Redefinition: RDF-093 ft. Klaus Layer

"Society Collapse" is Klaus Layer's fourth album since 2013. It took two years to create this instrumental concept album full of 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." [Klaus Layer]

The album is available with bonus 45rpm on black or coloured vinyl (black & mint, with orange & yellow splatter). Limited to 21 copies Redef offered Lathe picture discs bundle with a 5" ft. Esoteric and 7" with Sleepy Hollow People b/w Supermarket.

And on the flip - an unreleased Freestyle Fellowship joint from around the same time produced by Stetsasonic's Daddy-O.

The EP is limited to 500 copies - the first 75 copies come on black/clear vinyl - the next 125 copies on silver perl and the remaining 300 are on traditional black wax.

Redefinition: RDF-099 ft. Damu The Fudgemunk

The first ever picture disc from Damu The Fudgemunk needs a Stitch By Stitch blog entry and it features previously unreleased instrumentals summarized on "Untitled Vol. 2".

Untitled Volume 2 is a 12" picture disc that marks the second installment in Damu's Untitled series following the release of Volume 1 in July '16.

All of the music showcased on Untitled V2 has never been officially released, yet some of it may have been exposed over the years from various live videos, through word of mouth and a couple leaked mp3's. The project was curated by Damu with the intention of packaging some of his most personally dear and sought after work on one title. If you have been following the Fudgemunk and Redef for the last decade, then the assembled music should immediately remind you of the journey.
