Rudimental

For some it was a fat mayor on a zipwire or that triple-golden Saturday night in the Olympic stadium. But for others, East London’s incredible summer of 2012 began one month earlier when Hackney Weekend was struck by a storm whipped up onstage by four local boys and their band of friends.

Rudimental’s ‘Feel The Love’, had just topped the singles chart, arms were raised, bodies bounced, neck hairs sprang to attention and throats went a little lumpy as thousands of voices sang along on a grey London day on the Marshes.

Not only was this the undisputed feel-good hit of the summer, it was stamped Made In Hackney, home to three-quarters of Rudimental and still their number-one hangout and recording base. The fourth and final part, Amir Amor, came from nearby Somers Town.
