The second single taken from their debut album 'Colours Of The World', UK producer Chris Read & Chicago rapper Pugs Atomz present one of the album's unquestionable highlights, languid hip hop anthem 'Drum Roll'.

Second original track 'Nice and Easy' provides a blunted party groove whilst showcasing the complex, polyrhythmic rhyme skills of Pugs Atoms at his very best.
