[TMN PREMIERE] Rudimental – Rumour Mill (Midas Hutch Remix)

Rumour Mill (Midas Hutch Remix)

In 2013, Rudimental shook up the electronic music scene with their debut album, Home, a unique fusion of drum and bass with elements of house, R&B, hip-hop and alternative. Following the critical and commercial success of that project, the UK four-piece band hit the road bringing their impressive, mind-blowing fully live sets to festivals and headlining shows around the world. Rudimental’s highly-anticipated sophomore effort is only a few months away and, as they’ve been rolling out singles, it’s shaping up to be the perfect continuation, yet evolution, of Home.

Last month they dropped of the single “Rumour Mill,” which trades in the drum and bass backdrop for a more atmospheric, laid-back vibe with some silky vocals from two up ‘n coming stars out of the UK, Will Heard and Anne-Marie. Fitting that chilled-out sound, the single carries a carefree message that, as its name suggests, imparts the age-old wisdom of phasing out negativity and being yourself.

Today, we’ve got the premiere of an official remix of that airy tune courtesy of Dutch producer and TMN-favorite Midas Hutch, who’s also known as FS Green. Rudimental couldn’t have commissioned a better artist to take on such an easygoing jam as Hutch applies his signature 80’s-tinted, nu-disco style making the track his own. With funky backing synths, engrossing percussion and an occasional clean horn-section, Hutch cultivates sonics that mirror the message of the song all the while completely re-imagining the listening experience. Groove to this summer-ready anthem above.

Make sure to also check out Rudimental’s most recent single “Love Ain’t Just a Word,” which dropped last week. Rudimental’s We the Generation is out on September 18th on Major Toms/Big Beat Records.

Try Me (Midas Hutch Remix)

Whether you’re heading to work or school, Monday mornings can be tough to get through. For us, music has always been the key to jump starting the week and combatting the mundanity that every day life can present. With that in mind, we’re excited to be premiering a brand new tune from producer Midas Hutch, aka FS Green, that promises to get you dancing regardless of your current state of mind. Taking on Detroit emcee Dej Loaf‘s radio hit, “Try Me,” Midas Hutch injects a retro-inspired electro funk. The Dutch producer, whose name you may recognize from his work with Major Lazer, employs a soulful disco backdrop through out adding a vocoder effect on Loaf’s vocals for an addicting chorus. Dej Loaf’s verses float over the old-school backdrop making for a listening experience that is both chill and downright groovy. Hit play above and get down with the get down. Grab a free download, which includes his full remix pack, here.

UPDATE: The original version of this was taken down from Soundcloud by Columbia Records but you can still enjoy the instrumental version above, which is equally awesome.
