Rudimental Want To Collaborate With Beyonce (For All The Wrong Reasons) & Lauryn Hill: Interview

Robbie Daw | September 6, 2013 7:10 am

British act Rudimental hit up our studio last week and talked about their debut album Home as well as their recent recording session with Ellie Goulding, Ed Sheeran and The Game (that’s right — one session, three artists). But we were also interested in finding out who the drum and bass/dance-pop quartet would love to collaborate with in the future. The first name that popped out of DJ Locksmith‘s mouth: Queen B.

“I would collaborate with Beyonce for so many of the wrong reasons,” Locksmith joked…or at least we think the randy “Feel The Love” hit-maker was joking. The rest of the guys cracked up for several moments, but they eventually noted that Lauryn Hill and D’Angelo are names they wouldn’t mind aligning themselves with.

“Lauryn Hill was a big influence on us. We love The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill,” Amir Amor said. “We love hip hop music.”

Piers Agget added, “We were talking about D’Angelo the other day and how wicked [he was] and how he’s kind of gone missing for awhile. We want him to bring out some more music.”

Check out part of our interview with Rudimental in the video clip above, and let us know what you think about Locksmith’s naughty comment about Beyonce below.
