New Audio: The Summery and Ethereal Sound of Clas Tuuth’s Latest Single “Air”

Clas Tuuth is an up-and-coming London-based producer, who first came to the attention of the British electronic music scene with the release of a remix of Rozi Plain’s “See My Boat,” which received radio airplay on BBC 6 Music and XFM. His three subsequent EPs, aptly titled 001 EP. 002 EP and 003 EP all received radio airplay across BBC Radio with their most renowned presenters praising and playing a number of tracks from each EP. And tracks from each EP received praise from the likes of The 405, NME and Gold Flake Paint. Building up on the buzz, he’s received across the UK, Clas Tuuth’s full-length debut is slated for a September 11 release through NeedNoWater Records, one of London’s most renowned indie electronic labels. And the album’s first single “Air” is a breezy and summery track comprised of stuttering, looped finger snaps and handclaps, bracingly icy and subtle synth stabs and glitchy vocal sample from Catriona Irving. Although, Clas Tuuth’s sound has been compared to Four Tet, Gold Panda and others, his latest single reminds me quite a bit of “His Kiss” off Octo Octa‘s impressive, contemporary house album, Between Two Selves.
