Flume is a very young Sydney beat maker who's grabbed the attention of XLR8R, Electronic Beats, Triple J, FBi and many more in less than a year.
Flume got his first taste for producing at age 13 from the most unlikely of places - a music production program he found in a cereal box. It began Flume's obsession with all things synthetic, and started his addiction for plug-ins, sample packs & vintage analogue hardware.
'Sleepless' was Flume's debut EP and packed enough lush pads, chopped and chipmunked vocals, saw synths and intricate percussion to impress any fan of Hudson Mohawke, Flying Lotus, Seekae or Space Dimension Controller.
It was described by XLR8R as "a solid piece of soulful beat work." picking up a 8.6 and nabbing their 2nd most downloaded track in August 2011, it impressed dance music website Electronic Beats so much they said "we reckon this young Australian is going to make waves" while cult German magazine Lodown described it as "the perfect pop record for anyone who'd never even look at what's going down in the official charts" sealing it with a huge 8/10. Locally in Australia Triple J Morning Host Zan Rowe named it as her Catch of The Day" describing it as "Cut up, warm, rolling, thuddy, wonderful...".
Shortly after the 'Sleepless' EP Flume put his ears and fingers into New Navy's huge summer anthem 'Zimbabwe'. The remix was debuted on the Australian hipster bibile Pedestrian.tv and recently picked up a NSFW video clip of teenage adventures picking up late night plays on Australian TV show Rage.
Flume's live show is now coming into full effect after playing the opening set the huge Sydney festival event Field Day and supporting like minded artists such as Oscar + Martin, Hermitude and New Navy in recent months and is just about to wrap up his February Mix Up Exclusives Residency on Triple J - think of it as Australia's version of the BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix! Expect big things in 2012.
