A new musical force has hit the scene and they’re called Rudimental. Showcasing a catalog that spans drum and bass, soul, garage, jungle and house, the UK chart-toppers are lapping their peers with their ridiculous versatility. Their lead single, “Feel The Love” featuring John Newman blew up at #1 in the UK and was named iTunes’ Dance Song of the Year – watch the accompanying beautiful wintery video above. What you know about some horse racing in city streets?!
At the end of last year, the group also released their video for “Not Giving In,” which also features John Newman along with Alex Clare. The music moves through moods and tempos, keeping the listening experience interesting and engaging; the high adrenaline overtone carries welcome elements of soul and pop, creating a highly palatable sound for a universal appeal. And once again, the neighborhood centric storytelling and cinematography for the video is brilliant – find it after the jump.
“Hell Could Freeze” is yet another recent-ish single for the sampling and features Angel Haze. For those of you we’ve now got hooked, the good news is that this one is a free download on the Rudimental website.
After the jump, find the group live in session with their super soulful tune, “Baby.”
Look out for an album sometime this spring! Also, the group today announced a string of US tour dates (find below) that include appearances at Ultra Music Festival (Miami), SXSW (Austin), as well as stops in NYC, San Francisco, and LA.
