In the last year, Rudimental have swarmed ears with an impressive number of quality hit singles and caught the attention of audiences around the world. The quartet perform as an electronic band and although “Feel The Love” was the track that first drew attention, they’ve also released big tracks like “Not Giving In,” “Spoons,” and “Waiting All Night” in the last year. Their latest, “Baby” features vocals from in demand UK vocalists MNEK (also heard on Duke Dumont’s “Need U (100%)”) and Sinead Harnett (featured on two Disclosure tracks) and strays far away from the foursome’s drum and bass roots into garage and R&B territory.Posted by
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.

Hot Creations co-head Lee Foss takes on Rudimental’s “Waiting All Night” — giving it the poppy deep house touch he’s been championing for the last few months. He takes on the London-based group’s track, looping Ella Eyre’s vocal over a poignant guitar sequence that builds to a transformed mellow groover. The EP releases April 14th with Clean Bandit, Kidnap Kid, Andy C and Skream on the remix package.Posted by
UK quartet Rudimental dropped their RnB inspired house production “Hell Could Freeze” last fall. The soulful track featured vocals from rising rapper Angel Haze, creating a blissful beat with vocal conviction. Now with the first weekend of Ultra Music Festival quickly approaching, Skream is ready to preview his rework of the track. Skream’s rendition of “Hell Could Freeze” throws back to a funkier time with a four-on-the-floor dance rhythm, giving fans another disco-flavored product from the dubstep-pioneering producer.
We got our first real taste of Two Inch Punch –real name Ben Ash– last week when Jessie Ware released her If You’re Never Going to Move EP. The title track, which was previously called “110%” received a rework from the UK-based producer, turning the Julio Bashmore 2-step production into a bubbling downtempo beat. Now Two Inch Punch has returned, giving listeners another remix, this time of the London-based quartet Rudimental.
As part of Black Butter Records’ free download series Spread Love, Two Inch Punch has given Rudimental’s soulful “Spoons” a glitchy rework. The singer/songwriter/producer is known for his R&B infused productions –which he calls ‘Lovestep’– and his rendition of “Spoons” follows suit with its sensual harmonies and shadowy bass drops.
T.I.P’s remix of “Spoons” is followed by reworks from Woz and Baunz, click below the break to listen to the entire remix compilation.
We don’t talk about too many live dance musicians on Dancing Astronaut, but Crazy P is definitely a group not to be forgotten. The five member ensemble first banded together almost twenty years ago and in some shape or form have been creating house-disco records for the modern age ever since. The latest effort with remixes from Huxley and Mark E, out this week on 2020Vision Recordings, is a standout record for 2012.
Rudimental dropped a new track on their Soundcloud page yesterday, and we couldn’t be happier it features Angel Haze. “Hell Could Freeze” is one part RnB soul jam and one part syncopated house track. Angel, alternating between spitting dirty rap lines and sickly sweet tones, also shows her diversity. Think of what would happen if Delilah and Azealia Banks made a baby and you’ll get the swagger of Angel Haze.
Today is Thanksgiving. It’s a time to give thanks for good health, good friends, good family, and, of course, good music. We thought we’d take the time to pay tribute to our favorite parts of dance music culture on this day of thanks, not only for the guys who slave over turntables while we get to party, but for the dance music scene in general and its constantly expanding fanbase. This one’s for the EDM acts that put their heart and soul into it, the clubs that go all out every night of the week, and the people who live and breathe house music. It’s the least we can do.
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.
Takeovers on Diplo‘s Radio 1xtra show are always top quality electronic music, but this recent contribution from our friends over at Black Butter Records including the likes of foursome Rudimental, Kidnap Kid, and the new Gorgon City collab between Foamo and Rack ‘N Ruin, absolutely knocked us out of our seats.
The three guest mixes showcase the best of the three artists’ work to date, some high-powered and glossy remixes, and even some older swagger from The Fugees, Shuggie Otis, and Michael Jackson. We love it, you’ll love it too. Enjoy below and follow along with full tracklist.
