DJBoothTV recently sat down with Rudimental, the English drum and bass band who have previously collaborated with some of your favorite hip-hop artists (Childish Gambino, Nas, Wale, etc.). The four-piece band is busy gearing up for the October 2 release of their second studio album, We the Generation, and in case you weren't already aware, they are also currently making some of the best videos in music. Seriously. The best. 

The very good-natured group caught us up on the making of the Foy Vance-featured "Never Let You Go," released earlier this summer as the second single off of the forthcoming album and BBC Radio 1 DJ Annie Mac's Hottest Record in the World upon its premiere. Away from their London studio while touring with singer/songwriter wunderkind Ed Sheeran, the band was forced to create and record on the road, and they told us their home on wheels in addition to how their latest hit came about.

Make sure you check out the music video as well. Directed by Nez and shot in the UK, Morocco, Ukraine, and Los Angeles, the visuals are epic, full of color and perfectly illustrate the record's message of tolerance and unity. We mentioned that they're making some of the best videos in music, right? Right. 

Rudimental's next single, "I Will for Love," is scheduled for release on September 11 and features Will Heard.
