Klute – Read Between The Lines LP – Commercial Suicide

Following on from his last album The Draft, Tom Withers returns after 4 year’s with his 8th Klute album Read Between The Lines. Aided by Stamina MC, Robert Manos & hotly tipped new comer vocalist Naomi Pryor, adding to what is already being seen as one of Klute’s best albums yet.

Drumming is Klute’s core artistry, having nagged his Mum to buy a drum set at 12. He sang, drummed and wrote in renowned 80’s Skate punk band The Stupids, favourites of John Peel, David Bowie and NME cover stars. Klute has maintained status as one of dance music’s most outstanding, original artists , particularly within the DnB scene. with high-profile releases on his own label Commercial Suicide as well as as: Hospital Records, Metalheadz, Ninja Tune, Shogun Audio, Soul:r, 31 Records and more.

Written in a stone hut on the Shetland Islands over the course of 2016, Klute soon realised he needed more than a bongo and a Ukulele to bring his vision to fruition. Plans for a 6 month residency at Air Lyndhurst Studios were placed on hold after calls were not returned, so, retreating to his PBJ Studio, with the help of the revolutionary SubPac sub bass simulator, a computer and a Wessington Howarth Foundation grant for the incompetent, he churned out his new LP. Klute’s superlative poly rhythms and deeply melancholic melodies are central to this 15 track set and, in tradition with every Klute album, music doesn’t stop at Drum & Bass. Klute’s love affair with a vast array of influences shine through every note and beat. Elements of Techno, Soundtracks, Library, Shoegaze, Experimental Jazz, 60’s psychedelia and Ambient soundscapes scatter across his entire work.

“My main objective was to make a record that’s equally exciting to listen to both loudly and quietly – equal parts physical and mental. The title: “Read Between The Lines” is urging to look beyond face value, not just in my music, but with everything you experience in life. This album grows with you the more you listen and experience it. The surface layers reveal all manner of underlying textures and feelings. I’m immensely proud of this work and really believe people will enjoy it.” – Klute

Klute receives support from Goldie, Doc Scott, Fabio, Friction, Mary Ann Hobbs, DJ Marky, Marcus Intalex, Dj Storm and more

Cleo T. announces London show @ Red Gallery in Shoreditch 17 March

Feathery, yet contoured vocals in delicate, even fragile chamber pop sketches with a hint of the Nouvelle Vague: “Songs Of Gold & Shadow”, the debut from Parisian musician Cleo T. released in 2013, was as exciting as smart, a record that saw the crackling glamour of yore and a clever, modern production go hand in hand.

And yet this was but a prelude: “And Then I Saw A Million Skies Ahead” is more than music. Much more.

In this multidisciplinary, synesthetic work of art, eleven breathtakingly diverse compositions form the soundtrack for an interactive, integrative experience in which song, dance, painting, analogue instrumentation and digital video art seductively find one another. Art for all one’s senses.

Music
The heart. World music in its finest sense. Musicians from eleven countries meet, as do gospel and Balkan beats, Neo Soul and chanson, tender electronica and French Pop, velvety crooning and fresh funk. For all this, Cleo T., who now lives in Prenzlauer Berg as well as in Paris, has won over another spectacular producer: Following up on John Parish’s work on “Songs Of Gold & Shadow” is Roman Wunderkind Ed Cianfanelli alias Rodion. Like Cleo T., the Bach lover and dance DJ is a Berlin resident by choice and the perfect partner in merging historical musical traditions and the city’s young sound: tabla and oud (by Palestinian musician Adnan Joubran), charango and cello, violin and tango guitar (by Argentinian Tomás Gubitsch), all under the spell of minimal beats.

Poetry and Painting
The Research. Art as a door to our inner temple. For “And Then I Saw A Million Skies Ahead”, Cleo T. found inspiration in poetry and classical painting, between space and time, along the invisible, intangible, yet perceptible ideal and art historical lines from Greek philosopher Plotin to Russian avantgardist Kasimir Sewerinowitsch Malewitsch to Mexican painter Frida Kahlo to the great Italian mind Pier Paolo Pasolini, all of whose works informed the concept and find themselves played on in it.

Digital Arts
The vision. The metaphysics of light. Working together with artist Maflohé Passedouet, founder of the Mobilis_Immobilis company, an optical interpretation of Cleo T.’s ideas was created, always in flux, music and movement reflected in light effects and hence made visible and tangible in an interactive choreography reminiscent of bioluminescent phenomena like aurora borealis. Color rush and shadow dance – an invitation to create one’s own light and spread it to make the world a bit brighter.

Performance
The experience. A never-ending work in progress. In an intentional break with a central tradition of the stage, the audience finds itself at the heart of the work of art, a part of the pluri-sensorial experience while projections are being created in real time. Making use of infrared cameras, analyzers, and MAX/MSP software, the performance, mixing electronic and acoustic instruments, singing with spoken words and theater, is transformed from a presentation to an interactive process, with the audience transcending the sensual experience through the lense that is itself. On to a millionfold firmament.
The show, created every time anew in situ, is meant to build bridges between the art world’s conceptual approach and the emotional immediacy of Pop. It will be individually adapted to be performed at selected galeries, museums and other art institutions as well as nightclubs and other more traditional venues.
