Andy c was just 16 when this was released , how did a 16 year old in 1992 afford a sampler, computer, dat recorder & synths , then the money to set a label up

essential. this is a 4 tracker of a-sides with excellent production and dancefloor usability.

This release sold around 2,500 copies, initially self-distributed by Andy C & Ant Miles. It was funded with a £1,000 loan from Andy's uncle.

Pressed at Orlake in Dagenham (one of three record pressing plants owned by EMI Records in the U.K., it was sold off in about 2001).
Orlake was the only vinyl pressing plant in the U.K. that could produce square vinyl records and shaped picture discs.

For me the track on this awesome Ep has to be Mind Rise with it's haunting acid bleep sample's which were also used on Ram's elusive next release in the track Losin U on the Eastern Promise Ep. Like most of of Andy C's early production's this Ep is a fine collection of the pioneering early breakbeat Hardcore sound.

Ram kick starts with an amazing release! The quality of sound is quite poor but thats what you get for producing vinyl in 1992!! The bad sound quality only makes it that much better because you can understand how old skool these tunes are. The A Side, Visions is a monster track, this shows Andy C is and allways will be a king in drum n bass & jungle.

All about Mind Rise on this one for me, slamming breaks sit perfectly alongside a killer bassline making this an essential part of any good late 92 set. The only problem was that its not the easiest of tunes to mix, though I think the RAM boys made up for that with their later releases!

Not the best RAM release by any means, but a very solid (and sought after!) 12 from the one Andy C.

Blinding first release from Ram, production sounds dated now but you can't argue with the innnovation. Interesting listening for those who have followed the RAM label, you can definitely hear the proto-sound of later Ram releases in these tunes.
