There’s many a weight, mean and measure to test whether our Spring season’s finally, finally sprung. None are a more accurate bellwether though than the ever-reliable arrival of RAM’s ‘SpringEssentials’ selection. Right on cue 2018’s edition’s landed and it’s every bit as fresh of tune, audacious of mix and brilliantly Grotesque of nature as you’d imagine!
Seconded in 2018 to this most noble of endeavours are Scottish duo 2nd Phase. Collectively RAM, Stuart and Gary have assembled and mixed a 30+ collection of tracks that’ll blaze the trail into those longer days and later nights.
What do our mix trio have in store for you then? Well naturally you’ll find the latest from trance’s most established and dependable names. Releases and remixes from the studios of Ferry Corsten, Solarstone, Giuseppe Ottaviani, Mark Sherry, Richard Durand, Jordan Suckley (to mention but a handful) abound.
Younger guns are in with an equal crack of the whip too, as DIM3NSION, Skylex, Future Disciple, Lostly, Alex Di Stefano, Cold Blue and a whole host of others contribute their latest to this new-season-hailing opus.
Heaven forbid you go underserved by the mixers’ own oeuvre either! Marco V’s remix of RAM/Darren Porter collaboration ‘The Calling’ and Daniel Skyver’s elevating take on the classic ‘RAMore’ are quick to the Dutchman’s laser. As is ‘Serengeti’- RAM’s floor-fuelling 2018 studio team-up with Ciaran McAuley. Over on the second mix meanwhile, 2nd Phase rewire of Jordan Suckley & Kutski’s ‘Surveillance’ works up a mid-set storm, as does the lads’ ‘Midsummer Mushroom’ and ‘Hot Sauce’ club smashes.
