In-Store: Ramjac Corporation

Acid house legend Ramjac Corportation performs a live reel-to-reel set at Inverted Audio Record Store in Peckham on Saturday 4th May.

Ramjac Corportation is the production alias of UK-based sound artist, programmer and percussionist Paul Chivers, one of the UK’s unsung electronic pioneers, known for his voltaic live shows during the heady Summer of Love in 1988 and beyond.

Jamming his own flavour of sampled beats live from his Atari and Emulator, Ramjac performed at the now legendary Sunrise, Energy and Back To The Future raves and went on to tour with Orbital, The Shaman and The Irresistible Force.

Ramjac's most famous track 'Cameroon Massif' - originally released on Irdial Discs in 1990, then reissued via Emotional Rescue in 2018 - is the sound of UK dance music exploding into myriad new trajectories. Synthetic textures and acid squelch tie the track to the strobe light optimism of a rave. Yet the intricately programmed beats and wandering structure leave you feeling it is channelling something far more free-form.

Having booked Ramjac Corporation to perform live at Farr Festival in 2018 at the Inverted Audio curated stage "Campfire Headphase", we are ecstatic to invite Paul to Inverted Audio Record Store for a very special live reel-to-reel set.
