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 genredefying
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
“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
