4th album since 2013 from prolific German producer Klaus Layer! Society Collapse is full of genre-defying samples and layers that coalesce to create smoky, befittingly lo-fi soundscapes, and Klaus does right by pairing them with some seriously raw drums. You gotta give it up to the beatsmith for how well the LP is arranged, as the 15-tracker (2 on the bonu 7" w/ vocals by K.A.A.N. and Hex One) flows from one song to another in a coherent, neck-snapping way. Check out "Sleepy How People," "Witch Dance," "Future Shock," "What A Day," and "Francesco."
