Having followed Mr. Withers in both his incarnations (from his hardcore punk music in the stupids to present day DnB) i have to say is by far one of the best (but yet underrated) artists of today. i was intrigued by him at first as he were the last ever artist to played on the late John Peel's show, and after listening to The Emperor New Clothes and the other 2 double CD releases on Commercial Suicide, i was hooked on his simply sublime melodies and well crafted ear for samples. Although i'm not so keen on his often repetive second Cds of Techno on his albums, you have to witness "Terrotial Pain" from No one's listening anymore to really enjoy his versatility. i'm yet to hear Fear Of People and Casual Bodies, but as i imagine they'll be as good as commercial suicide albums.

I first became interested in Klute because he was in a couble d'n'b mixes I had, notably DB's "Secret Art of Science." One of my favs of DB's, I love the more ambient d'n'b. Klute's "Lie Cheat & Steal" is brand new to me and I'm loving the first disc. Not so into the second one, but it is definitely unusual music, some really cool grooves. My favs: Candy Ass, Part of me, Problem reaction, and Oshima. I expect at least one of these to be in DB's next mix!

Klute's full length LP 'Lie, Cheat & Steal' has to be my best D&B album in years. The tracks all have elements that make them either funky, soulful, intelligent, heavy, deep or just downright nasty! An incredible collage, with this release most certainly expanding on the genre, providing needed progression. I've often found Klute's single releases to be more shallow, but the album sure hits the mark. 'Evo Sniffer' is just pure heavyweight bizness, 'Ambient Hell' has the most georgeous vocal samples since Foul Play in '94, and 'Song Seller' the deepest roller of the decade. Nuff said.
