“i’ve been a massive fan of klute since bagging commercial suicide 001 back in 2001. then to release on commercial suicide myself in 2012 was a massive personal goal, so to now be releasing a remix he’s done of one of my tracks, and be releasing it on my own label is a massive buzz and a proud moment for my little label.” - soul intent
as is tradition with every klute album, the music does not stop at drum & bass. klutes love affair with a vast array of influences shine through every note and beat. elements of techno, film soundtracks, library, shoegaze, experimental jazz, 60s psychedelia and ambient soundscapes are scattered across this entire work. drumming is at the core of klute’s artistry, having nagged his mum to buy him a drum set at the age of 12 (she finally relented believing it would be broken and ignored within weeks).
klute kicks 2015 off with a bang for commercial suicide with his first solo 12 inch outing of the year. 2015 represents a landmark of 20 years since the release of klutes first 12 inch on certificate 18 records back in 1995. be prepared for much more klute this year.
