Rudimental take us on a tour of London
This article is part of a new series of Music Tour City Guides put together with our partner Miller – there’s more inside info on clubbing in London at the Miller Music Tour’s London Hub.
Live act Rudimental are bringing drum’n’bass back into the charts for the first time in years. They soundtracked the UK summer this year with their debut single Feel The Love, which hit number one in the Top 40, and they showed off their impeccable, high energy carnival-like live show during their recent tour of Australia. They’re heading back to our shores next March with Future Music Festival, but first we caught up with songwriter and producer Piers Agget from the Hackney born-and-bred crew to find out their top tips for their home city.
Where’s the best place to go clubbing?
“Fabric has always been one of our favourites. We’ve been going there since we were 18, watching some of our heroes: Roni Size, EZ, Soul II Soul… Now we’re playing there, hosting our own nights!”
77A Charterhouse St, London EC1M 6HJ
Where do you recommend for a drink?
“Shoreditch and Brick Lane, you’re spoilt for choice there. Loads of quirky little bars. And I’ll always stumble across a new gem.”
How about to eat?
“Meat Mission in Hoxton is always a winner, just a stroll from our studio. We’re there quite a lot. And of course Nandos, ‘nuff said!”

How about to chill out the next day?
“We’ll be at our studio Major Toms, as chilling isn’t really in our vocabulary. So if we are chilling it’ll be at the studio when we have the time…”
How about for shopping?
“You can’t beat the West End! Everything you could want. Amazing clothes stores, and some of the best record shops!”
What about the best place to stay?
“North and East London, we were born and bred there, it’s always going to be home for us. Can’t imagine being anywhere else.”
