Kid BritishOur House is Dadless

Having just supported The Specials on their heralded reunion tour, Kid British keep up the old school 2 Tone feel with this Madness sampling single of impressive re-invention.

Rap and ska are perfect bedmates, both vital steps in the history of black music, bringing lyrics to the fore, acknowledging that need for a black voice, and all set against simple but addictive rhythms.

And though it’s a white interpretation of ska featured here, it’s still a thrilling, fun 21st century take on rightful classic of the genre, that may not offer anything particularly revolutionary, but could make even Terry Hall smile.

8.1/10

Release Date: 6 Jul
