Also playing will be friends of Ram and fellow Unique Artists Randall, DJ Hype, GQ and Flux.

Keeping things Ram Related........

May sees the next instalment in the Ram Trilogy series, ³The Screamer EP² available worldwide. Shimon has completed a remix for R&B group Evidence¹s new single forthcoming on Epic/Sony. Red One has been extremely busy lately. In between running Ram Records, Liftin¹ Spirit Records, Frequency Recordings and High Life Recordings, Red One has been able to make time to complete a remix of Fierce & Matrix¹s ³Tightrope², due out on Metro Recordings soon. Also watch for ³Pitch Switch² & ³Screwball² out on Liftin¹ Spirit in May, followed by remixes of hugely popular tunes ³Believe in U² and ³Don¹t Stop² (remixed by Matrix and Fierce) in late June.
After releasing the highly successful ³Start of Something² EP last year, the Moving Fusion boys have been dividing their time between touring the globe, gracing the pages of magazines such as DJ Mag, Musicmag and Knowledge and putting their energy into creating a remix EP, including remixes of dance floor stompers ³Reality² and ³Lazy Bones², 2003 seems set to be bigger and brighter than ever for Moving Fusion.

The usual steady flow of singles and remixes from Ed Rush and Optical may have slowed up in 2002, but rest assured the duo were doing anything but resting on their laurels. In between the consistent touring, the boys from Virus have been hard at work putting the finishing touches on their third album ³The Original Doctor Shade². This album looks set to broaden the Virus spectrum with collaborations from turntabilists The Scratch Perverts and house legend Seb Fontaine. Also featuring on the album is Virus¹s official MC, Ryme Tyme, who debuted on Dr Shade¹s predecessor ³The Creeps². Ryme Tyme has also been keeping his fingers in the production jar, with a release due soon on his own label 1210. Collaborating with Cause 4 Concern¹s Optive and New Zealand¹s Bulletproof, the LP will feature ³Camouflage² and ³Black Cell².
There is also a 1210 album in the works for later on this year.


After the hugely successful first release on Fierce¹s new label Quarantine last year, the next instalment looks set to drop in April. The follow-up features ³Carrier² and ³Bermuda² with Cause 4 Concern. Watch this space.... Quarantine will be dropping many more quality releases, establishing itself as a premier D&B label.


As per usual, Loxy & Ink have been keeping up the constant flow of heavy tunes. Next out on Cylon is ³Get Yours² by Ink and JW, the flipside being ³Deception² by Loxy and Damage. ³Headz Roll² by Loxy & Ink will be out on Metalheadz in the very near future. The heavy-hitting ³Instinct², which featured on last year¹s stunning ³Can You Draw Sound² EP is soon to be released in remix form on Architecture, featuring mixes from Dillinja, Dom & Roland and Twisted Individual. For all those who have yet to hear Ink¹s superb ³Future Shot Volume One² mix session, log on to www.breakbeat.co.uk to hear it in full. Look out for volume two coming soon....
