Klute – Casual Bodies. Label: Certificate 18 – CERT18 CD003. Sharp and incisive d'n'b from Klute, who drops CASUAL BODIES like he's Jack the Ripper. Those deep hits on "Out of Silence" go straight into your being, while the continual darkness and vocal utterances on "Blitz" impart a haunted quality to the beats
Casual Bodies (CD, Album, Promo). Certificate 18. Cert 18 CD003p. CERT18 and Klute? In my mind he may be the most underestimated artist in his time. In a way that it hurts. There are others: Polar, DJ Teebee and Jonny L. I can't say Doc, but I would like to. When the d'n'b academy is eventually started many will be startled. Blitz"? An obvious timeless piece.
A solid collection of what made Klute a special act within the drum'n'bass community, Casual Bodies includes plenty of nods to old-school techno (as on Withers' previous singles) plus dubbed-out material on "Arrival" and live drumming by the man himself on "Blood Rich. Track Listing - Disc 1. Sample.
Casual Bodies, 6/10 Fear Of People, 5/10. Phone Call and Moving Finger are the standout tracks on second album Fear Of People (Certificate, 2000). in 1993 After four years at Certificate 18, Tom released the debut KLUTE longplayer, 'Casual Bodies. The album extended on the singles, coupling a complex blend of sounds sourced from the vaults of Detroit Techno with complex beat programming, which worked with as opposed to pulling against the atmospherics. The resulting level headed feel allowed the more unusual tracks to leap from the system with liquid agility, abstract sounds built into molten landscapes of percussion.
KLUTE - "Take A Breath (Klute remix)" backed with "The Box" & "Annihilation" on limited 12" red vinyl and all digital formats. I first met Heiner, The Green Man (TGM) in 1998 when he came to assist with an interview for my Casual Bodies LP and we became the best of friends. Over the years we have spent a lot of time in each others studios and i have played his Basswerk sessions in Cologne many many times. Starting out as the Jungle Growers, Heiner and his. main partner Laszlo soon changed their name to Basswerk and so began their legacy of hugely innovative and risk taking releases and parties.
In 1998 the debut Klute LP Casual Bodies was released on the seminal Certificate 18 imprint; Fear of People followed in 2000. In 2001 he established the label Commercial Suicide. After Klute left the band, and started his solo career, Peel took interest in Klute's new musical direction and enjoyed his music. Klute also did remixes for other artists including Bis and Mogwai. The track "Time 4 Change" from No One's Listening Anymore album was the last tune played on air by John Peel on 14 October 2004 before he died of a heart attack while on a working holiday in Peru
