INFO > Simon Rogers’ diverse resume includes composing music for ballets, a stint in South American folk group Incantation, jamming with Mark E. Smith in The Fall, producing albums for Peter Murphy and The Lightning Seeds, and scoring television programs. As DJ Streets Ahead, Shem McCauley remixed Betty Boo, Was (Not Was), Roxanne Shante, Digital Underground, James Brown, Herb Alpert and others in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Rogers and McCauley first worked together on the single “Electrofear” by short-lived electro collective Nation 12, after which they remixed “Winter In July” by Bomb The Bass. The duo then honed their house skills as Ramp, delivering loads of distinct remixes during the mid-1990s. First released in 1994, “Rock The Discotek” was Ramp’s second single; this reissue features vocals by Ricardo Da Force and new mixes from Loaded labelmates Pizzaman (Norman Cook) and Play Boys (John Reid and Tim Jefferey, who also founded the label).

  1. R.I.P Mr Shem Mcauley. The genius that gave us everything RAMP / SLACKER etc .. Sadly passed last week ….

    A legend is lost ….

    • I am shocked and saddened. I emailed with Shem many years ago while attempting to compile a discography of his work. He was very cordial and most helpful – a really decent guy and an incredibly talented producer. This is a tremendous loss.
