It’s been a while since we’ve had a nice head-banging session at live acts from the Drum and Bass genre here in India. The last time we got to witness exclusive performances from this genre was at the sun-kissed shores of Candolim Beach,Goa during Vh1 Supersonic. And this time around it’s Vh1 Supersonic at it again! Just recently, Vh1 Supersonic Club Nights announced news of the upcoming Rudimental Tour on their Facebook page.
This will be Rudimental’s second tour to India, having toured here earlier this March with the Indie/Alt Rock band Alt-J, only to have their Delhi leg washed out due to rain.
Yo Delhi Gutted we not allowed to play today because of the weather. We will be back soon!

For those who’re new to the scene, Rudimental is a Drum and Bass band formed by Piers Aggett, Kesi Dryden, Amir Amor and Leon Rolle. Formed in 2011, they achieved early success when their soul-meets-bass hit “Feel The Love” topped many charts worldwide. In it’s infancy, Rudimental was more of a Garage based band, inspired by the underground scenes in U.K. They’ve now started to incorporated various genres in their tracks of late, most notably the RnB/Soul voice of Emeli Sandé in their 2013 album ‘Home’ ,which also was heavy on Dubstep. Initially signed to the label “Black Butter“, they were roped in by Universal Records too off the back of their very first few singles. That’s enough info for now 😛
The 2-Day Rudimental India tour kicks off on the 19th of June at Kitty Su, Mumbai and on the 20th of June: Kitty Su, Delhi
