With the imprint hitting its 30 year celebrations, it was only apt to remind fans of the calibre of new producers who have come through to help build such a historic platform. And part of the new generation of artists breaking through on RAM is Waypoint; a self-taught producer and audiophile, it was the formative listening of Andy C & Shimon’s ‘Quest’ which drew him to the genre. Now set to be debuted on the moniker which created his love for drum & bass, his forthcoming single ‘Forever / Myself Again’ with its warbling basslines and diced samples marks his graduation into a legendary roster.
‘Forever’ kicks off proceedings with summer-time, late night grooves inverting around the record’s sung hooks. Its reverse ‘Myself Again’ remains within the same soundscape, drawing jungle-influenced breaks and a vocal presence which adds harmony to the record. Introducing a brand new act, RAM remains at the forefront of innovation through names like Waypoint. A presence which will become a resounding part of the drum & bass microcosm as his sounds infiltrate clubs across the world over the coming months.
