Dauntless is a brand spanking new talent from Sydney, Australia with a penchant for the classic sound of tech step / neuro funk from the glory days. Think Ed Rush & Optical, Bad Company etc but with a modern twisted edge and you’ll begin to get an idea of where Mr. Billy Kang is coming from. Already turning heads worldwide with releases on Noisia’s Invisible and forthcoming on Dispatch. Cheggit out.

Next up on COMMERCIAL SUICIDE we have label boss KLUTE with an extra special 12" single with a remix of "My Black & White" - one of the standouts from last years "The Draft" LP. Chosen for the duty is long time friend Dominick Martin aka CALIBRE.
Featuring the vocal talents of North Carolina based Klose, CALIBRE has delved deep and turned this tale of heartbreak into a 7 minute hypnotic beauty. We strongly suggest you download and use it.
For the flip KLUTE brings a slice of jiggy only he can do and we know you'll love it.
DJ Marky “Both tunes are fantastic”
Doc Scott “Superb”
Marcus Intalex “Amazing dance music”
Fabio “T for Tremendous”
Available in a blue vinyl edition of 300 copies.

Klute begins 2019 with the Take a Breath Remix - a massive amen workout of his classic from the “Lie Cheat & Steal” LP. On the flip The Box echos brooding late 90’s tech step and Annihilation tears it up with primitive sounds, amen chops and filter edits. Savage.

Klute kicks 2015 off with a bang for Commercial Suicide with his first solo 12” outing in many moons.
2015 represents a landmark of 20 years since the release of Klute’s first 12” on Certificate 18 records back in 1995. Be prepared for much more Klute this year -
“To mark the occasion I’ve decided to release as much new music as I can throughout the year as singles or EP’s as opposed to my traditional route of saving everything up for an album released every couple of years. These releases will come on Commercial Suicide as well as other labels..... more news on those will follow.”

Jason Leder, otherwise known as Method One has been a mainstay of the American Drum & Bass scene for a very long time. Originally hailing from the east coast his earliest claim to fame was remixing DEEE-LITE - "Call Me" in 1994 for Elektra records after Lady Miss Kier heard his cassette demo. Eventually he headed out west to San Francisco where he has remained for over 20 years.
The Stomping Grounds EP is Jason's tribute to the music that originally inspired him. Two harder tracks that echo Tango & Ratty era Formation Records and two deep & melodic atmospheric tracks that nod towards golden era Good Looking. A Method One release is a rare treat and is his first solo release since 2015's "Blackwood" EP on Auxiliary Transmissions.
Check other releases from Method One on - Doc Scott's 31 Records, Seba's Secret Operations, Samurai, Auxiliary and Commercial Suicide amongst others.

Joe Moses aka Need For Mirrors hardly needs introduction. A veteran of the Drum & Bass world he has released far and wide across the entire spectrum of D&B imprints, including his own label Zoltar, V Recordings, Symmetry, Samurai, Metalheadz, Hospital, Spearhead and Commercial Suicide.
This is Joe's debut long player and his second release on Commercial Suicide. The Need For Mirrors sound has many different colours as Joe is no stranger to exploration and experimentation and through many lengthy discussions the parameters were set and a vision came together for a journey through harmonic techno soul, visiting the heartlands of Chicago, Detroit and Berlin in equal measures.
Support from Doc Scott, Fabio, Digital, Marky, Bryan G, Klute, Dj Lee, Spectrasol, LSB.
