BBE release Chris Read & Pugs Atomz full LP Colo(u)rs of the World

We are offering five lucky readers the chance to win a digital copy of the album, as well as the "Baby Don't Go/You" single on 7-inch




Earlier this month, the legendary U.K. label BBE (Barely Breaking Even) released the long-awaited full-length LP collaboration of London producer and DJ Chris Read and Chicago rapper/vocalist Pugs Atomz: Colo(u)rs of the World. We are big fans of the album and agree with BBE’s summation below:

Colo(u)rs 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 U.K./U.S. influences, Colo(u)rs of the World is almost as nostalgic as it is original.

We have teamed up with BBE to offer FIVE lucky readers each a prize of the full digital album and the “Baby Don’t Go” b/w “You” single on 7-inch vinyl. Please email us at contest[at]waxpoetics[dot]com with the subject line COLO(U)RS OF THE WORLD CONTEST.
