First rising to prominence in 2012 with the massive hit single “Feel the Love” featuring vocalist John Newman, Rudimental has made its career out of combining breakbeats, glittery electronica, deep funk, and rocking soul music for a rich sound that’s both heartwarming and toe-tapping. This Saturday, August 6, Rudimental will set aside its instruments for a DJ set at Story nightclub. Although it won’t be a live show, it could still prove to be plenty entertaining and — who knows? — maybe they’ll be joined by some sort of guest vocalist. Considering past Rudimental collaborations include Bobby Womack, Ed Sheeran (who appears on their latest record, We the Generation), Ella Eyre, Emeli Sandé, and the small army of singers they take on their normal tours, it’s not outside the realm of possibility.
