Rudimental risked their careers to release 'Waiting All Night'.

The dance group have revealed they put their "careers on the line" to push for the song to be released after opposition from record bosses, but are happy the risk paid off after the track was named Best British Single at the BRITs last night (19.02.13).

Speaking at the ceremony, band member DJ Locksmith said: "Everyone was kind of against us putting it out there and all four of us came together and we put our careers on the line with 'Waiting All Night'. It got us through to where we are now, that's why it's such a special track for us."

Meanwhile, the electronic quartet - which also consists of producers Piers Agget, Kesi Dryden, Amir Amor - praised singer Ella Eyre, whose vocals featured on the song, and revealed the track was completed in a hotel room in Scotland whilst supporting Plan B on tour two years ago.

Piers explained: "This song, we actually finished it in a Glasgow hotel room on the Plan B tour. It's got elements of our live shows, it's a big special track for us, it came just before our album came out, it fuelled the hype, Ella did a great vocal performance on it. It came at a time when we really worked hard on tour."
