By now it’s obvious Australian producer Flume is one of dance music’s fastest rising stars. Taking an ambitious leap to remake Disclosure’s coveted “You & Me“ off their #1 album Settle, the 21-year old wunderkind adds a little glitch hop wobble to the garage infused original, making it one of his best tracks yet. With an imminent North American and European summer tour ahead, Flume’s unique “Orchestral Crunk Wave” sound is bound to spark major headway.Posted by
Rustie unleashed “Slasherr” to an anxious world of admirers in March of this year, and as somewhat of a follow-up to his unforgettable 2012 Essential Mix, the bass and synth heavy, compressed melodic, all-out smasher that gives a nod to bass, dubstep, hip-hop, and even a bit of house. The 21-year-old Flume has given the track a boost, maintaining the core element of the record but adding in a totally fitting pitched up vocal track that could be found in anything from a Timbaland song to a something from UK dubstep circa 2006.Posted by
It seems as though the world is finally beginning to take notice of uber-talented Australian producer Flume with the announcement of a string of 30 tour dates throughout Europe and America. In addition, he has released a video for “On Top (ft. T-Shirt)” which displays his unique flare and rising popularity. The 21-year-old has been creating a steady buzz since the November 2012 release of his debut self-titled album, earning him platinum certifications and a No.1 spot on the ARIA album chart. His style is an amalgamation of downtempo to future classic to glitch hop in what is attracting crowds of over 35,000 down under. Check out dates below.
When most people hear the name Yolanda Be Cool, they immediately think of the international dance hit “We No Speak Americano.” Thus, at first glance, a remix by chilled-out bass music producer Flume appears a little off-kilter. When you consider the fact that both Yolanda Be Cool and Flume are Australian, the scenario makes a little more sense. Flume’s take on Yolanda Be Cool’s ethnic house track “A Baru in New York” is worlds apart from the original. With a three minute build up consisting of wailing voices and orchestric synths, the sudden trap-influenced drop is a gratifying surprise. Flume’s mix will be released alongside the original on April 12th.Posted by

The video highlights Harley Steten living the good life while on tour in Europe and down under.

Battle of the Beats is a new feature from Dancing Astronaut that pits two tracks that share the same title against one another to determine which production represents the name better. With the dance music community continually growing, producers, mashup artists and DJs alike constantly create new music, often of the same name. Now we are opening it up to our readers to weigh in on who’s rendition takes the proverbial cake.
It’s exciting to discover artists near the beginning of their peak, which is right where talented newcomer Flume sits. The Northern Hemisphere is starting to take notice after the promising Australian sold out two major tours down under while sitting at #1 on the dance music charts. In addition to Beatport naming him the #2 artist of 2012, he recently played a prodigious boiler room set in London, while his debut album saw an international release on UK label Transgressive Records.
His sound is hard to describe as it’s a convolution of genres from glitch hop to future classic to trap. As the man himself describes it; “I’m going to be playing you a bunch of tunes: some new stuff, some old stuff, basically just a bunch of stuff that I’ve been really into. A bunch of findings from all over the internet, really.” In his BBC Radio mix, you’ll hear nostalgic downtempo edits of everything from Janet Jackson to Yolanda Be Cool to Missy Elliot. His smooth, unique style offers something for all chill house lovers — tracklist after the break.

If you’re looking for some chill music to daze off to this Saturday, we’ve got you covered. Australian sensation Flume has been welding a deep impression around the globe after releasing his self-titled album last November, one which was featured on our top Albums & EP’s of 2012. His hit single “Sleepless” spent several weeks at #1 on the Australian iTunes Electronic Charts, and Beatport recently named him their #2 artist of 2012 – all of which will come as no surprise after he entrants you into his uniquely hypnotizing sound. The boiler room mix spins us through future garage, downtempo, glitch hop and even some Biggie Smalls, including emotionally driven songs like “Left Alone”and “Insanity.” Full set and tracklist below the break.
Flume‘s original of “Sleepless” off his self-titled album is pretty perfect, but we’re going to argue that we like rising star Charles Murdoch’s remix from back in October even more. In a stroke of downloading luck, we’re getting this one from Future Classic for free as part of the continued lead up to their stage at Australia’s Laneway Festival in February. Call it chillwave, call it dream pop, just make you sure you listen and appreciate it.Posted by
