Rudimental are a London production elective who can’t seem to put a foot wrong at the moment. They remixed Ed Sheeran’s single ‘Drunk’ a little while ago, and did it so well their remix has received support from Zane Lowe, Pete Tong and 1xtra. Now they’re back with an absolute house banger called ‘Spoons’.
The track features the incredible vocals of the uber talented MNEK, an 18 year old singer/ songwriter and producer from Lewisham, and of course the extremely gifted Syron, a 19 year old singer also from South London. Despite their youth these artists have been putting in work for a long time and have truly mastered their crafts. Both artists have been hotly tipped as ones to watch in 2012, with bloggers going crazy for them and all the taste makers getting into a frenzy some people probably wonder what the hype about these two is, but this track should wipe away any doubts.
Syron’s husky voice fits perfectly will with the smooth soulful sound of MNEK as they sing their hearts on this chilled jam. The beat has a funky house element to it though the reverb effect on the vocal which runs through the song gives the track a lofty and airy feel.
Being a house track it is of course repetitive but Rudimental have accomplished a true feat in the sense that it never gets old. Using two vocalists means the repeated lyrics seem some how different, the harmonies also help to add new elements, and when the track finishes you’re left wanting more.
‘Spoons’ has already received so much love from the likes of The XX , Mista Jam and Disclosure, to name but a few and I’m sure in years to come it will be counted as a house classic!
