Ramp Recordings represents the UK based independent music label launched in 2004 and run by Tom Kerridge.

The british label’s roster reads like a veritable who’s who of modern underground dance music. From the label’s beginnings it’s strived to do something different – in the first instance it was a vehicle for hip hop artsits like MF Doom collaborator Count Bass D and Kan Kick to house their full length experimentations in sound – and with releases from iconic producers like Zomby, Ras G and FaltyDL, along with singles from people like Shortstuff, Slugabed, Clouds, TOKiMONSTA, Nochexxx, Hypno, Bad Autopsy and Teeth, the label’s carved itself a reputation without ever confining itself to a particular niche.

Admittedly, it’s kind of hard to expect something from RAMP. There may have been a glut of dancefloor structured records, but they all approach the medium in a completely different way and for every smiling, jump-up ‘Break Off’ by SBTRKT there’s a blunted beat sketch by Ras G or a compilation of lesser known Scandinavian synthesizer funk music. It’s a petering balance and it’s one that magically never seems to even itself out. The label’s successful offshoots PTN and 4th Wave are much more streamlined in their direction, but with RAMP it’s um… a little bit different.

“RAMP is all over the place,” label owner Tom Kerridge agrees graciously; “even the more linear dance music it releases is pretty haphazard. It probably most reflects how I am as a person, and the way I listen to music. When I started PTN and signed Hackman & Doc Daneeka, I saw it as my opportunity to do something more organised - I gave myself the opportunity to step out of myself when I want to, and it's been really liberating.”

Kerridge’s endeavors have bought his empire to a lot of people’s attention. His artists repeatedly sing his praises and it’s refreshing to see someone in a position of power be so visiably excitable when it comes to new music. Ahead of RAMP’s debut collaboration with FABRICLIVE (their Room Three takeover occurs on Friday 2nd December) he made us an incredible mix that features a wealth of forthcoming material from his artists so excitedly we sat down and quizzed Kerridge about his motivations…

“I started RAMP as there wasn't anything else in the world that really made me happy. I was doing a fine art degree, which as much as I love art, just didn't hold my attention. I worked my way through various jobs, again, nothing really sparked my imagination or excited me.

Moreover, the catalogue is as good an emblem as any of where so much of the promise in UK dance music presently lies – namely the blurry hinterlands between dubstep, UK funky and garage. Zomby aside, Shortstuff, Hot City and Slugabed have all been on the books, as have like-minded counterparts from overseas such as Desto and Falty DL.

Sublabels: Brainmath, Fourth Wave, PTN.
