Bootleg Rascal are a Sydney-based band comprising of long-time collaborators and friends Carlos Lara and Jimmy Young. The group combine an eclectic mix of hip hop, reggae, indie-rock, dub and electronica; all while simultaneously delivering a cohesive sound they make their own.
Since their mid-2013 inception, Bootleg Rascal have released a slew of singles, an EP and two albums, all of which were warmly received globally by critics and fans alike, receiving support from Spotify, Apple Music, MTV, Rage, The Line of Best Fit (UK), Clash Magazine (UK) and added to high rotation on triple j.
In 2019 - 2020, the band will aim to undergo a period of exploration, as they transition into the new era of Booty. What won’t change is the light-hearted fun approach they’ve always had – it’s just time to turn up the party another notch, really.
Bootleg Rascal also enjoy tacos, tequila shots and watching re-runs of Fresh Prince of Bel Air.
