We’re mighty pleased to be bringing you the new EP from Rude Audio, one of our favourite South London collective.

They’ve been lying relatively low since the release of their debut full length, the wonderfully eclectic That Dirty Echo in 2011, bar remix release Dirty Remixes at the end of 2012.

The Ruder EP sees them returning to fine form, still dedicatedly committed to treading the line between dubby bounce and housey thrust. The addition of Eucalypta LV on vocals makes for an interesting step forward, vilifying the frustrating decision-making process of the music industry on ‘Knockemdead’ and supplying a rapid-fire lyrical embellishment to the Lamis remix of 'Fin On A Hill', taken from the Dirty Remixes release, in the form of 'LV On A Hill'.

Elsewhere 'Crystal Palace' sees Rude Audio delightfully indulging their dub sensibilities, with a tinkling piano line lifting the mix from the swampy throb of bassline, while 'Chamlette Honey' is a much darker, steppa-infused effort that unexpectedly bursts into something spry and nimble about half way through. It might only be four tracks, but it’s truly great to see Rude Audio ready to return to the fray.

Don’t take our word for it though, listen to the release yourself with the stream below, and the EP will be available for purchase on 28 April.
