Are you a hardcore Drum and Bass fan, who might want to see the genre in a different light? A former raver whose legs can't hack the late nights in the pit anymore? Or are you a fan of orchestral music, who likes seeing the art form pushed in new directions? Whatever the case, if you identify with any of this, then RAM records' latest edition of their iconic OrchestRAM night will be right up your street. 

Of all the numerous highlights from RAM Records' 30th-anniversary celebrations, their OrchestRAM night, an epic performance of RAM’s biggest hits performed by the Guildhall Session Orchestra, was the pinnacle. Having sold out three nights in September, the orchestra, composed of professional alumni from Guildhall School of Music & Drama, has been invited once again to perform an updated version of the show at the world-famous Barbican on Saturday, March 11th in London for one night only.

Featuring orchestral renditions from classic RAM releases, this performance is one like no other. Including tracks from names such as Chase & Status, Wilkinson, Sub Focus, Origin Unknown, DJ Fresh, and RAM Trilogy, mixed with interpretations of more recent releases from the likes of Mandidextrous, Culture Shock, Mob Tactics, Andy C and Raiser, you'll be hearing your favourite tracks from sweaty nights in the rave like never before.

The first performances of this night were further complemented by the incredible, festival-like, production and a whole host of vocalists, including surprise guest Becky Hill, that craft a sound that respects the genre, whilst also getting the best out of the orchestral arrangements.

For those who got to experience OrchestRAM back in September, we don't need to tell you how unique an event it was, and we are sure that it'll live long in the memory. However, this night in March is said to be an even bigger offering and one of the coolest events on the calendar in 2023.
