Rudimental don't get recognised when they go into the crowd after their own gigs.

The 'Not Giving In' hitmakers - made up of Amir Amor, Piers Agget, Kesi Dryden and DJ Locksmith - are delighted they are becoming more popular in the UK and the US but are surprised some of their fans still don't know who they are.

Amir said: ''It's great now that people know more about Rudimental and are starting to understand that we're eclectic, a live act, not just drum and bass.

''We sell more records than most artists, do huge gigs and go into the crowd afterwards, and no one in the crowd recognises us unless they are fans who have done their research.''

The London four-piece have tasted success in the UK with their chart-topping debut studio album 'Home', and they are anticipating a similar reaction in the US but insist this is only the start of their global domination.

He added to the Daily Mirror newspaper: ''It feels like the way it felt in the UK just before 'Feel the Love' came out.

''It's a bit like a volcano building up, people driving from miles away to come see us. It's been an amazing reaction, way different to last time here when there was a lot of British people.

''This time it was all Americans, really hyped. It seems like in the last few months the UK scene has become really big on the US underground and it's about to burst open.

''The album has really solidified us, but it still feels like we are just scratching the surface.

''We've just started getting creative with each other as musicians. There's a lot more come.''
