Young Fathers comprise Ally, Kayus and G, three twenty-year-olds from Edinburgh. They came together five years ago after meeting at an under-18s hip-hop club night. Their first recordings were made in a bedroom cupboard using a plastic microphone from Argos, 10 pound music software and a karaoke machine.

Initially, the group bonded through their love of hip-hop and clubs, along with a drive to fuse other elements into their music. They share a common approach of going against the grain and live by a 'never take yourself too seriously' mantra.

BBC Introducing took Young Fathers with them to the Sonar 09 festival in Barcelona, to play alongside La Roux and Bass Clef. They put on such a good show that they'll be back on the BBC Introducing stage at T in the Park.
