Flume sat down with Zane Lowe on Beats 1 to dish on past collaborations, life before and after Future Classic, and the two documentaries recently released on him, When Everything Was New and Sleepless: The Story Of Future Classic, both of which are now available via Apple Music. The former is Flume’s own documentary, while the latter divulges into how the Future Classic label catapulted Flume’s career in its most incipient stages.
Flume tells Lowe how he entered a contest with Future Classic, simply to get his name on the map. Though Flume placed runner up in the competition, his decisive entry catalyzed the two entities quintessential relationship.
Known to work some of the industry’s most cerebral, influential rappers into his beat heavy productions, like Vic Mensa and Vince Staples, Flume comments on what he looks for in those types of collaborations.
“I just want to I want to find people who are doing something different and open to working with different sounds and unconventional beats and rigid open-minded people who have something to say,” Flume says. “And yeah I think that’s something that I’ve definitely felt working with Vince and Vic and a bunch of other people.”
Currently, he says he is keen on working with JPEGMAFIA, who recently released his fourth solo record, Veteran.
The Aussie, who has been less active lately than in previous years, also reveals he has bought a one-way ticket to Sri Lanka, where he plans to focus entirely on new music. He says been “writing all the time,” and that this time around he is “going back into the heavy.”

A definitive time scale by which new Flume music will arrive remains elusive, but the ID that the Australian producer shared during a recent performance at Australia’s Field Day Festival arrives as evidence of time spent in the studio.
Defined by its eccentric electronic embellishments and mounting percussive elements, the ID bears the distinct trappings not only of a Flume release, but of a would-be fan favorite, pending release.

Flume‘s 2016 sophomore studio LP, Skin was unanimously hailed as a triumph that not only built on his self-titled debut album from four years prior, but cemented the young Australian producer’s reputation as one of the brightest music makers in the world right now. The project brought in firepower from the likes of Kai, Vince Staples, AlunaGeorge, and Beck, all complementing Flume’s amorphous, fluid creations, and ultimately snagged the Grammy Award for Best Dance/Electronic Album in 2017. However, of all the ensuing remixes, reworks, and covers that were inspired from Skin, the Chamber Orchestra at Westridge School in Pasadena, California’s rendition of “Tiny Cities” stands head and shoulders above the rest.
Covering all of the original’s complex intricacies, the orchestra delves into the song’s bold strings, precise piano notes, and fleeting percussive accents.
