The 100th part of #Program’s discography is about to drop and with it you’re reminded of a huge part of the imprint’s history, spanning across a colossal number of releases and representing an important section of the drum & bass underground. Split into three parts, #Program 100 will realign you with the sounds which gained the international attention which Ram’s sister label now enjoys, having broken away from its counterpart whilst creating its own place within the dance music market. For its first package, you’re given remixes, exclusives and VIPs as part of the Sampler. And these include tracks which have been heralded as this year’s most sought after dubs, by the likes of trend setting players such as #UKF and #RedBull.
Marking the first part of its track listing, the growling #Skantia rework of #LoKo’s ‘#BasslineSecret’ will be a welcome introduction for many drum & bass listeners. #RamRecords stalwarts #Calyx & #Teebee then have their take on #Legion & #Logam’s ‘#HouseofCards’, before #Eastcolors' ‘#Toys’ gets the VIP treatment. #Fascad makes his #Program debut with ‘#Bull’ and #Eazy’s ‘#Lushen’ oozes with the technical #Program vibe. Rounding off the sampler is #GlitchCity & #NightShift’s ‘#SpidersWeb’ and they make their first appearance on #Program yet fit perfectly within its ranks, delivering a murkier undertow from their usual offerings. In just six tracks, the label’s team have painstakingly selected music which defines its journey, from its beginnings to now. So once again, it’s time to get with the #Program, although this time its for its most expansive sequence to date.
