Bootleg Rascal + Clever Thing + Beach Riot






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 “ ( 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.
