Ghetto-Dubsters, Bootleg Rascal, from Sydney and Gold Coast are masters of hip-hop infused jams and sonic brews: blending infectious alternative rhythms with “Exquisitely raspy vocals “ (theMusic.com May 2015).
The reprobates that make up Bootleg Rascal, as dodgy as the name suggests, include Carlos, Jimmy, and Jack.
The band have been touring since they formed in mid-2013 when the group of misfits first met in the back room of a seedy Sydney gig. Bonding over their love of music and tacos and spreading/sharing tales of childish escapades (still to this day). Soon after, they hit the garage and crafted together their first ep of original material and toured – up and down the east coast - their first gig was playing Woodford Folk Festival in 2013/14.
Their dubalicious single ‘Oh I Know’ went straight onto Triple J on high rotation and picked up play on community radio stations including: 4ZZZ, PBS and 2SER. Their hooky disco beats, sick riffs and Carlos’s sexy vocals, you’ll be singing the tunes hours after you’ve had a whiff of ‘em, and what’s more, you’ll have forgotten where you’ve picked it up from – kinda suits them to a tee.
