Who said Mondays are boring? Well, if that was the case it sure isn’t anymore, because on this coming Monday the British band Rudimental will be playing at Makronissos beach in Ayia Napa as part of the 2015 Beach Cult.
The band is made up of Piers Agget, Amir Amor, Kesi Dryden and DJ Locksmith or, as he is known off-stage, Leon Rolle. The quartet was nominated for a Mercy Prize in 2013, a prize given for the best album from the UK and Ireland, and won several awards including the Brit Award and the Mobo Award (an award for music of black origin) in the category of Best Album for their album Home, which debuted at number one in the UK albums chart. The band has achieved multiple platinum record sales in a number of countries, including the UK and Australia.
Rudimental’s first single Feel the Love, featuring singer John Newman, who was part of the Beach Cult events last Monday, was released in 2012. The single topped the UK Singles Chart and gave them their BRIT award nomination. Restlessly releasing single after single, the band has given the airwaves a string of songs on which a number of equally talented singers have featured. One such single is Not Giving In featuring Newman and Alex Clare, the UK number one smash hit Waiting All Night featuring Ella Eyre, Right Here featuring the singer/ songwriter Foxes, Free featuring Emeli Sande and Powerless featuring Becky Hill.
The band is known for putting on some energetic performances so put on some comfortable shoes and grab your beach towel, things could get serious.
Live performance from the band. July 13. Makronissos Beach, Ayia Napa. 7pm. Tel: 99-888327
