Their sound spans many a genre, from Garage to House through to Drum & Bass, all we know is that they call it "UKness" and whatever it is, they do it well! With their brand new single 'Feel The Love' taking the radio waves by storm Rudimental chat to us about the new single, run us through the remixes and tell us a bit more about the process behind the video. Check it out.
You just dropped the video for your new single ‘Feel The Love’, which has had a massive response! Tell us some more about the video and what made you choose Philadelphia? Out of all the pitches for the video we read through, this one was the one that jumped out at us. It connected straight away with us and felt like a no brainer! We were like, 'Rick Ross on horseback? Yes please!'.
You’ve teamed up with vocalist John Newman, how did that relationship come about? (Piers) I met John in the pub! We hit it off straight away. I ended up playing keys in his band and he ended up moving in with my parents. We are all very close and write a lot together. He is an amazing talent.
People are already dubbing ‘Feel The Love’ as this summers festival anthem! – is this a welcomed accolade? Yes! We've all been working hard in music for a couple of years and it feels great to be getting some recognition. Without sounding too cheesy, we are literally living our dream.
You’ve released some remixes to go with the release. Tell us some more about the remix package. We are really happy with the remix package. Something for everyone in it. Cutline have delivered a Dubstep remix which is crazy! Scuba has done a house Remix which is big, it goes off in the club! Chuffed to have Scuba involved, absolutely love that tune Adrelanin he did! Then there is Fred V & Grafix, Dusky and Gorgon City (Foamo & RackNRuin boys new project which is signed to black butter). We have also done a remix of FTL which is I guess more in the vein of Spoons which we released before FTL... It's got all new vocals from John on it, which are defo worth checking out!
Your productions have spanned genres from UK Garage to Drum & Bass but where would you say your sound lies? Soulful UKNess
You’ve got a few remixes under your belt yourself now including the likes of Ed Sheeran. Got any more remix plans you can fill us in on? We've just done a remix for a label we all grew up with called Defected Records which has been an honor! The remix is coming this summer, ready for Ibiza. We hope you like it!
What can we expect from a Rudimental set? Live? DJ? Whats your performance flavour? Come and see us to find out!
Along with a busy DJ schedule ahead of you what does the rest of 2012 have planned for Rudimental? Album plans by any chance? Djing at festivals this summer which is our first time at a lot of places so it's exciting. Outside of that it's about focusing on finishing the album. We've been working with some amazing vocalists. Then we are also launching our live show at the back end of the year, which we can't wait for.
