Upper Hutt Posse are musical pioneers unrelenting in their momentum producing groove driven music with meaningful phraseology.

"UHP released New Zealand's first rap record with the 12-inch hip-hop E Tū. They are firmly bedded with an urban palette of hip-hop, reggae, rap and te reo and have been long-recognised for their lyrical polemic against injustice and inequality" - Colin Williams, Upper Hutt Leader.

The new album “Declaration Of Resistance” is a rap, reggae, funk, soul fusion.

Current lineup includes additional musicians and vocalists coalescing around the two central figures - Te Kupu who's recently transformed to rhythm guitar/vocals and MC Wiya on bass/vocals.

"There are times when the band sound is huge, transcending all notion of genre, moving through Hiphop and Reggae, blasting out Kiwi-flavoured world music." - Simon Sweetman, The Dominion Post
