Georgefm.co.nz is extremely excited to be the first in the world to stream Rudimental's new album 'Home'! Listen to it here first! Going live at 9pm Wednesday 24th April!
Bursting out of London’s underground music scene with its thrilling world of pirate radio, crude DJ set ups, improvised studios, and bleeding edge beats, come Rudimental – a pioneering melting-pot collective who have taken the British music scene by storm.
HOME, their debut album will be released on Friday, April 26.
Rudimental have achieved global recognition at lightning speed, starting when their huge drum & bass-meets-soul anthem ‘Feel The Love’ climbed radio and sales charts around the globe.
Taking a traditional songwriting approach as much as an electronic one in their music making, Rudimental mix live instrumentation with digital programming. As vocalist Piers Aggett says, “Our sound is organic. It’s the result of years of raving, listening to pirate radio, listening to dubs, to tapes older brothers would bring home, and being inspired by all of it. We’re products of our individual musical journeys and of London”.
Freeing themselves from one specific sound and the shackles of creating electronic music with a laptop, the boys take influence from each other’s varying musical strengths and their unifying starting point (Hackney). Around them in Hackney the band have found a well of untapped talent. This extended family or wider orbiting collective also includes a wealth of musicians from vocalists to brass players, percussionists and string players. The result on stage sounds, and feels, like a genuine carnival: brimming with spontaneous energy and infectious to all.
As the band say “What unites us all really is our love of soulfulness on the dance floor. We want people to dance and to feel something”. This band of writers, musicians and DJs are an example of possessing that rare thing: a collective of innovators seamlessly coming together and striking gold.
HOME is out on Friday, April 26 and can be pre-ordered now from iTunes and JB Hi-Fi.
