Ram is an independent record label established in 1992 by Andy C with the help of close friend Ant Miles. It is one of the major labels specialising in drum and bass.

The label and business today is run by Andy C and business partner Scott Bourne (Red One).[1] Ram Records is a multi award winning organisation for its label activities, the music it releases, and the artists it has signed over the years.[2] As well as Ram's musical output, the label is also very well known for its club nights, the most famous of which started at the London nightclub 'The End', and lasted 11 years till the club's closure in December 2008.[3] Moving on from The End to super-club Matter in February 2009, Ram's attendees tripled from 1000 to over 3000 people within 2 months and lasted till Matter's closure in June 2010.[4] Ram's new home is Fabric nightclub in Farringdon, London. In 2002 RAM launched a sister label called Frequency, and to celebrate a double decade of RAM in 2012 a new label called PROGRAM was launched, specialising in different flavours of drum and bass compared to the signature sounds of RAM.

The first PROGRAM release was by Frankee with the tune Firethorn, with Pandorum on the B side.[5] In 2013 PROGRAM released its first volume called Programmed, featuring songs from Nitri, Audio & Meth, EastColors and Paul B. Moving Fusion's Turbulance was instrumental in moving RAM forward in the early 2000s and was the number one voted-for track in drum and bass at the Mercury Music Prize in 2000.
