Bio

Oozing mutant hip-hop and infectious melodies. Ghetto-Dubsters.

The burrito-slingin’ dub monsters, have released their first full-length album,‘Asleep In The Machine’. The album hones in on their mutant dublactic hip-hop sounds and hooky song-crafting. Working with artist/producer, LyMo in the studio The Rascals have put together something tasty.

Their third latest single is the title track off the album, 'Asleep In The Machine', which was added to Triple J’s rotation list the week of its release.

Staying true to the Rascal flavour, the album features some taco-licking tones that shoot from the hip and bounce off into a galaxy of space gorillaz. It’s an album that will dip you into a Cancun boat party, then shake you into the Sunday morning recovery.

Carlos’ prego sauce-dipped vocals are the salsa in the taco layer. Sitting above Jimmy’s unique intergalactic guitar riffs and synths and Jack’s trip-hop beats and kicks.

Last year, they toured with their brothers in arms, Sticky Fingers, in Europe. Playing to Sellout crowds in France, UK, Holland and Germany. Then wrapped up 2015 with a bang at Festival of the Sun (Port Macquarie), Lost Paradise (Peats Ridge) and The Falls Festival (Byron Bay).

2017 has been a big year for Bootleg touring around Australia headlining gigs throughout February and March. Then headlining more shows over in the USA during June. Their activity has been non stop and they have just returned from a European tour from July - August. There's big things in the works for the boys as they are preparing to release their sophomore album.

Feeling a bit of an 80's electro-soul vibe with this one! Pretty different to your previous upload but it's still groovy and catchy as you would expect from Bootleg. Solid.
