about

Out 12th February on Tru Thoughts, “Holes In The Building” sees London Posse man and all-round Godfather of British hip hop Rodney P teaming up with Bristol’s DJ Die, one of UK dance music's most influential figures whose exploits include co-founding Reprazent with Roni Size. Here, the pair combine their talents to forge an attention-grabbing slice of conscious ska- and hip hop-infused pop music; backed up with a great animated video (launching January), this punchy and magnetic track is set to spread far and wide over the party season and into 2016.

Connecting with their common ska and two-tone roots, Rodney P & DJ Die simultaneously turn back the clock while updating the script – although, as they concede, when it comes to the social message of the song and prospects of the kids it calls out to, the script sadly hasn't changed much since the heyday of The Specials, The Selecter, Bad Manners and all the others they used to listen to as young wannabe rude-boys.
