Rudimental have a mission – to bring soul to electronic music. And so far, their mission has been a success.
There’s no doubt about it, British electronic outfit Rudimental have arrived. And in style!
Their smash hit single ‘Feel The Love’ blazed into the UK charts debuting at number 1 on both the single and dance charts. If that’s not enough, they smashed the previous week’s chart topper out of the water by a whopping 23,000 units! And, when the previous week’s #1 spot was ‘Fun featuring Janelle Monae’s ‘We Are Young’, that’s certainly no mean feat.
Now they’re making some serious waves down here in Oz – ‘Feel The Love’ has already hit #1 on the iTunes singles and the iTunes dance charts AND peaked at #3 on the ARIA singles and national airplay charts!
The London based 4 piece have had their feet firmly planted in the underground music scene for sometime. Hailing from Hackney (a veritable hub for all things underground), the boys have crossed paths with some of the great pioneers of their craft over the years such as fellow East Londoners Plan B, Professor Green and Labrinth to name a few.
It’s also not surprising that the Rudimental boys have forged strong connections to their community in East London. All of the members have worked with troubled youth and strongly advocate music as an outlet for disadvantaged kids. This attitude was mirrored beautifully in the clip for ‘Feel The Love’. Filmed earlier this year in The US and based around the Fletcher Street Community Horse Riding Centre in Philadelphia which aims to do exactly that. The result is pretty spectacular. Feel good and moving at times, this clip is killer!
Now the London based lads get set to bring their anthemic electronic soul down under for the first time playing a string of intimate DJ sets. Feel The Love, already a favourite on Triple J, is gearing up to be a massive summer hit. One thing’s for certain, Rudimental will be dominating dance floors and airwaves alike in the coming months and these exclusive shows are not to be missed. They will sell out!
