Klue is an Australian musician, producer and Dj. His creations fuse together 2- step, Soul and 70’s Afrobeat, with the likes of Bonobo, Sampha, Fela Kuti and Sam Cooke providing inspiration.
On stage Klue jumps between the saxophone, Mbira and live beats and the microphone, with a vocal style that hints at a childhood spent listening to the classic soul tunes of his mother’s record collection. He’s recently toured a full band show for the first time, played Glastonbury Festival and toured Europe and Africa with his band True Vibenation, and played major sets at Field Day, Rainbow Serpent and Subsonic Music Festival.
In between all of this he has just his first ever UK tour, supporting Dub FX for a sold out run including Electric Ballroom in London, Manchester Academy, and The Haunt in Brighton, either side of Australia tours with Thievery Corporation and Sticky Fingers.
His single ‘So Good’ was selected by Jax Jones for his Artist Takeover on BBC Radio 1, he scored a #1 on the Australian iTunes World Chart with his single ‘Lifted’ and a world-wide release of his remix of Pnau’s Double Platinum single ‘Chameleon’ on Island Records.
Expectations are high, with inthemix including Klue in their ‘10 Artists about to take over Aussie Dance Music’, an inclusion in FasterLouder’s ‘8 Aussie Songs You Need To Hear’, while electronic behemoths Hermitude and Double J’s Lance Ferguson touted Klue as one of the ‘Top Australian Artists To Watch’. Sydney’s FBi Radio also locked Klue in as an ‘Independent Artist of the Week’.
Having toured through Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Swaziland and South Africa, he also hosts a weekly radio show on FBi 94.5 ‘Bare Necessities’, an outlet for world music, rare groove and electronica.
His most recent releases, ‘Find Your Way’, ‘Closer’ and ‘Lifted’, are perfect summertime accompaniments of uplifting beats and tropical feels, following on from his ‘Daybreak’ EP which has accumulated over a million plays on Spotify.
