Respected black dance music DJ Jo Wallace was commissioned to create a bespoke track to accompany 2014's must see exhibition 'Return of the Rudeboy' by its creators, Dean Chalkley and Harris Elliott.
In order to deliver the track in a limited vinyl format, Jo had to create a label....thus, Ramrock was born. Tipping the brim of a pork pie hat in the direction of the glorious heyday of Jamaican rocksteady, Jo tailored the sound to fit the flavour of the exhibition - more Argyle socks than on the rocks.
Gathering together the production skills of the legendary Ashley Beedle, the talents of musical supremo Darren Morris and the mighty MC D'Oxman, Jo oversaw the whole project in the studio even lending a hand on backing vocals and percussive teacup.
Jo has now been allocated tracks from Adrian Sherwood's mighty On-U Sounds catalogue for exclusive vinyl only release. Jeb Loy Nicols and L.S.K are due for release on May 15th, 2015. Watch out for a summer release for an original Jo Wallace production in collaboration with Ghetto Priest and Taz, Mark Professor, Andre Espeut and a few other surprise artists.
There's a Versions Galore LP in the pipeline.....exciting times!!
