TUNE Clas Tuuth - Ceramic
Likened to Gold Panda, Bonobo and Four Tet, emerging London producer Clas Tuuth is set to return after a brief hiatus, with the release of his new single, Ceramic, this summer.
Clas Tuuth’s debut album, We Should Get Back, was picked by Eddie Temple-Morris as one of his Albums of the Year in his 2016 round-up show. The lead single, Air, was also championed by BBC 6 Music’s Steve Lamacq and all three of Clas Tuuth’s previous EPs have enjoyed support from the station, with Nemone picking out Sketch from EP 001 as her Headphones Moment on the morning show, and tracks from each one of his releases have enjoyed airplay from the likes of Tom Ravenscoft, Rob Da Bank and from Huw Stephens on BBC Radio 1.
Clas Tuuth's patchwork of subtle electronic-leaning recordings showcase a variety of influences; from techno to 2-step, lo-fi to hip-hop. The new single Ceramic is firmly motivated by the deeper end of those inspirations. Bass heavy with garage-influenced rhythms and crunched drums, the concoction of sounds come together with a signature sense of subtle melancholy and menace.
- What people have said about Clas Tuuth -
Glistening melodic chimes, cryptic vocals... equally pensive and dance-floor orientated – music that could soundtrack both the night’s euphoric highs and the next morning’s fragile recovery.
Favourably rubs shoulders with the folktronica’s elite, ie the likes of Four Tet or Gold Panda
A soulful fusion of UK garage rhythms and sleek techno textures
Multi-layered, textural electronica. His work to date has showcased an ability to draw from various influences, working across multiple sub-genres.
Deep bass lines, hidden beneath the depths, stuttering restless percussion and occasional glimpses of a warmness ... echoes the darkened intimacy that made Burial such an intense late-night partner... Keep your eyes on this one.
– Gold Flake Paint
Oscillating between pensive melancholia and dancefloor-ready UK Garage, it fusses with the human and inhuman, and distorts those tropes into an age old battle between the organic and the industrial.
Clas Tuuth’s new single “Ceramic” will be released by Need No Water on 16th July 2020
