If the name Rudimental is still new to your ears — listen up now. The quartet’s LP Home has already hit number one in the UK (it was original released in late April of this year), and now ahead of its US release next week, the group has made all twelve tracks available for stream, courtesy of SPIN. Many of the group’s records, songs like “Feel The Love,” “Spoons,” “Waiting All Night,” and “Hell Could Freeze” have already seen massive success as singles — and for good cause. Like other artists like Disclosure, AlunaGeorge, and Bondax, Rudimental are promoting a quality and accessible UK sounds across Atlantic waters with influences from ’90s house, jungle, two-step, and beyond. They’re getting noticed, and fast (even Beyonce has declared herself a fan).
Rudimental’s ”Feel the Love” debuted nearly a year ago as the English electronic band’s biggest single to date. With its jive-worthy instrumentation and raspy vocal track from John Newman, the single displayed a keen R&B overtone, making it a prime candidate for a remix from Kill Paris. The LA producer has preserved the soulful, yearning appeal of the original while cutting the tempo in half for some affable drumstep/glitch hop. Kill Paris’s morphing bass is present throughout, as are his familiar lighthearted melodies. The cheerful remix is out now on Big Beat Records.

Rudimental releases ‘Not Giving In’ with string of phenomenal remixes from Phaeleh, Bondax, Loadstar
UK foursome Rudimental has released “Not Giving In,” their follow-up single to the summer smash “Feel the Love.” Along with a the original track, which can only be described as a blissed-out, inspirational, and gospel-like drum and bass anthem, the group signed up Phaeleh, Bondax, Loadstar for remix duties. Phaeleh gives the track his signature cinematic bass feel while Bondax ups the ante on the bass to make the track really bounce, island style. Loadstar rounds it out with a trippy rework and almost a frenetic rearrangement of the original rhythms. Listen to all four tracks after the break.
