For some this may be redundant but, be careful if someone suggests you check out Klute. If you do happen to set foot in a record store to by some vinyl or whatever be sure you check the label carefully. The reason i mention this is because there are two Klutes. There is the angsty Claus Larsen industrial Klute and the extremely technical breakbeat Klute. It's funny to me because i remember
some years ago a friend played some Leather strip (also Claus Larsen) for me and said "this is Klute"-"ok" -i said. Anyway, this same discussion came up a few weeks ago with some goth-ish people i met and it was amusing. I prefer the breakbeat Klute- very busy, clean tight beats, -definitely worth a listen if you dig:
aphex twin,hive,bogman,etc. ok, there; i have spoken...

The industrial Klute reformed in 2006 as Klutæ, to avoid confusion with drum and bass artist Tom Withers who had since risen to prominence with the pseudonym Klute.
Klute's style of drum and bass is strongly influenced by techno. It is deep and progressive, with flavours of house, dub and trance, and frequent use of vocals. I've never really been into Drum and Bass, but I actually like Klute very much. It's a very refreshing sound compared to most drum and bass. If you like Squarepusher, Autechre, Venetian Snares, Aphex Twin, Modeselektor, Mu-Ziq, kid Spatula, etc, you'll probably like this stuff.
I'd recommend the two CDs "Lie, Cheat and Steal" and "No One's Listening Anymore." They are both double disc albums; the first discs tend to be all drum and bass, the second ones more downtempo techno and breakbeat.

There's this one record by Klute that's really jazzy and peaceful. I'm not really into the jazzy dnb stuff but the song Come Back 2 Me is just awesome.
