Rizzle Kicks second official single from their debut album “Stereo typical” entitled ”When I was a youngster” was released in 2011 on Island Records. “When I was a youngster” peaked at number 8 in the UK Singles charts and is based around a sample of a track called “Revolution rock” recorded by British Punk Rock group “The Clash“. Rizzle Kicks are a British Hip Hop duo from the city of Brighton who met at performance and drama workshops organised by a charity called Audio Active. Although both members of the group (Jordan “Rizzle” Stephens & Harley “Sylvester” Alexander-Sule) were born during hip hop’s golden era (1988-1992) they have been inspired by that period of classic hip hop and have produced several tracks based around sampling.
