Six years since it launched, the UK label has put together a retrospective compilation.
Described by RA's Jordan Rothlein as a "hotbed of low-end weirdness," Ramp has spent the past six years charting the outer regions of bass music—juke, post-dubstep, experimental hip-hop, and so on, though titles like these rarely do the records justice. The label has highlighted square peg artists like SBTRKT, FaltyDL, Dro Carey and Zomby, who released some of his early singles through the main imprint and Brainmath, one of its three subsidiaries (which has a collection of its own coming up). The upcoming compilation looks back on Ramp's catalog so far, with 17 of the tracks that have made it a label of note today.

02. Pattie Blingh & The Akebulan - Five Brother: The Point (2562 Remix)
03. Clouds - Timekeeper (Ras G Remix)
04. Computer Jay - Distance
05. FaltyDL - To London
06. Shortstuff - A Rustling
07. Maxmillion Dunbar - Bare Feet
08. Desto - Disappearing Reappearing Ink
09. SBTRKT & Sampha - Evening Glow
10. Doc Daneeka - Hold On

13. FaltyDL - Hip Love (Jamie xx Remix)
14. NOCHEXXX - Charro

Ramp Recording will release Ramp 50 on March 26th, 2012.
