It’s rock, shock and two smoking turntables as the dynamic duo of UK hip-hop MC Rodney P and producer/DJ Skitz touch down in Wellington for one night of surefire, heavy-artillery dancefloor murderation.

These lads are the finest exponents of the London speciality - unfathomably solid hip-hop beats graced with a reggae rub alongside Titan tough rhythms, topped off with menacingly majestic lyrics. They will burn fire and raise the roof on the Sandwiches without a shadow of doubt.

Rodney P – the rhythm killer, has been a leading light in the UK scene since he founded the London Posse in the early 90s. He has subsequently gone on to release records with Dobie on Howie B’s Pussyfoot label, the Nextmen, Blak Twang, Roots Manuva, Bugz In The Attic, MJ Cole (as PD Project) and even Bjork.

When ex-pat dreadhead Freq Nasty required the highest calibre of British firepower he called upon Rodney, the result was the outstanding grimy breaks-hop classic and bFM favourite ‘Come Let Me Know’. Spitting lyrics like it was going out of fashion and commanding the mic by any means necessary Rodney P is the best of British and should not to be missed under any circumstances.

Skitz is currently riding a high with a brand new immaculate mix-CD ‘Homegrown’ picking up props all over not to mention Muzik magazine labeling him as ‘a new British RZA’ for his own productions. With his debut album 2001s ‘Countryman’ hr mixed the styles from a hip-hop base and incorporated contributions from MC Dynamite, Roots Manuva, Prime Cuts, Tony Vegas, Skinnyman, Deckwrecka as well as of course, Mr P. The pair also share the top ranking ‘Original Fever’ radio show on the BBC’s 1Extra with a transatlantic selection of the freshest hip-hop and related hoo-ha (check their playlists at Though he has worked alongside DJ Die and remixed the likes of Pharohe Monchs timeless ‘Simon Says’ and Roni Sizes ‘Dirty Beats’ as well as many (slightly less famous) others Skitz is most at home behind the decks, delivering ‘don’t argue hip-hop’ with a strong scent o

These dapper dons of heavyweight sound will be roaring through town like a car-chase from The Sweeney, miss it at your peril. Book now to avoid disappointment because with Daddy Skitz and the rhythm killer Rodney P inside the house this is sure to be one locked-off roadblock dance!!!
