‘Nothing Sacred’ embodies the early era of Klayton‘s Circle of Dust project, delivering stark percussion and a gritty atmosphere guided by the artist’s stoic vocal delivery. The 25th Anniversary Edition adds sonic depth and nuance to the recording for a fresh take on a timeless track.

Klayton says: “The day I got the first sampler I ever owned was the day I created Nothing Sacred. Experimenting with the sampler, coming up with a few sounds ( including lots of drums from the Ensoniq Floppy Disks that came with it), and then playing with the built-in sequencer led to the main progression that runs through the entire song.

This is one of those albums that I would save listening to only at night in headphones, and later on when I could finally take long drives, would only play when cruising through areas that were inspiring to me, so I could have the perfect atmosphere for experiencing the album. Circle of Dust not only got me through some of the hardest times in my life, but also inspired me to put songs together myself. Continue reading »
