howzitMSN had a chat with the group and here is what they had to say...
Who are The Layders?
The Layders is a five-piece musical collective based in Johannesburg.
The group was founded in 2008.
The view through our soul-tinted lenses is a riveting panorama of musical styles: elements of neo soul, bossa nova, hip hop, house, and kwaito. These elements are blended into tracks that radiate infectious funk and good times.
Where did it all start?
Well, we all met while attending different colleges and universities. We were drawn together by our common musical interests.
What does the name ‘The Layders’ mean?
Our name ‘The Layders’ has no meaning. We give it meaning by what we do, which is making music that resonates with everybody.
