Rudimental on the Making of Their Huge Hit "Never Let You Go" (Video Interview)

We sit down with the U.K. band to talk about their groundbreaking style and writing hit songs on a tour bus.

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.
