Sound In Noise – Duppy Bass / Rising Up Feat. WGW

After gracing the Ram Records back catalogue with his addition to ‘Ram Records Goes to Let it Roll EP 2.0’, Sound in Noise is moving through the ranks alongside his first standalone single on Ram’s definitive platform.

Twenty five years in the making, Ram’s reputation has pushed itself into dance music’s forefront, with it becoming one of the most exceptional imprints to push the drum & bass sound worldwide. And their roster has developed beside the genre, with exclusive signings and special guests helping to diversify the set of releases Ram unleashes onto its huge fan base. And Sound in Noise adds his twist to an already impressive back catalogue of cuts with his forthcoming single; his unforgiving, sonically charged records bring Ram into the contemporary era, providing a jagged edge to a history which has spanned over quarter of a century.

A-side ‘Duppy Bass’ begins with creeping atmospherics, and rolling breaks which make themselves gradually known. A smashing, jungle-esque drop and pumping drum patterns pull you deep into a reverberating, metallic bassline which pulses and stands out prominently against the mix. The added snipped up, distorted ragga samples only add to the dancefloor appeal against its throbbing stabs. The Estonian producer nods to the old-school whilst adding a new flavour with his incredibly powerful engineering, presenting himself as a hard-driving yet multi-faceted artist.

On the reverse, Sound in Noise presents the other side of his musicality with ‘Rising Up’. Featuring female vocal talents and electronically tuned notes, it’s vastly different from its forerunner but still hits just as hard with every stab of euphoric synth. Each layer of melody carries the track forward, providing you with the perfect soundtrack for a slowly diminishing summer. Together, Ram Records and Sound in Noise yet again push forward their commitment to drum & basses many dimensions, with both sides continuing to prove their longevity.

Calyx & TeeBee – A Day That Never Comes (Break remix)

Break and Calyx & Teebee – three drum & bass titans who are combining forces to deliver a monumental rework for the definitive Ram Records camp – one which will become a crucial part of its twenty five year history. After its initial release, ‘A Day That Never Comes’ crossed over the dark, guttural bass sounds which made Calyx & Teebee’s signature so recognisable with the more vocal focused end of their production spectrum. It stood as a signpost for their second LP on the Ram imprint ‘1×1’, which once again saw them take their production to an even higher climate.

Break re imagines ‘A Day That Never Comes’ and twists Larry Con’s husky, melodic vocals into a rolling undercurrent of pumping funk. The tightly-fashioned, clattering breaks moves through the composition Calyx & Teebee laid out before the remix was delivered, pumping through every layer to build the track piece by piece. The merging of Break and Calyx & Teebee had delivered a heavyweight formula, one which showcases the undisputable reputation of all three artists.

Together with Ram Records, prepare to be brought into an engineering which has continuously set a standard for quarter of a century. Whether it’s the label or the artists who’ve helped make it such a renowned entity within drum & bass, all three parties continuously push boundaries with every earth shattering release.

Ram Records new release – Bensley – Under The Sunshine


To get more of the very latest news faster than anyone then subscribe to our feed : CLICK HERE

Bensley was an artist picked from relative obscurity – a name which was absent from cyberspace, with no music available to stream anywhere online. However, when his intricately crafted, stunning sonic demos landed on the desk of Andy C’s esteemed Ram Records imprint, he soon rose to infamy within the drum & bass world. His release ‘Fandango’, the first snapshot into his impeccable production standard, was met with critical claim, from press to radio. Pedestalled on the revered UKF platform and on tastemaker Mistajam’s Radio 1xtra show, his story became legendary. The nineteen-year-old was an anomaly within dance music, grafting alone in the studio only to be picked up by one of dance music’s most definitive imprints.

Shortly after his exclusive signing to Ram, he released his debut LP ‘Next Generation’. For an artist that young to release such an impressive body of work, over such a small period, was almost unheard of. And in the years following, he followed up this album with single after single of unrestrained talent. His next offering comes in the form of ‘Under the Sunshine’, once again returning to a more vocal-lead style which resonates more outside of the club. With dreamy synths, beautifully rolling beats and Charlotte Haining’s vocal overtones adding to the track’s strident melody, ‘Under the Sunshine’ flexes Bensley’s full production might. It’s a crossover electronic track layered by his penchant for song writing.

The story continues for Bensley. ‘Under the Sunshine’ represents his evolving sound and with the guidance provided by Ram, he’s looking to develop his artistry throughout an array of genres. Drum & bass was the beginning, but his multi-faceted skillset continues to grow with every release; this single is a testament to that.

Frankee – Romana

Frankee has been working hard in the studio recently, diligently crafting these next few cuts and creating his biggest body of work to date. After a brief hiatus, he’s returned to the scene with a whole record collection of tracks which symbolise his meteoric climb. The first selection is ‘Romana’, a stepping stone towards his first LP on revered imprint Ram Records. After delivering cuts for Ram’s sister-label Program, he was signed exclusively to one of the most monumental dance music outputs in the world. Since then, he’s grown from strength to strength, creating crunching, club bangers like ‘Gully’, as well as liquid rollers like ‘Love & Peace’. His diversity is astounding and this carries through into his forthcoming LP, due to be released later this year.

Frankee is also a notorious figure on the club circuit. Having performed at the world’s largest drum & bass gathering, including Prague’s Let it Roll and Russia’s Pirate Station his presence behind the decks is just as diverse as his studio releases and his first LP will certainly reflect this.

‘Romana’ is deceptive in its intro, moving out on soft instrumentals, plucking notes and a female-lead vocal melody. However, the track quickly switches, crashing forward on grating snare with a bassline that quickly zips between the mix. Pitched up synth cuts between layers, giving you a brief respite before the record once again crashes with vibrating subs. ‘Romana’ is the perfect reintroduction into Frankee’s versatility, one that’s sure to bring him even further onto the forefront.
