Best Modern Soul Revue: Rudimental
A lot goes on within the sound of Rudimental: R&B, hip-hop, modern EDM and vintage jungle techno. But the most interesting tradition this British act has embraced goes back generations to the classic soul revue, and no band at Coachella had a deeper bench of talent. They recruit multiple singers and soloists, each of them ready to join in ecstatic choreography in the middle of "Baby." During "Not Giving In," the band jumped from inspirational hooks to excited dance beats and back again, sending a packed Mojave tent's grassy dance floor bouncing. It could have gone all night.
