Rudimental, MNEK & Sinead Harnett Say, Hey Baby!

Thursday, April 25, 2013


UK collective Rudimental's debut album, Home (arriving April 29th in the UK) is shaping up to being total best friends with me, as it boasts a tight roster of guest spots such as Emeli Sande and Alex Clare, and my current favorite, MNEK, as well as features classy aural capers like buzzy singles "Waiting All Night", "Spoons" and "Feel The Love". Another slice of House-Garage escapism has debuted, and it's the MNEK and newcomer, Sinead Harnett guest spot, "Baby". Proof that a black and white visual can be colorful as the two of them strike multiple poses among inflatable balloons, seeming completely euphoric and lost in the music. Still what is painting on the color is MNEK and Harnett's voices, which are perfectly cast for this type of music craft.

MNEK continues to remind me of a suave New Jack crooner, a Johnny Gill or an Alexander O'Neal. While it seems the male falsetto dominates Pop and Soul respectively, I love a good rich deep he-man voice. Especially one over pounding House beats. Rowr.

  1. When I saw the Rudimental(Not Giving In) video that they filmed in the Phillipine ghettos, I was blown away. Easily one of the best videos I have seen in a long time. Spread the Rudimental love.
