‘Titan’ to the smouldering, emotive vocal soars and aggy bass sneers of Concord Dawn’s ‘Fly Away Home’ and Loadstar’s ‘Space Between’ via Lomax’s post-apocalyptic war cry ‘Faith Massive’, each of these tracks boils drum & bass down to its most critical, crucial, visceral ingredients.

Another essential highlight is Shimon & Andy C’s historic ‘Body Rock’. The first instrumental drum & bass tunes to hit the UK’s commercial charts, it’s triplet dynamic has influenced D&B to this very day. Elsewhere we’re treated to concentrated funk by way of Moving Fusion’s ‘Thunderball’ and Sub Focus’s trailblazing ‘Rock It’. We’re hurled into the deep space, deep bass abyss on Ram Trilogy’s ‘Milky Way’ and driven into a shamanic state by Fresh’s modern day jungle homage ‘Gatekeeper’.

Ten moments of true drum & bass history: no one joins the dots quite as succinctly as Ram Records. Constantly pushing the boundaries at every level… ‘Ram Drum & Bass USA’ doesn’t just represent the best of Ram Records but some of the finest moments of the entire genre to date.
