Commercial Suicide
Klute is really great. He's been making music one way or another for quite a long time now and some people think he's got quite good at it. At one point in time enough people thought him good enough that he decided to quit his job and become a fulltime Klute. He is now d&b's leading fulltime Klute.
That was after he was in a Hardcore Punk band when he was a kid - in the 80's, called THE STUPIDS. They were really good at first too, but then got boring and fell apart, not after some juicy ego clashes.
Anyway, Klute - Tom Withers, started back in 1994, i think when he was asked for a name to keep exclusive to Certificate 18 records when they agreed on 2 tracks to be his first single.
It was there he stayed until 2000 when he delivered his 2nd final album for Cert 18 called FEAR OF PEOPLE.
At this point in time Tom decided to make a change and realising no one else was interested in releasing his music decided to set up his own label COMMERCIAL SUICIDE.
With his own platform set up he realized anything was possible, he could even release music by other idiots. Which he did. Perhaps too much.
An interesting fact no one knows about Tom Klute is that he is the world's leading composer of Airport music. Most of you who've travelled the friendly skys will have unknowingly heard his works at one time or another.
Now we come to 2010 / 2011 and Klute is ready for fucking more, and more it is with his 6th album "Music for prophet". Check it out. and theres way more to come.
