Album: Rudimental, Home (Asylum)

  • @montyhugh

You can almost discern the smell of wet tarmac coming off these Hackney whizkids' debut, so heady is it with the whiff of an urban summer: a skittering collage of vocal drum'n'bass, garage, and funky house that parties, in the best way, like it's July 1999.

Hands-in-the-air hits like "Feel the Love" are judiciously punctuated with slinkier, subtler jams and even the inevitability of an Emeli Sandé cameo can't spoil the elation.
