    something that stripped of all sounds, where the drum and the bass just "roll" thru the tune. Like a tune you could hear for an hour and never get sick of how it rolls thru

    A sick tune that makes your head nod from start to finish.

    id say - A tune that from start to finish rolls... Its easy going, good simple kick n snare, usually the same sounds carry on though out the tune.

    Don't agree with that mate, great tune but i think in my opinion it's to heavy (pardon the pun) to be a roller.

    Back in the day[early to mid 90's: )] a "Roller" referred to the the Break that consisted of Drum rolls linked together & often in conjunction with an Amen over the top but nowadays it seem's to have morphed in tracks like 'The Cleaner' by Hybris etc.
