They say that you should never judge a book by its cover.  There are times that you have to beg to differ.  This just happens to be one of those instances.  When I was asked whether I’d like to cover the group ‘Rudimental‘, I initially had no idea who they were, and the impression I always have of drum and bass is of djs on mixing desks spewing out audio cacophony.  That said, it would be a new kind of gig that I would see so I  decided to check it out.  Am I glad I did. To be honest, anything I write here will not give the gig justice, so I recommend you ‘Youtube’ one of their acts, and you’ll get the gist. And do you know what: despite the constant strobbing of blue lights; a very narrow photo-pit that limited movement; all the musicians and performers spread out, this just happened to be one of the very rare gigs that happened to cancel out any challenges that I had to face as a photographer.  They were that good!
