The creative d’n’b quartet Rudimental have recently released their debut record Home – on the 29th April, to be exact. The guys don’t waste their time – since 2010 onwards they have risen to major success. The track titled Feel The Love, which is a collab with John Newman, was their first No.1 single to top the UK Official singles chart and not only – they’ve conquered the rest of Europe, Australia and New Zealand as well.
No more than a year later, the Hackney youngsters are back on the top with Waiting All Night, which features Ella Eyre. In 12 months, they have succeeded in topping the charts twice and they also managed to leave behind, in No.2 spot, #ThatPower by Will.i.am & Justin Bieber, by selling 38,000 copies more. In total Waiting All Night managed to reach 107,000 sales.
The video, accompanying Waiting All Night, is inspiring and heart breaking at the same time. It tells the story of Kurt Yaeger, a professional BMX biker and a notable member of the X Games. The video shows us his difficult transition from the accident to his full recovery.
But let’s get back to Rudimental and their album Home, which was released on 29th April by Asylum Records. Taking into account that the quartet’s main influences come from the likes of Shuggie Otis, Parliament Funkadelic and Major Lazer, we can be sure that the album will be anything but boring. In Home, they combine hip hop, soul, jungle and drum and bass. The result is incredible! You can have a look at the complete album here:
