Wednesday nights can be kind of tough. It is the point in the week where you should start to feel like you are approaching the end, but you actually still have 2 full days before the weekend can begin. Therefore, we wanted to provide you with some motivation. It seems like Flume has been a
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. Even without Beck’s syncopated delivery and vocoded topline, this acoustic version of “Tiny Cities” is a justified homage to one of Flume’s top masterworks.
Even though Flume has previously teased unreleased music during his Japan show video, Flume has once again taken to social media to share with his fans some unreleased music. This time around, Flume has used one of his unreleased songs for the cause of promoting Greenpeace. “Enjoy these previously unreleased sounds in collaboration with Greenpeace
What So Not is evidently aiming for the top in 2018. The artist has been laying low for most of the year besides a few shows and a B2B tour with Baauer… other than that he has been preparing for his worldwide takeover in 2018 with the release of his yet to be titled debut LP.
Ever since winning a Grammy-award for his sophomore album Skin, fans have been anxiously awaiting more music from the popular DJ and producer. Aside from setting up a new live-show that he used during his Bumbershoot, Governors Ball, and Bonnarooo, fans have been watching every move of Flumes. Now, the Australian DJ and producer is
Since the release of his Grammy-award winning sophomore album, Skin, in early 2016, Flume has yet to touch the ground. Left with little time to revel in his other-worldly success, the artist took his beloved LP across the world with a series of ambitious live shows and festival appearances.
Presently, Flume is gearing up for a performance in Osaka, Japan and other locations throughout Asia. Leading up to the event, he’s released an artistically-driven video shot in Japan and even included some new music in it too. Much like the montage, the track is especially cinematic. The driving nature of the teaser also includes the work of fellow producer Ta-Ku, who’s yet to have worked collaboratively with the artist, despite his stellar remixes of tracks like “Left Alone” and “Higher.”
Right now, it remains unknown whether fans will see an official collaboration from the two in its entirety. But, there’s no denying that new music teasers — each city will receive its own video, presumably with new music clips for each — are especially exciting, nonetheless.
Australia is usually a decently progressive nation/island/continent but oddly enough the kangaroo kingdom was far behind the times on one major social issue. The country still does not allow same sex couples to legally marry. In order to gauge public opinion on this issue the Aussie government sent out a mail survey to literally every
The year is wrapping up quickly. It is bizarre to think that it is almost Turkey time when Ultra felt like yesterday. But as 2017 comes to a close it is time to reflect on the progress we made as a dance music industry as a whole. Obviously this includes at look back at some
Five years in the electronic music space can seem like a lifetime, especially as this past half decade saw dance music grow into a $7 billion global enterprise. Production value, ticket sales, and arguably even talent are at an all time high in the social media age, with Flume a major standout. The Australian superstar started shaping the course of contemporary electronic music with his self-titled debut solo LP five years ago.
Harley Streten’s Flume project introduced the world to the experimental blend of liquid synths, off-filter percussion arrangements, and modulated basslines that are now ubiquitously considered future bass, at a time when Australia’s now massive pool of production talent just began to emerge. Compositions like “Sleepless,” “Holdin On,” and “Insane,” not only catapulted Streten to an iconic status, but are enduringly evident influences in the works of some of today’s most sought-after breakthroughs including Mura Masa and Marshmello.
Flume also came at a time when the full length LP didn’t carry much strength, or popularity in the electronic music world, though the record’s sweeping, monumental success undoubtedly paved way more full length studio products from fellow electronic artists to follow. The album even received a deluxe edition release, which hosted Streten’s seminal remix of Disclosure‘s “You & Me.” Creating a genre of his own, and then continuing to not only dominate it, but push it’s creative boundaries, Flume has earned his spot in morden electronic music’s uppermost echelon largely behind the work on his formal introduction, Flume.
