    Wowwwwww. Who even listens to RAM anymore? I don't think they've released a good tune since the early/mid 00's. ahahah I'm not at all surprised by this news.

    "Forthcoming Ram records" thread needs to be changed accordingly I think. @$marty can you sort that out please immediately. "Forthcoming Ram/SONY/BMG" thread, need to keep that thing up to date

    Oh my fucking days. That 'PULL IT UP SELECTAH' button at the end of the article; every single website needs that. Speakers were turned up and I shat my pants.

    It was just a matter of time. The only thing that surprises me about it is that it wasn't Universal that bought them

    In the last two years, I think I've enjoyed at most 6 tunes from RAM. Not surprised to see them head into stuff like this.

    Ugh wish this had happened when I was still in my twenties so I could write huge forum posts about how bad it was that Ram sold out.

    Tell you what, the actual funniest thing that could possibly happen here is that their output improves.

    To be fair, it couldn't be that hard for them to improve judging from current output. :teeth:

    I was going to type out something thoughtful like maybe it will encourage a new generation and people will get into the genre etc. Then I realised that I really really don't care.

    Hope ProgRAM survives this, not too fussed about the main label because it's not really my cup of tea in it's current state.

    Not bothered by this news. So many labels out there that are much more deserving of my time and money

    Enjoy listening to Sub Focus feat Ellie Goulding and Audio feat Ed Sheeran

    Finally it happened. Now this is interesting for me since, I'm an investor as well.

    First and foremost, IT IS NOT PART of Sony, but of a German multinational called
    Bertelsmann SE & Co KGaA: http://www.bertelsmann.com/#st-1

    They are a private company and to be perfectly honest looking at their data, they might actually help RAM.

    and please don't bitch because RAM was bought by a private company, this will always take place in the future and in my opinion, it is about time, that D&B has a label that has a global market presence. All other genres have at least one, (even ffs techno which I consider more 'underground' than D&B)
