6 Ich Träumte Von Diesem Tag (I Dreamed of This Day)
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 (It's 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.
