Serpent was released by Hip Hop Rap artist D Pugh to treat Urban music fans to the ultimate sound of summer. The track has somewhat of a slow progression, yet when the beat drops, the extended build up was indisputably worth the perseverance. D Pugh switches from an almost spoken word performance before laying down some tantalisingly rhythmic bars.
Producer Jeremy Thomas styled the track with a perfect amount of resonance over the trickling trap beat for the ultimate sound of summer. With beats this strong, it’s almost a crime that D Pugh has been quiet on the new releases front, the Oklahoma based artist has a soulful style, with evocative lyrics which he uses to pour sentimentality into an otherwise hyped up beat. His individualistic edge is a refreshing change from the monotony that you usually find within the Hip Hop genre. The infusion of jazz instrumentals brings D Pugh into a stylish league of his own.
