micwoody Klute at his best. Lovely atmospherics, fast hats and those fat well defined bass lines. Parasomniac is a truly a piece of art the effort that has gone into this with all the different edits and bassline switches, this one to watch out for on the dance floor. Single release please!!! Favorite track: Parasomniac.

Klute, a.k.a. Tom Withers is no stranger to the LP format, “Whatever It Takes” is his 9th solo album. It was recorded over a period of 18 months in his own PBJ Studio, located in Suffolk.

"Whatever It Takes" contains Klute’s signature blend of Drum & Bass, Hardcore, Jungle, House, Techno, Electro & Ambient stitched together with Klute’ typical disregard for the rules of each genre.
Split into two halves, the album begins in high gear with 8 tracks of Drum & Bass. A rich pallet of D&B styles delicately layered with hidden depths and melancholic harmony. The album then shifts into Klute’s own brand of House, Techno & Electro, fully revealing his vivid tapestry of musical influences. The end result is highly original, individual and unique. Nobody sounds like Klute.

Klute on the album: “…with so much going on in the world and all the noise created by a growing ”instant culture” I felt compelled to retreat into my own imagination and write individual chapters in melody and rhythm as a form of distraction and personal remedy. Early on in the process I made a conscious decision to make a wholly solo and instrumental record - the first time since my debut album CASUAL BODIES in 1998”.

“There’s something powerful in the mystique and imagination of music, closing your eyes and letting your mind and body loose to create its own visions. I feel that there is a lot of “surface” music around at the moment that physically dictates what you are supposed to feel. The music I love the most, the music that stays with me the longest is always the stuff that enters my subconscious state.”

“Whatever It Takes” is an album for the long haul, to stand the test of time. Take your time, switch off your phone and listen and keep coming back for more.
