Disclosure And Rudimental Nominated For Mercury Prize



Wow. What a year it has been in the UK for electronic music. After riding high at number one in the album charts with their critically acclaimed album ‘Settle’ and earning rave reviews from their fans for a series of live performances at festivals this summer it seems that south London duo Disclosure can do no wrong at the moment. Having a similarly stellar year are East London four piece Rudimental who have also raided the charts as their album ‘Home’ also reaching the coveted number one position.

Both groups have now ensured that dance music will be more than adequately represented at this years highly respected Mercury Prize with both of their debut albums receiving a nomination for this years prize. Good luck guys!

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
