Love Bug

Ramsey & Fen's seminal Love Bug returns re-wound and refreshed for 2009.

Originally surfacing on the UK Garage underground in 1997 and finally seeing a commercial release in 2000, Love Bug still sounds fresh and with UK bassline / garage dons The Wideboys added production twists it's been brought bang up to date.

Ramsey & Fen's roots are firmly in UK garage being one of the original DJ crews to emerge around the scene and they took this knowledge to the studio teaming up with legendary garage producer, MJ Cole and vocalist Lynsey Moore to lay down the massive anthem, Love Bug.

The Wideboys need little introduction, currently riding high on the bassline wave, Jim & Eddie have a slew of current hits and remix credits to their name, along side mixing top selling bassline compilations.

On their Bassline mixes they push all the right buttons for a bouncing b-line groove full of hooky fx that has already been tearing up garage clubland from limited CDR. Their Miami Mix goes for a chunky 4x4, disco house infused sound complete with sweeping strings and ballsy brass sections.

Equally legendary UK garage hero Matt Jam Lamont adds his touches on the Kings Of Swing remixes, going for a bumping 4x4 garage sound driven by piano and organ plus a cool 'm1' lick for a 90's style sound.

Ramsey himself rounds off the package with an equally bumping 4x4 garage mix that adds a stabby and synthy lead and sombre strings for a deeper mix.

Set for a late August release expect this to be tearing up UK garage clubland over the summer as well as roasting dancefloors across the Med from Ibiza to Ayia Napa.



 
Biography
 
East London-born Ramsey, grew up on a musical diet of soul, rare groove & jazz funk. He first took to the turntables in 1985, he was also to be found on Jonathan Ross's Channel 4 music show 'Soul Train'. Ramsey's DJing started off as a hobby, but stepped up a gear when pirate stations launched in his local area Hackney. Ramsey began spinning on Defection, and Rush FM, where he was amongst the likes of Shabba D, Mixmaster Max, MC Wallace and Goldie, who would come and MC for him during his sets. Ramsey returned to his soulfuyl roots and began to spin US garage, having decided that the increasingly tight-jungle scene was hard to break into. He started a Saturday morning garage Rush FM, testing our early scene-shaping tracks from the likes of Nightcrawlers and Robin S. The show got plenty of response and Ramsey started getting bookings to play garage in the back rooms at nights 'Roast' ( along side Norris Windross, Matt Jam Lamont & Karl Brown) as well as underground garage haunts such as east London's 'Dungeons'. Ramsey met future DJing partner Dj Fen, through a friend on an off chance meeting in a local phone shop. Ramsey invited Fen on to Freek FM 101.8 (his current station at the time) . This was to be the star of th nationally known duo ' Ramsey & Fen'. Ramsey & Fen also began playing out at the station's own night 'freek in the Manor' as well as the majority of the UK garge scene's founding clubs like 'La Cosa Nostra', Zoo's ' Lord of the Underground', Rhythm Promotions 'The Breakfast Club', Sun City,Numb Nums - (as residents) and Twice as Nice' forerunner, The Arches. Ramsey & Fen decided to leave Freek FM to found their own pirate station called 'London Underground'. It was through London Underground that Ramsey & Fen got their first remix work, when the Trinity/SOUR studio and label (friend of the station's backers) asked Ramsey & Fen to provide garage mixes of Kim Mazelle's 'Big Baby' and 'Quality' which quickly became undergrounds anthems. As club DJs, Ramsey & Fen have played across the globe, reaching Japan, Switzerland, Amsterdam (playing at the massive Dance Valley Festival) Tenerife, Turkey and of course Ayia Napa Cyprus. Ramsey & Fen have always retained their love of radio, and in the late 90's the pair guested on legal stations and have delved into music TV having filmed an appearance on a Wise Buddha pilot production. Ramsey & Fen stepped up the studioworl once more, kicking off with the excellent single Favourite part of me - (featuring Pay As You Go's Maxwell D) which was soon signed onto the massive BMG label. This wasnt their first time they found themselves talking to senior executives at a major label, Ramsey & Fens classic anthem 'Lovebug' was picked up by Nebula, a sub division of Virgin Records. Although major success seemed to come easy to the duo, they still worked on their underground label 'BUG Records' linking up with up & coming artists to produce anthem after anthem. Ramsey is currently working on many more exciting projects that are due hit streets soon.
