Upper Hutt Posse are musical pioneers releasing this country's first rap song "E Tū" in 1988 and touring with impassioned performances that brought notoriety and respect. Their unique fusion of rap and reggae (in both English and Māori languages) is an inspirational injection into the national music scene and a powerful vehicle for revolutionary socio-political perspectives.

The latest album “Declaration Of Resistance” fuses rap, reggae, funk, soul, rock and even a little punk, it follows an electronica dubstep-drumnbass album released a year prior. Not confined to any one style, or to how they create music, new musicians and personalities keep the lineup fluid yet solid, revolving around the central figures Te Kupu, who’s recently transformed to rhythm guitar-vocals and MC Wiya on bass-vocals.

UHP embrace a kaupapa (objective/purpose) of consciousness-raising and are unrelenting in their momentum producing groove driven music with meaningful phraseology.
