Born Simon Smith and hailing from Derby, Youngman has been described by the Guardian as “… the male Katy B” and “the saviour of pop music” by BBC Radio 1 DJ Annie Mac. With his mix of smooth vocals over dubstep beats, he has also drawn some comparisons to one Craig David.
Signed to the Digital Soundboy label, his first single ‘Who Knows?‘ is produced by dubstep royalty Skream, and has already received early radio support from BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra.
Who Knows? is released on January 30.
