Youngr - What's Next

Youngr made his name putting together bootlegs, so guess what, it’s bootleg time ladies and gents!

Check out his bootleg hitlist below.

Ramblin

Simply Red is my favourite band ever. I was listening to his Stars Deluxe album on the plane, and it had these amazing acapellas of old blues songs on the end that I’d never heard. Decided to make a bootleg with one of them.

Silence

Always loved this tune. Used to cover it in an old band. Decided to do it with Youngr.

London Grammar – Hey Now

I was super drunk one night on the night tube in London and had a part of this vocal in my head but had NO idea what the words or song was. So I was just singing it to strangers untill someone told me what they thought it might be … Next day I found the stems and made a bootleg.

Gorillaz – Feel Good and Michael Jackson – Billie Jean

Because it’s the greatest beat in pop, and one of the greatest basslines in pop. It was almost too obvious, I had to check if someone had done it before!

Jungle – The Heat

Always liked Jungle‘s vibe. Actually did a remix with an old band I was in that never turned into anything, so revisited the vocal and made a new mix!

Zhu – Faded

Again, dope vocal. Remember the first time I heard it. Instantly wanted to do my own thing with it.

Daft Punk – One More Time

What an amazing message. And the fact it just repeats it’s self so many times. It’s brilliant.

Craig David – Fill Me In

Cause he’s a UK legend! Grew up with his music. And his vocal style suited mine, so it worked really easily for me.

The Temper Trap – Sweet Disposition

I had made a bootleg with a Marvin Gaye sample, and the guitar line I wrote kept reminding me of The Temper Trap song (which I also fucking loved) .. decided last minute to put The Temper Trap vocal over Marvin Gaye and it instantly found its magic.

All Saints – Pure Shores

Pure shores was one of the first CDs I ever bought. Bought it from Woolworths in Manchester and it cost £6.99! I was trying to write a dance song in 3/4 and the chords I was using gave me the same emotion that lure shores did.

Gallant – Bourbon

Gallant

Gallant

Gallant is a rising Los Angeles-based star, who has already found fans in Elton John, ZHU and Sufjan Stevens, and now Indietronica. Not bad for a newcomer.

His latest release, ‘Bourbon’, is a smokey and robust track. It stirs with soulful vocals, all topped up with ice blocks of 80’s-inspired synths.

Recline back. ‘Bourbon’ is the perfect nightcap.

Gallant’s debut album, ‘Ology’ will be out on 4 April.

Sounds like: Alex Vargas, Jack Garratt, TENDER, Wølffe, Lucas Nord, Great Good Fine Ok, LANY
