Fresh from Ibiza, the talented guys from Rudimental were met with a rave like atmosphere at Newmarket Nights last night.

The boys from East London brought their trumpet and a whole load of energy to their DJ Set, which included a mixture of drum and bass classics amongst some of their own hits.

Rudimental, who were looking relaxed in beach shorts, smiled throughout their set as they cheekily told the Newmarket crowd they were "ready to break some rules".

Before they took to the stage, I was wondering how a DJ set would go down at 9pm on a Friday evening in sleepy Suffolk - but I needn't have worried.

Encouraging the hot and sweaty crowd to climb on each other's shoulders, the enigmatic band had both young and slightly older (me) jumping up and down to their songs Not Giving in and Feel the Love.
