It’s been a long time coming, and with a roster that most other labels would pawn their offices for, RAMP Recordings are set to hold their first official event at the Lightbox in Vauxhall, London.
Championed nearly weekly by Mary Anne Hobbs, and heavily backed by Gilles Peterson, L.A. resident and newly signed Tokimonsta makes the flight all the way from L.A. for an exclusive London show. Recently accepted to the RBMA 2010 in London, back home Toki rolls with Flying Lotus and fellow RAMP label mate Ras G, and is readying her “Cosmic Intoxication” EP, which is set to drop soon. Next to step up, and with a debut live PA show no less, is SBTRKT & Sampha, performing amongst other future garage joints, the highly anticipated RAMP single ”Break Off”, currently being battered by Annie Mac & Sinden, and highly tipped for huge success next year. Joining Toki from the planet's current hot bed of talent that is L.A., P.U.D.G.E follows his astounding session for Mary Anne Hobbs with his European debut show, dropping knowledge from his upcoming “Idiot Box” LP. The RAMP contingent is in full effect, with funky/garage monkey Shortstuff, A.D.H.D. riddled problem child Slugabed, and the big boss man, Tom@RAMP, a.k.a. The White Suge Knight, firing bullets from behind the decks.
