The world of electronic dance music has left its mark in the music industry since 2005 onwards. If you’re one of the people who have enjoyed it to its full extent and raved to its hypnotic sound, then you must be wondering if EDM is still something to patronize despite being less resounding than it was during its starting years.
Questioning the existence of EDM in current music should be abolished as there are still a lot of artists swimming in the fame that this genre has established. If you want to rekindle your love for EDM and wish to redeem your faith in it, then its best for you to stream a budding artist named Flume.
Harley Edward Streten is quite a long name to put on autographs and album covers, so he started using the moniker ‘Flume’ once he entered the business. Born in November 1991, this young yet very capable artist is now spearheading the EDM genre with refreshing takes on remixes and craftsmanship in relaying exciting tunes.
Establishing solid influence in Sydney, Australia, Flume’s focus has been directed into enriching EDM through striking variations such as electronica, downtempo, experimental and trip hop. So far, many music experts have commented that Flume’s bold choice to play within a genre that has been dominated by many makes him one of a kind.
Flume’s ambition into seeking stardom started at an early of 13, when he crafted several remixes recorded in a basic production disc. He used another stage name which is HEDS and his impressive passion to recreate existing tracks enabled him to release two tracks entitled Flow and Fizz.
In 2011, an Australian musical firm was amazed by Flume’s gall in creativity and signed him up as an official artist. Future Classic has never made it easy for Flume to cut his way in as he needed to win a competition first, enabling him to craft songs such as Sleepless, Paper Thin and Over You as contest entries.
The rest is history as they say, and Future Classic aided Flume to release his self-titled debut album in November 2012. Like a flower blossoming, Flume was given huge opportunities to work with some of the industry’s biggest names such as Chet Faker, Moon Holiday, Jezzabell Doran, rapper T-Shirt and George Maple.
The reviews for Flume’s initial release have been mostly favorable, throwing in citations from ARIA and positive notes from Metacritic. In the next couple of months, Flume announced that a sophomore album is well on its way, entitled Skin, and is expected to be released in May or June this year under the same management.
For starters, you can listen to Flume’s tracks such as Drop the Game, Some Minds, Never Be Like You, Smoke and Retribution and Be Like You to be amazed by his creativity.
