Rudimental week: Moodboard

As their album title Home would suggest, Hackney boys Rudimental are proud of their roots. Piers Agget informs us the word denotes more than just a physical dwelling-place for the band however, sharing with PlanetNotion the various sights and sounds that have inspired their work.

 

Hackney Mural

It represents peace, music, community and a festival vibe. It’s nostalgic for us too, as we grew up near it.

Notting Hill Carnival

Its infectious energy, sound systems and fusion of music. It’s London coming together.

Lauryn Hill - The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill

This was the album that taught us about what makes a historic record. Such a big part of our teenage years.
