Marlon Roudette performs ‘When The Beat Drops Out’ with an actual steel band

We are absolutely hooked on Marlon Roudette’s debut single ‘When The Beat Drops Out’ at the moment and just had to share this live performance with you.

Marlon – who is only the second person to be signed to Simon Cowell’s label Syco not be on ‘The X Factor’ or ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ – has teamed up with the Mangrove Steel Band to perform this exclusive version of the track.

‘When The Beat Drops Out’ is released in the UK on March 1 but has already been a European smash single, reaching number one in Germany and climbing to number 27 on the worldwide Shazam chart.

The track, which has already received over 10 million streams online, is currently playlisted on Capital FM, Capital Xtra, Kiss and Radio 1 and is number 12 on the Shazam Future Hits chart. Impressive, eh?

This beautiful live version of the the track highlights Marlon’s love for the signature sounds of the steel drums. Watch it below:
