RUDIMENTAL REVEALED AS THE CREATIVE FORCE BEHIND UNDERGROUND IBIZA CLUB HIT ‘HEALING’
WHITE LABEL TRACK TO GET FULL RELEASE
ON MAJOR TOMS RECORDS
BRIT Award-winning collective Rudimental have been revealed as the creative force behind the huge underground club hit ‘Healing’.
Originally white labelled, then listed as fictional artist Major Tom,
(after the band’s Hackney studio and new record label), Annie Mac
revealed the true origins of the track on her Radio 1 show, commenting “this is so perfect for Café Mambo at sunset; it couldn’t be more perfect”.
Dedicated fans of the band may have spotted the tell-tale signs
before now; the house-infused track is layered with Rudimental’s
signature horns and an addictive baseline, reminiscent of their previous
releases, Baby and Rumour Mill. With vocals from Roc Nation’s rising star, J Angel, ‘Healing’
has fast become the soundtrack to clubs around the world this summer,
particularly the home of dance music, Ibiza, with DJs including Calvin
Harris, Groove Armada, Roger Sanchez, Crookers, Oliver Heldens, Todd
Terry all dropping the track in their sets.
Rudimental embarked on their first ever headline world tour earlier
this year, which saw them play live to as many as 80,000 people a night
across Australia, America and Europe, including a sold out show at
London’s O2 Arena. They have since spent the summer working on new
material and taking the Rudimental party global, DJing and performing
live in clubs and festivals around the world, as well as a residency at
Amnesia Ibiza. The band finish the summer with a headline slot at the
infamous London South West Four Festival on 27th August.
Rudimental’s second No.1 studio album, WE THE GENERATION,
was released last year to rave reviews and poignantly included the very
last vocal recordings from the late, great Bobby Womack. WE THE GENERATION followed the band’s debut album Home, also released to critical acclaim back in 2013, earning them a Mercury Prize nomination and a BRIT Award.
Healing will release on Major Toms on 26th August on all DSPs.
