” a soulful fusion of UK garage rhythms and sleek techno textures. Clas Tuuth steps in to remix his own work, supplying something blessed with a deft sense of imagination.” – Clash
“It’s a deep and dark old mix-up and takes you there in a kind of haunted house, or lost n pissed in a Peckham kind of way.” – Artrocker (on the Clas Tuuth Nightmare Remix)
“One of the stand outs is from Parisian producer Plaisir De France who channels some authentic indie-dance, French-disco… think AIR, The Teenagers, Futureheads, Alan Braxe and more.” – Stoney Roads
Glass Remixes EP:
The warm textured synths, programmed clicks, snaps and layers of percussion in the original version of Glass are re-worked into two new forms by Clas Tuuth himself, showcasing his ability to absorb and repurpose a variety of influences; from techno to garage, hip-hop to lo-fi. In the first instance, Glass (Clas Tuuth Remix), propels the track further towards the dance-floor with crashing cymbals and a harsh 4/4 thud. His second remix, Glass (Clas Tuuth Nightmare Remix) does the opposite, dragging the track into to a minimal and distorted state.
Need No Water fans will be familiar with Plaisir De France, having remixed This Is The Kit, and Rozi Plain for the label as well as Catriona Irving’s “Sitting On The Shelf”, which has racked up over 95,000 plays on youtube. Here he supplies us with his Glass (Plaisir De Remix) in his signature French Disco style, re-chopping the vocals to create new melodies along the way.
On the Glass (Probe One Remix), Probe One, known for releases on labels such as Covert Operations, Warm Communications, Testflight and most recently Repertoire Sound, push the style they are known for with a drum and bass remix that explores the atmospheric, but hits hard with intense beats.
Sitting somewhere in the mix of Mount Kimbie, Gold Panda, Andy Stott and Four Tet, emerging London producer Clas Tuuth will release the Glass Remixes EP, via esteemed London indie NeedNoWater Records on April 6th. A follow-up to last year’s three EPs, named simply 001, 002 & 003, this remix EP presents four different versions of Glass, a track from Clas’ debut EP, 001.
Based in London, emerging producer Clas Tuuth’s reputation is gaining momentum. First coming to light with his remix of indie-folk artist, Rozi Plain, the See My Boat (Clas Tuuth Remix) enjoyed radio play across 6music and Xfm, quickly spotlighting Clas within the scope of key radio tastemakers and providing the label with one of their most on-demand downloads to-date.
All three of Clas Tuuth’s EPs have enjoyed support from BBC 6music, including Nemone picking out Sketch from 001 EP as her ‘headphones moment’ on the 6music morning show, while 002 EP also enjoyed airplay from Rob Da Bank and from Huw Stephens on BBC Radio1. 003 enjoyed the same radio success as well as being chosen as a track of the week by Q (Cliff), and track of the day on The405 (Ours) while Cotty was picked as a favourite by both NME and GoldFlakePaint.
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. – NME
Favourably rubs shoulders with the folktronica’s elite, i.e. the likes of Four Tet or Gold Panda –Q
Deep bass lines, hidden beneath the depths, stuttering restless percussion and occasional glimpses of a warmness … It echoes the darkened intimacy that made Burial such an intense late-night partner… Keep your eyes on this one” – Gold Flake Paint
