Ram Records

BMG, clearly bored of just acquiring everything, has made a strategic investment in drum n bass label Ram Records. The label will remain independent, owned by founder Andy C.

BMG UK’s EVP Alexi Cory-Smith said: “If ever a label could be said to have defined a genre, it’s Ram. We are delighted to be able to help Andy C and Scott take Ram to the next level”.

Andy C and his there mentioned business partner Scott Bourne then roared together, alternating between words, which made it really hard to understand what they were saying, but I managed to get it down: “We have worked with lots of companies over the years, but BMG really get it. We have been incredibly impressed by Alexi and her team, and we are very excited at being able to tap into BMG’s infrastructure and resources”.

The first release under the new partnership will be Andy C’s own new single, appropriately titled ‘New Era’.
