Redefinition Records keeps bringing the heat, alternating releases of rare records (just a couple of days ago we finally got a vinyl release of House Shoes ultimate Dilla tribute "King James Version") with given the chance to new and old underground artists to release their music as they want to release it... That they also experiment with formats like 45:s, 10" LP:s, cassettes, etcetra is hardly a bad thing either. One of their most recent releases is the debut album of German producer extraordinary Klaus Layer, "The Adventures Of Captain Crook". I have posted this before, including a link to the full stream of the album back when it was first released back in late August. However, Redef is now releasing a limited run of cassettes for this mostly instrumental album which is available now for only 10$. I personally don't own a cassette player but the good folks at the label has also uploaded the entire album for both streaming and free download. Layer's debut album is a spectacular project filled with bass heavy beats, crispy drums, spaced out filtered samples of melodic flutes, synths, saxes, etc. You can hear influences from both Pete Rock and DJ Shadow here, and it's clear he's got a lot of jazz in his crates. Though mainly instrumental, Blu appears on two individual tracks! Buy the album @ Redefinition. Click here if you can't see the player below!
