Flume : The Age of New Electronic Music


The Electronic music scene is booming at the moment. With new artists and genres, the audiences are exposed to a plethora of new music every day. A fine testament to this is the rise of the Australian electronic music producer Flume.

Discovered at the tender age of 20 by the record label Future Classic, Flume discovered success pretty early in his career when his second album topped the charts in Australia, beating even One direction’s album which was released on the same day.


Steadily rising to be one of the best electronic producer in Australia.

His music has been embraced by the global audience with extreme ardor. The 200 million plays on soundcloud alone corroborates the success of Flume.

Flume describes his music as chilled beats with the occasional banger.

His initial intention was to create music not for the festivals but for people to listen at home, but slowly people have started dancing to it and it has caught on among the regular music festivals. One of his major influences as a producer has been Flying Lotus.

He (Flying Lotus) was the first one that made me realize music didn’t have to be perfectly on time. You can just do weird, and it could work.


Coming of a phenomenal performance from Coachella he recently announced his world tour starting in New Zealand in August and culminating in North America by the end of the year. With his highly anticipated sophomore LP ‘Skin’ dropping on the 26th of May, 2016 will be a huge year for Flume.

Skin has been inspired by Flume’s obsession with technology. The sophomore album has been a result of warped beats and extensive experimentation. With dope collaborations with Vince Staples, Tove Lo, Kai, Beck we are sure that Skin will be off the charts.

It’s using technology in a way that it’s not supposed to be used. That’s what I want to do. There are so many options with a computer, when I get an idea or a technique down then the ideas for a song will develop around that and I will write chords. Every song for me is like a mini-experiment.

Flume has been in our wish list for a very long time. Let’s hope that India’s big festivals could attract this mastermind and reverberate our eardrums with his music this festive season.
