Murdock gives us his pick of tracks from artists playing at RAMPAGE
RAMPAGE is heralded as the biggest drum & bass and dubstep party in the world, and for this year’s edition, they’ll be taking over ten clubs in the same city, dedicated to the household names of these two genres. Scheduled to take place once again in Belgium’s Antwerp, some of the most well-known figures from across bass music will be hitting stages with even greater levels of festival-like production, only adding to the music’s stage presence as their next historic event returns this March 10th-11th 2023.
With the weekender’s first night taking place throughout Antwerp, within its most seminal spaces, RAMPAGE will also be remaining in Sportpaleis for the Saturday evening, featuring multiple headline acts alongside the series most mind-blowing light shows to date for the first time in both genres history. Names like Whipped Cream, Eptic, Alix Perez, Mollie Collins, Riot Ten, Buunshin and RAMPAGE founder Murdock will find themselves playing to tens of thousands across this forthcoming weekend. From more intimate club settings through to the monumental space of Sportpaleis.
Including takeovers from formative brands such as UKF, Eptic Presents The End of The World, 1985, Monstercat, Eatbrain, Space Invaderz, PRSPCT, Liquid Ritual, Dub Valley, Chillhop, Vissa and Stu Bru, they’ll be curating nights which feature the artists who’ve helped create their formidable platforms. It’s another chapter in a much-loved showcase, one which calls on even more tastemakers to take centre stage alongside lineups which get weightier year after year.
With accessible, affordable train travel throughout Europe, even from the UK, RAMPAGE is a melting pot for dance music lovers from across the globe. This highly anticipated meet up will be the most explosive yet. With tickets moving fast at economical prices due to the event being split across multiple venues, it will introduce an even greater audience to the the sounds which have made RAMPAGE such a notorious staple for dance music throughout the world.
To coincide with this momentous outing of greats, RAMPAGE founder and all-around great guy Murdock has put together a playlist of some of his favourite tracks from some of the artists penned to perform at this years event. There are still tickets available but it is very likely to sell out very soon, so move quickly if you want to experience this unique event. My advice, if you’ve never witnessed the might of RAMPAGE before and are still on the fence, do yourself a favour and find a way to get there. It is like nothing you will have experienced before!

Alix Perez ‘Solitary Native’
This song put me onto Alix Perez a long, long time ago. Perfect use of a classic sample by a Belgian native.
Ray Volpe ‘Laserbeam’
The most played, highest rated, best-selling dubstep track of 2022. Of course we would bring this guy to Rampage.
Macky Gee & Murdock ‘Hear This!’
The man is a modern day legend and we always enjoy having him back in the house.
Major Lazer ‘Get Free’ (Andy C remix)
For a while, Andy C had the remix game on lock. This one is an all-time favourite of mine.
Young gun from Belgium who’s starting to bring the big guns. Belters on belters!
Eptic ‘Like A Boss’
Stone. Cold. Classic. Hailing from Belgium and taking the world by storm, Spider Mike keeps smashing it.
The man can do no wrong, really. He just landed his first number 1 on Beatport but I’ll be forever reaching for this one.
I just can’t get enough of this one and luckily the same goes for the crowds I get to play this to every week.
DJ Hazard ‘Air Guitar’
Yes, he’s the Mr Happy guy. And he did Bricks Don’t Roll. But he’s got TONNES of classics besides those. This one is a great example.
Such a mean track. When the acids come in, it’s over. Whatever you mix this into, it just rips.
Dirtyphonics ‘Scorpion’ (Tantrum Desire remix)
I’m always happy to have Jay Tantrum Desire on board. Nice guy, good dj, great producer and such a unique sound.
Freaks & Geaks ft Ruth Royal ‘Discovery’
First release by the drum & bass alias of Doctor P and Phil Roksonix, with Ruth on top. This should have been a hit.
Murdock ft Sena & Shystie ‘Can’t Keep Me Down’
It just recently hit 10 million streams and it just keeps getting the big singalong vibes anytime I reach for it.
From his very first release! I instantly knew we had something special here.
Madcore ‘There is no point to any of this’
360 physical master the swing! I obviously don’t understand dubstep because it beats me how this hasn’t taken over the world by now.
For those wanting to stream the playlist seamlessly then we have also created a Spotify playlist to make your lives easier!
Once again…More info and tickets can be found here!
