Bio

Oozing mutant hip-hop and infectious melodies, Bootleg Rascal are
Coming Home.

Seeping through windows, breaking down the back door, and walking over cut glass to get there, the new Bootleg single Coming Home embeds itself, manipulating into the cult of the Bootleg-ery.

Following up on their hectic dub-galactic single 'Oh I Know', Coming Home features the top work of vocalist Carlos “Q Dome” to date. A helicopter landing on a Mos Def track over the top of a sweet groove that shades the lines of dub and Hip-Hop even further. The band have found a sweet spot in their mixed music styles, blending dub, hip-hop with Brit sensibilities and producing their unique “fish boning danceability” (reviewstalker.com April 15).

Their run of gigs just gone were sell outs as the band continues to finesse their mutant hip-hop and infectious ghetto-dub rep.

ALBUM in September.
That's right... it's coming in September 2015 – the debut B- Raz album is happening in the first week of September out through Sureshaker and MGM.

In their recent January and February down time, B-Raz have been in studio mode, writing, recording, and catapulting ideas to the wall and seeing which of them are gooey enough to stick. Some times, that itself becomes part of the process… or the whole process. The excess drippings are then isolated and dropped onto a track to add a punch of flavour and aroma that's identifiably Bootleg Rascal.

Here's where you can catch them live and enjoying sangrias and tacos next:
JUL 4 | PIGSTY IN JULY | CENTRAL COAST, NSW

Chuffed to see you guys continually building as a band. It goes without saying that this is the best you've done so far.

Sounds like their buddies Sticky Fingers have been influencing the Rascals. This one's got a mad groove to it.

Super funky and a real catchy tune. Effortlessly laid back.
