Flume Biography

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 bible Pedestrian.tv and recently picked up a NSFW video clip of teenage adventures picking up late night plays on Australian TV show Rage. The month after his New Navy remix came out triple j picked him as their February Mix Up Exclusives Resident - think of it as Australia's version of the BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix for a month!

Flume's live show is now coming into full effect after selling out 2 national Australian tours and by the end of 2012 Flume would of played prestigious Australian festivals Splendour in the Grass, Parklife and Foreshore as well as a very special event in Sydney called Vivid LIVE at Sydney's most famous venue The Sydney Opera House.

He's still more busy than ever producing - recently releasing an original with Anna Lunoe called 'I Met You', remixes for Hermitude (Elefant Tracks), The Aston Shuffle and Ta-ku as well as putting the finishing touches on his debut album.
