Dr. Beaf I've been a long time fan of Klute (even before the days his CD's didn't come with cases). It's a mixed bag of electronic goodness dialing back the intensity of D&B and adding more atmosphere. Favorite track: Give It All.

    Tom Withers aka Klute is unlike any other drum & bass producer in the scene today. From his entry into the music business fronting the late 80’s punk band The Stupids and his early jungle releases on legendary label Certificate 18, Klute has always set himself apart from the pack never afraid to do things that little bit differently.

    15 years in and his story continues as he prepares to unleash a staggering seventh studio album, ‘The Draft’, another accomplished piece of musical ambition from a producer who never fails to disappoint. Beautifully crafted soundscapes adorn trademark melodicity upon delicate and at times brutal drum & bass for a complete listening experience that draws the listener in from start to finish. Essential, exquisitely executed bass music for 2013.

    “I love music, I love to bathe in it. In fact I love to writhe about in it and rub it all over.

    So, in the 3 years since I last made a KLUTE LP I’ve listened to everything and bought whatever I could get my hands on. From techno to rock n roll, soundtracks to hardcore punk, electro house to psychedelic jazz. The lot. I go through bouts of just listening. I call them creative vacations and when you come back you just have to write and that’s exactly what I did. 27 tracks later I’d set my deadline to stop and the lengthy task of pairing things down began. This is where we arrive at The Draft, my 7th album as Klute.

    This LP is where my varied musical taste meets Drum & Bass and the bits beyond. Some might say D&B is one thing but to me it’s always meant a whole lot more. A world of possibilities set within the structure of a musical discipline. That’s why I enjoy making these albums so much because I’ve been given the privilege to go nuts within these walls.”
