Rudimental feat. John Newman - Feel The Love

This is destined to be a HUGE tune over the summer months.  Feel The Love is the latest track from East London production elective Rudimental, following their recent remix of Ed Sheeran's Drunk.  With material like this, the fight to topple Chase & Status as the kings of drum and bass / dubstep is becoming an increasingly bloody battle.

It's not all whomping basslines and heavy beats though.  The production is tinged with reggae, from the organ to the brass inflections (and trumpet solo) and the almost swing feel of the percussive rhythms towards the end.  John Newman's powerful vocal stands up to the frenetic production and compliments the reggae influences.  Altogether, Feel The Love is a track that's drum and bass with a twist.  And when the beat drops?  Awesome stuff.


Listen: Feel The Love is released on 28th May.
