*(DJ + Vocalist + Trumpet)
Yes, we can’t quite believe it ourselves - Rudimental at Splore! We hope our neighbours within a 30 kilometre radius of Tapapakanga like drum n bass!
The London-based electronic outfit sprung into life in 2009 but really came to prominence with their Number One hit Feel the Love in 2012. This was followed by Rudimental’s Mercury Prize nominated debut album Home. The album's mix of dubstep, R&B, house, and drum'n'bass went straight into the number one spot on the U.K. album chart. Hit singles from the album continued into 2014, including the U.K. number one Waiting All Night, which won a BRIT Award for Best British Single.
Rudimental scored another big hit in 2015 with the Ed Sheeran collaboration Bloodstream, and geared up for the release of their second full-length, We the Generation which included collaborations with Dizzee Rascal, Anne-Marie, MNEK, Lianne de Havas and Bobby Womack. s The second Sheeran feature on the album, Lay It All on Me, became the duo's first U.S.-charting song and their eighth U.K. Top 40 track. The song also went platinum in Australia, Denmark, Italy, New Zealand, and the U.K. In 2017, Rudimental recruited James Arthur for the single Sun Comes Up. The following year saw the act teamed up with Major Lazer, Anne-Marie and Mr Eazifor for the dancehall-inspired single Let Me Love.
Rudimental’s much anticipated third album is due out late October 2018 but massive singles like this year’s Number 1 UK hit “These Days” have kept Rudimental very much in the spotlight.
Their Splore 2019 set will feature a dj, trumpet player and vocalist.
