Flaunting a visceral, psychedelic blend of alternative hip hop, Young Fathers pole-vaulted into popular consciousness earlier this year, with their debut album Dead, released on Big Dada and Anticon. In this episode of Repercussions, Alloysious, Kayus and G from Young Fathers join Stuart Buchanan to share some of their musical influences past and present, and talk about the reaction to their debut, their recent Mercury Prize nomination and their plans for the future. From South African electro and Ghanan dancehall, to Lee Scratch Perry mixing Bob Marley and Iggy Pop going Nightclubbing, Young Fathers share an upfront selection of wild vocalists and rawkus beats, exclusively on Repercussions.
