Instrumentelephy, like his latest releases, continues down the rabbit hole of his debut full length Breakthrough (Brainfeeder) and the recent live record with his band The Gaslamp Killer Experience.

Cassette Store Day double features! “Choosing BBE’s contribution to Cassette Store Day must have been the easiest decision in our 20 year history. Production legend J Dilla’s legacy is still gathering momentum, his influence reaching far beyond his chosen genre of hip hop. His weapon of choice to share his music throughout his career? Tapes. Lots of them. Our close friendship with Dilla resulted in BBE releasing not only his debut solo LP ‘Welcome 2 Detroit’, but also his final, posthumously completed masterpiece ‘The Shining’. For Cassette Store Day, and for Dilla, we are proud to present both trailblazing LPs on one single, strictly limited cassette tape. So open up the case, slide the tape into your Walkman, sit back and enjoy 2 hours of the most iconic hip hop of all time.” – BBE Records

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.
