Rudimental - Rudimental Collaborating With Funk Icon George Clinton

British dance stars Rudimental have landed their dream collaboration after hitting the studio with funk legend George Clinton.

The Waiting All Night hitmakers' songwriter Kesi Dryden reveals they are trying to recreate the vibe of the soulful dance hits of the 1960s and 1970s for their upcoming second album and they have received a little help from Clinton and U.S. jazz rockers Steely Dan.

Dryden tells the Bbc, "One of our dreams came true recently. We managed to do two songs with George Clinton from Parliament Funkadelic. We worked with Steely Dan, as well. These are really big influences on us."

He adds, "We want to bring it back to what James Brown and Parliament were doing back in the day. It was dance music, but it was live.

"We're really digging deep in that side of things and trying to bring back that energy to the stage."

Rudimental are hoping to release the follow-up to 2013's Home by the end of the year (14).
