"St.Ockwell" by RAMP must be the best 7" I've heard on ENRAPTURED for three or four years, nice hummable melodic electronica...
Starts off to the sound of a whirring nursery like chime and steadily grows in stature until it manifests sweetly into a darling brew of exotically sultry solar-scapes that all in all make it quite possibly one of the most arresting things we've heard...
More reviews will be made available as they appear!

Some reviews of Ramp and "Bedroom Ambience 4"
Some people have listened to "Bedroom Ambience 4", and then written down what they thought. Awesome!
"...smouldering stuff equally engaging are the melting melodies and skipping beats of the breathlessly optimistic ‘Yellow Cake’ by Ramp."
"[evokes] diving for pearls in the South China sea with a mermaid"
Ramp on Enraptured
The fourth in the excellent "Bedroom Ambience" series on Enraptured Records ("Good Vibrations") has a track by Ramp on it - "Yellowcake". It's being released in February and will be available in all good record stores... you should go and buy it in vast quantities.
