You may remember miss Becky Hill from the Voice UK and her collaberation on Rudimental's banger "Powerless". Returning with a new image and heaps of attitude, Becky has teamed up with Little Simz for electronic-pop jam "Back To My Love".

These ladies (surprisingly) sound incredible together. Becky's soaring, husky vocals teamed with Simz laid-back yet insightful verse makes for a solid pop single.

Produced by Noah Breakfast (TY Dolla $ign, Ellie Goulding) we have a feeling "Back To My Love" will be blowing up radio stations in no time, and bound to be a summer anthem.

Listen below:

Words: Corrie Parris

Brooklyn-based duo The Golden Pony are the latest pair to take on Rudimental's single "Common Emotion" featuring Grammy-nominated singer, songwriter, record producer MNEK out now via Big Beat Records. Turning the record into a dance floor anthem packed with subtle sonic shifts and an effortlessly huge chorus thanks to MNEK's powerful vocals. The guys remark, "Were huge fans of Rudimental! Especially live, they are able to effortlessly blend instrumentation with electronic vibes.  We believe their music straddles a current and classic vibe at the same time, giving it a ton of crossover appeal.  With that in mind for the remix, we decided to use hard hitting pianos reminiscent of the 90's New York House with some modern pitched vocals and Future Bass sounds."

The Common Emotion remix EP comes out ahead of Rudimental’s tour alongside Gorgon City, which will hit five US cities throughout May 2016 and with tickets available HERE.

Taken from their no.1 selling album We The Generation, Rudimental release a video for their collaboration with none other than Ed Sheeran. The black and white artistic piece features a series of rooms, each with its own inhabitants and scenarios, telling its own part of the story. It's the first time the boys have been in a video together, where they take us on a journey of what it took them to get to where they are, as they're joined by younger versions of themselves. It's a visual that marks the band's progression whilst exposing a somewhat vulnerable side. Watch the video above and check out below what the boys had to say about it, as well as their upcoming dates.

This video is a snapshot of our individual journeys through life. It’s about creative expression, and how important love, friendship and family are to us. It was great to work with Ed in our first video appearance.”

So we just so happened to see Rudimental in New Zealand, which was a major win after missing them in our own London Town.

The Hackney derived quartet bring Hackney around the world with them, taking the famous Dalston mural that they used for the cover of their hit-filled album 'Home', wherever they go. With a backdrop indicating that Hackney is home, and Hackney is where they have come from, it was hard not to swell with pride watching the four boys doing their thing on the other side of the world.

Rudimental make you feel like they are your friends. Instantly. From the moment Locksmith runs out topless, you know the party is about to start, and you can't deny that he's one of the best hypemen around. However, the four Rudimental boys are so much more when they perform live. They are a family, with a whole host of family members; backing singers, brass section, drummer, etc.

The beautiful Anne Marie sings backing vocals effortlessly, dressing and looking like a model, and flying the flag for girl power with another female singer, in an otherwise male dominated stage.

Energy - the name of the game. The set is nothing but bountiful energy, with an overwhelmingly huge disco ball lighting up the whole stadium. We were sparkling with fun and happiness as the light shone upon us.

The Rudimental boys are nothing but humble. Piers especially has grown from a very shy individual into someone you can visibly see has a passion for music which completes him; his very being. Locksmith took the time to big up every musician, including Camden Town's very own Mark Crown (Trumpet) and showcasing their talent individual. Rudimental exist as  a whole,  whilst also ensuring they maintain an outline of the core Rudi4.

Covers on the night included DJ MARKY & XRS - LK feat. Stamina MC, as well as a fun rendition of King Curtis - Mephis Soul Stew.

We basically had a ball - a massive sparkling Hackney tinged disco BALL.

Thanks Rudi fam.  We can feel the love.
