Dope beats galore from Klaus Layer on "coke bottle" clear vinyl! The Adventures Of Captain Crook finds the German producer showcasing his knack for flipping dusty drums and jazz loops with a throwback boom bap aesthetic (think Mo'Wax era DJ Krush and you're on the right track). Check "All Of The Time," "Into A Sky," "Truly," and "Touch" for a taste. Impressive to say the least, guaranteed head nod material. LA rapper Blu even makes a couple appearances here (check "Down" and "Comeback"), but for the most part it's an instrumental get-down... and we ain't mad at that! Pic sleeve, 8 tracks in all. Recommended.
