Music Monday: Flume


We all have heard of Skrillex, Zedd, Tiesto, Steve Aoki, and/or Calvin Harris. If you haven't, you've probably lived under a rock all your life or have never turned on the radio. Flume is a also a DJ, but this 23 year old Australian is not your typical DJ. I wouldn't even classify them under the same category as DJs. Some have classified his music as trippy pop, experimental, and electronica, but I've just classified it under "the songs you need to listen to in order to get shit done". He's become close friends with Lorde and has taken a spin on her hit single Tennis Court, which I personally prefer over the original. You'll be seeing a lot of him this year (FINALLY) I'm sure, as he's going to be one of the headliners at Bonnaroo, and Lollapalooza. How's that for making a first impression? Give a listen to Hermitude - HyperParadise (Flume remix) if I haven't convinced you enough and my all time favorite track by Flume - Sleepless ft.
