New material incoming...
George Clinton

George Clinton is, simply, a one off.

From doo wop to outer space, the Detroit musician has led a truly singular life, breaking countless boundaries in the process.

Back in action, Rudimental recently went into the studio with the P-Funk icon. Speaking to Triple J, the Hackney collective explained that the collaboration had been fruitful.

"We actually did two tracks with George Clinton" Kesi Dryden explained. "We went to one of his gigs in London and we got to meet him afterwards, and we sent him a couple tracks and he was really liking it. His management got in touch with us, and he vocalled it, and sent them back. We're going to get back in the studio (soon) to finish it and it will be on album two."

Amir Amor added: "It's the best music we've made, ever. We didn't really make album one, in that sense. We started making music and it was a continuous process until we brought the record out. We're continuously making music, jamming between gigs and onstage, and that's how we work. We write all the time."

Clash was recently granted an audience with George Clinton - and found the Parliament/Funkadelic icon to be on typically outrageous form. Slanderous, libellous and always entertaining, you can find the interview HERE.
