Whatever genre of urban music you support, the chances are you've already been 'rocked by RAMPAGE'. This DJ ensemble is recognised in the UK's club land as one of the most consistent and successful urban music specialists to date.

Since their launch in 1990 and with over 40 years combined experience, London based Rampage have enjoyed phenomenal success, covering International Clubs, Radio DJ'ing, Presenting and Promotions. Since 1995 they have also impacted other music related areas with their talent for, Production, Song Writing, Re-mixing and Artist Development. Rampage's infrastructure also includes Marketing, Artist Management, Graphics and Design, and Marketing.

Rampage have been awarded such accolades as: 'Best Newcomers of 1993' - When their stage at Europe's largest annual street festival, London's Notting Hill Carnival attracted over 100,000 revellers. 'Best DJ' - at the 1995 Black Music Awards. 'Best Filmed Club' - by ITV's, BPM programme, who aired the Rampage recording three times and nominated an unprecedented 5 times in recent times for the MOBOS best club and best radio DJ. Other recent accolades include a Sony Silver award for a live simulcast between London, Cyprus and Spain on Radio 1 and 1xtra and being voted 2nd best radio show in the country by industry respected Campaign magazine.

Rampage's production and re-mixing skills have been utilised by major companies, Universal/MCA and RCA. Their song writing credits include a track on the 'Red Hot and Latin' album. In 1995 Rampage released their debut album 'Priority One', which produced a Top 40 single and a video that also made the Top 3 on the Box. Rampage's talent for production and artist development, were very significant too and resulted in London Records recently signing, brand new singing sensation, Lifford. As well as co-producing underground hits such as Melody with Masterstepz.

Rampage have co-promoted and organised live events, alongside London's premier Independent Radio Stations, Kiss FM and Choice FM. They have also successfully brought over many top US R'n'B acts for sold out UK performances and appeared on many UK tours including platinum selling artists, Snoop Dogg, Dr Dre, Jay-Z, Dru Hill and SWV and UK artists such as Artful dodger and Miss Dynamite.

Rampage continue to host shows up and down the country and have an established nation-wide following. It is normal to attend a live concert in the UK with top R'n'B artists such as Usher or Jay-Z and find Rampage rocking the audience before, between and after performances. A large part of the crowd will definitely let you know that it's Rampage they've come to hear.

Rampage's most proven skill, is knowing what to deliver to their audience. There is a current worry among Major UK recording companies regarding the marketing of UK R'n'B. Rampage have no such worries, they have never underestimated the importance of performing to a live audience and are in touch with the market on a world-wide level.

2006 saw Rampage consolidate its position on the U.K club circuit with the continued success of club nights that they launched back in 2001, Heart and Soul (a prestigious up market brand), and 2 Rooms of Funk and Obssesion. Rampage has also consolidated their international appeal by hosting a regular R&B night in Dubai. Recently, Rampage expanded further into the summer holiday clubbing circuit by establishing a weekly night in Malia as well as maintaining their Saturday nights in Ayia Napa and monthly appearances in Ibiza, Barcelona, Athens, Magaluf and Malta.

The period August 2002 to December 2010 saw Rampage presenting on the 1st national radio station for fans of black music (BBC 1xtra) where  the station continued to prosper with Mike and T hosting the popular breakfast show from Monday to Friday.

A spokesperson for Rampage summed it all up by saying: 'Rampage connects directly to the hearts of the people on the dancefloor - because we provide the beats'.
