About The Young Punx
Beyond rave reviews in the press, their cheeky pop culture mentality and freshly energized sound, now known as "Mashpop and punkstep" is the next step in the evolution of mashup music (where they’ve long been pioneers). The Young Punx fuse elements of house, electro, breaks and drum ‘n’ bass with an eclectic soundclash of popular culture references, rock, disco, 80s pop, classical and jazz to create something at once original and resolutely accessible. Alongside Hal and Cameron, the live band includes guitar virtuoso and legend Guthrie Govan (Guitarist of the Year in Guitarist Magazine) and vocals from Tiffany Gore (Medcab / Kraak en Smaak) and Yolanda Quartey (Bugz in the attic / Deekline / Cuban Brothers).
