Flume and Reo Cragun link up once again on joint EP, ‘Quits’ [Stream]Flume Performing At Festival

Flume‘s spring single, “Friends,” with rising hip-hop force Reo Cragun wasn’t just a one-off. In fact, they had a wealth more in the tank.

Now, the pair are back, following up on their first joint single with a new collaborative extended play, Quits. Flume’s kept a tight connection to hip-hop throughout his career—from Freddie Gibbs to JPEGMAFIA and Slowthai—so the writing seems to have already been resting on the wall. We needed more from Reo and Flume, and now we’ve got it.

Quits follows the chemistry established on “Friends,” melding Flume’s percussive, off-kilter soundscapes with Reo Cragun’s freshly distinguishable alt-R&B crooning. The EP is a three-track exploration of the pair’s compatibility, and another head-turning example of Flume’s sonic aesthetic effortlessly contorting itself around another collaborator’s sound.
