With 7 consecutive plays on A State of Trance, voted Future Favorite with a staggering 61.9% of the votes (the most votes ever @ ASOT) and Armin already calling “RAMelia” an all-time favorite, “RAMelia” eventually was voted #2 in the Tune of the Year on ASOT 2013.
The latest Grotesque concept, Grotesque “In Concert ” with Markus Schulz was a huge success and sold out, proving to be a suitable closing party of a very successful year for both Grotesque and RAM. In 2014 Grotesque also will be hosting the FSOE & Subculture Amsterdam Weekender and doing a club tour starting at the Gallery (MOS). In tandem with this RAM has launched the Grotesque radio show, which goes out weekly on Afterhours FM.
With a lot of new things to come, the new track in the “RAM” series, the start of the Grotesque Music label as well as the making of his debut album and great collaborations with the likes of Andy Moor and Christina Novelli, Betsie Larkin, Stine Grove, Sean Tyas, Arctic Moon, Sied van Riel and many more, 2014 looks very bright for RAM.
Despite his busy schedule the first two new tracks of RAM, “Kingdom of Dreams” and the collaboration with Arctic Moon, “Mirakuru” are already signed to ASOT and FSOE and have been released on March 31st ( Mirakuru) and April 28th (Kingdom of Dreams). “Kingdom of Dreams” and “RAMelia” are also on A State of Trance 2014 mixed by Armin van Buuren.
