If you read DAD regularly, you know we love drum & bass. We regularly include it on our best of lists and we’re always trying to educate you androids on our taste of it. One guy though who takes that cause above and beyond is RAM Records founder, legendary DJ, and producer Andy C. As the label’s founder (along with Ant Miles), Andy C has been a driving force in fostering a world-wide drum & bass culture and sound over the last 22 years. In those years, RAM has always been at the forefront of the scene having been behind the breakout of today’s dnb stars like Chase & Status, Sub Focus, and Wilkinson and they routinely release some of the most rinsed records in all of electronic music. Now most of the label’s tunes fall in the 170BPM range and come with a hardcore edge, but that’s by no means the limit to RAM’s range.
If you’re in NYC this coming Friday, Andy is bringing his RAM crew affiliate and DAD favorite Rene LaVice and MC Armanni Reign to deliver the best in drum & bass. We’ve teamed up with Webster Hall to give you 21+ androids a chance to not only win a VIP table complete with a bottle of that bubbly, but the opportunity to meet Andy himself. To win, you’ve got to email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject ANDY C MEET & GREET; include your full name, as well as the name of your favorite RAM Records release and a reason why you should win; we iwll only accept entries before Thursday at 3PM EST. For those unfamiliar with RAM, this night will be the perfect opportunity to get an education. Get into the mode by checking out this 30 minute mix from RAM’s most recent compilation release, RAM Drum & Bass USA, Vol. 1.
