The impact of RAM Records on the Drum & Bass scene simply cannot be quantified. Comfortably sitting as one of the most influential electronic music labels in history, RAM Records have stepped into the fourth decade of its pioneering excursions.
Started by Andy C and Ant Miles in 1992, RAM Records have been at the forefront of the genre’s transformative years since its roots in the early 90s. It acts as a foundation for the Drum & Bass, standing firmly against the test of time where we have seen a number of groundbreaking labels perish.
Hosting artists like Camo & Krooked, Calyx & Teebee, Bad Company UK, Chase & Status, Culture Shock, Delta Heavy, Sub Focus, Wilkinson, and many, many more, RAM Records boast the most distinguished roster in Drum & Bass.
The revolutionary label’s efforts go beyond dropping seminal numbers year after year with the sister label ProgRAM Records. ProgRAM Records is the ideal platform to develop and promote fresh talents while championing every possible style and sub-genre of Drum & Bass. Some of the notable names coming out of the sister label are Kove, Frankee, and Eastcolors.

With RAM Records now kicking off its 30-year celebrations, a release that promotes one of the best up-and-coming talents was apt to remind fans of the caliber of new producers who have come through to help build such a historic platform.
RAM Records’ next release comes from an artist who is part of the new generation of artists breaking through on RAM known as Waypoint. A self-taught producer and audiophile, it was the formative listening of Andy C & Shimon’s ‘Quest’ which drew him to the genre. He is now set to make his debut on the moniker, which created his love for drum & bass.
His forthcoming release with its warbling basslines and diced samples marks the perfect start into RAM Records’ legendary catalog. From the two-tracker, we are stoked to premiere ‘Myself Again’, which is a pulverizing roller that is charged with crunching bass noises, drawing jungle-influenced breaks, and a vocal presence that adds harmony to the record.
Introducing a brand new act, RAM remains at the forefront of innovation through names like Waypoint. A presence that will become a resounding part of the drum & bass fraternity as his sounds infiltrate clubs across the world over the coming months.
