Kieren Dickins aka DELS comes blasting back out of the blocks with the massive “Capsize”.
Joe Goddard (Hot Chip) has hooked up a beat of such electronic magnitude it sounds like Godzilla marching on Westminster. Over it he drops a chorus of deadpan eloquence which acts as the jump off point for DELS and his labelmate Roots Manuva to rip through verses of such venomous intelligence that if anyone ever again says to you that “rappers haven’t got anything to say” you can just grap this CD and slap them round the chops with it. We promise to stand outside court with placards at your trial for common assault.
A genuine monster of a tune, as packed with a celebratory spirit of solidarity as it is with anger and defiance, this is a truly important and memorable single from a truly important and memorable album.
