Biography

One of the UK’s most exciting and dynamic vocal talents, there’s little the dexterous Youngman (Simon Smith) hasn’t achieved success in, with a career only just beginning to bloom.

An artist with more strings to his bow than many veteran players in the business, Youngman has blazed fire as a vocalist across the drum’n’bass, R&B and bassline scenes, extended his creative and entrepreneurial skills by designing his own successful clothing range – Peng People – and spearheaded a new education scheme Music & Life Workshops. Life is certainly hectic for this “young man”, but it’s just the way he likes it.

Indeed for Youngman, you’re only confined by your imagination when it comes to artistic endeavors. It’s a mantra instilled in him since a young age and hardly surprising when you consider his father is noneother-

than the legendary drum’n’bass DJ/Producer Simon ‘Bassline’ Smith.

As a singer, Youngman has been flexing his prized pipes since the age of 5, and performing professionally since the age of 16, having turned his back on a promising DJing career to focus on exhibiting his remarkable vocal abilities. No one could argue his decision hasn’t paid dividends.

In 2007, Youngman’s career took a further leap forward when he relocated to London from his hometown of Derby. Juggling a Business Management course at the University of London and an intense production schedule, he cemented his status as a firestarting MC in the drum’n’bass scene with his own self-titled EP on Bryan G’s Chronic Records, along with the king-sized ‘Body Pump’ completed with Drumsound & Bassline Smith. The latter yielded massive industry support and were heavily rotated by Radio 1’s Annie Mac and Zane Lowe.
