    Aparently RAM & Hospitality now have residencies there starting next early next year.

    "On 6 Feb, the Ram crew will smash into matter with unprecedented force, dynamically showcasing how much the label has developed since its star and owner Andy C first started it (with the legendary Ant Miles) as a young boy in Essex in 1992. Ram is forever setting the standard for the rest of the scene, consistently growing from strength to strength – from the vibes of the Origin Unknown (a moniker for Andy & Ant) milestone ‘Valley of the Shadows,’ to the booming sounds of Shimon, to cutting edge Moving Fusion classics, to the scene-altering ‘Bodyrock’ anthem, to hypnotic dubs from Sub Focus, to the most recent explosion of dub-laden duo Chase & Status. Ram brings the harder edge of drum & bass, breeding immense beats and basslines aimed straight at the dancefloor, yet all of their productions are stamped with an unmatched sense of musicality. Their back catalogue is as arresting as it is historic – the label is truly a seminal and irreplaceable landmark in the expansion of the genre.

    Ram was the first and longest-running D&B residency at The End and the nights were a continual roadblock; hundreds of bass-hungry fans would wait patiently in epic queues, eagerly awaiting a thunderous set from the incomparable leader of Ram, and the D&B scene as a whole, Andy Clarke. There are drum & bass DJs, and then there’s Andy C. After all these years of playing at least three gigs a weekend, he still never fails to engage a crowd reaction that’s unparalleled. Come witness his intense sonic tricks, double-drops and quick-mixing cuts aplenty, alongside our Pixel Addicts’ visuals.

    For the launch of matter, Ram called upon some of their biggest luminaries and most closely-aligned peers, and even took a chance to embrace a few unexpected stars (with dubstep’s finest: Skream, Caspa, Youngsta, Plastician).

    “2009 will see D&B move into its new home at quite possibly the most ground-breaking venue on the planet. In the same way fabric did 10 years ago, matter will completely change the D&B party experience. We couldn't be happier to be at the forefront of this with the legendary Hospital family.”- RAM"

    I swear that was your first 'big' rave out, how can you be worrying about the mid range and treble? Not to sound rude or anything but even now thats not the first thing that concerns me.

    The line-up is fucking HUGE.
