Klaus Layer - Lost Track Colored Vinyl Edition
Klaus Layer
Lost Track Colored Vinyl Edition
LP | 2018 | US | Original (Redefinition)
25,99 €*
Release:2018 / US – Original
Genre:Hip Hop
Strictly limited vinyl edition exclusively available at Redefinition Records and HHV!Berlin's boom bap specialist returns with an all-new album designed to shake up global soundwaves. Following up his experimental instrumental concept-album, "Society Collapse" and his "Abstractions" EP with rapper K.A.A.N. (Aftermath Entertainment), Klaus Layer's latest effort is his sixth album on Redef, but his first solo project to feature all vocals over his acclaimed productions.Entitled Lost Track, Klaus assembled an international team of top notch MCs to grace his legendary sounds. Amazingly, the album features the Artifacts, Hex One, Simple One and most prominently Blu (Blu & Exile) on no less than four of the albums nine tracks. Musically it wouldn't be complete without scratches so long time collaborators Educut & Mr Nylson showed up to lace the producer previously known as Captain Crook with razor sharp cuts. Since his 2013 debut, he's built a strong reputation and loyal fanbase by doing one thing over and over: releasing great records. Lost Track is a pure rap album, and while it may be slightly less experimental than Klaus' recent output, it has a sound unlike anyone else in the genre and is deserving of any accolades headed its way. Rumor has it that KL has already completed another album ready to drop later his year. There's no doubt that Klaus is a true original with a passion for his craft that ensures that his supporters will always have something unique to explore. Conceptually, his latest record is a bit of a hybrid as it contains a mix of previously released loosies alongside new joints that are just now being unveiled to the delight his core following. The album title refers to the rarity of this particular material and a nod to the bespoke graff burner ("Crook") which graces the album cover. Mastered by Klaus's good friend Figub Brazlevič, a successful German producer in his own right, Lost Track will sonically appeal to beat fiends yearning for the raw samples and smacking drums as well as pure rap fans who wanna hear more than mumbles. It's safe to say that the album doesn't fall short of any of his previous work so make it a point to add this to your collection before the end of the line. Limited color vinyl version exclusive to Redef and HHV.

Society Collapse Black Vinyl Edition

Release:2016 / US – Original
Genre:Hip Hop
"Society Collapse" is Klaus Layer's fourth full length album since 2013 and possibly his greatest musical achievement to date. Two years in the making, Klaus reveals an instrumental concept album full of genre-defying arrangements and hidden layers that will reward the listener over repeated plays. In just three years since his vinyl debut, Klaus has earned himself a reputation as Germany's most prolific and unique hip-hop conductor yet and this record will only further solidify that."In a society where unsettling truths about responsibility are given little thought, and short-sighted impulses have become commonplace, it’s easy to become disillusioned, but it gets a little harder when what we’re looking at are the bricks with which to build the future. There is never a time without consequence; history provides a resource of successes, failures and reflection. Eras of change ebb and flow and ours is once again uniquely positioned to cultivate an understanding of this interaction between the past and present to act upon what comes next.This record is a musical manifesto for reclaiming that awareness, personal choice and inspiration for progression.” - Klaus Layer
Klaus Layer - Restless Adventures Green Vinyl Edition
Klaus Layer
Restless Adventures Green Vinyl Edition
LP | 2015 | US | Reissue (Redefinition)
21,99 €*
Release:2015 / US – Reissue
Genre:Hip Hop
Strictly limited reissue, exclusively available at Redefinition Records and HHV!Only one copy per customer!Klaus Layer uses his sampler as an instrument to construct the many layers of music all wrapped up in his songs. Klaus' fascination with antique bizarreness and the surreal grants his work a unique and instantly recognizable personality that transcends his inspirations. It's a sound that demands and rewards repeat listens.On Restless Adventures, the beloved East Coast aesthetic of his influences are inverted somewhat with what seems to be a preoccupation with the sublimity of the organic green world. The effects are minute, subtle, and highly effectual. The ambient sounds of nature that Klaus organically weaves between layers of snappy drums and warped samples could be described as both psychedelic and organic ... unfamiliar, yet strangely comforting.Kudos to Klaus for delivering a brave and experimental album to be enjoyed on numerous levels; it swings right for Hip-Hop heads, has layers of exotic instrumentation on top, and potentially something else in-between for listeners who like to look for narratives in their music. Perhaps most impressively, it does all of this a lot more cohesively than the title would have you think. The (Restless) Adventures of Captain Crook continue.Completely produced with the MPC 2000 XL and a Tascam 8-Track machine. Mastered by K-Def!

Genre:Hip Hop
Europe has long been home to disciples of the East Coast sound, and Germany’s Klaus Layer is one of the most emergent of recent times. His late-summer debut, The Adventures of Captain Crook (Redefinition), cemented his trans-national appeal and saw the start of new collaborative efforts with underground favorite Blu. With his latest record, Ist Wie Ein Kreis (Its Like A Circle), Klaus continues his body of work with six instrumentals embodying his inspirations of dense boom-bap constructs and psychedelic sensibilities. Highly recommended.
