An exclusive mixtape produced for Mixcloud, containing tracks from (and in support of) Chris Read’s recent BBE Records album ‘Colo(u)rs of the World’ in collaboration with Chicago vocalist Pugs Atomz.
“Mixtape maestro and sample head, Chris Read’s beat-making credentials simply cannot be overstated. ‘Colours Of The World’ bridges the gap between traditional boom-bap sonics and future soul, utilizing obscure jazz fragments to create dazzling sonic mosaics; smooth, sumptuous and soulful throughout. Pugs’ dextrous flow switches seamlessly between classic rap styles and more abstract, ‘OutKast-esque’ vocal acrobatics. An unmistakably contemporary LP made in the image of progressive, life-affirming 90s hip hop and containing a unique blend of UK/US influences, ‘Colours Of The World’ is almost as nostalgic as it is original.”
