Flume seems to be on a role lately. Not only does he remix some of the coolest songs and make them even cooler (Listen to his rendition of “Tennis Courts” and “You & Me”) but he’s been collaborating with some of the best pop vocalists out right now. His last single “Never Be Like You” featuring Kai, is now everywhere. His latest, “Say It” features the sweet vocals of hippie-pop sensation Tove Lo. As usual, the song builds to a beautiful electronic blow-up that is as mesmerizing as the cover art that goes with it. Lo sings with a punchy whiny-ness that you can’t help but love. “Bite me babe, you make me love the pain, break my bed to make me wanna stay.” The song deals with the unexplainable pull of two people to be together but simply can’t. The lyrics remain passionately beautiful as Flume usually does. There’s a certain magic Flume has that other DJ’s cannot master.

WHO: Flume 

WHERE: Sydney, Australia

GENRE: Electronic

TOP SONGS: “Sleepless feat. Jezzabell Doran”, “Holdin On”, and “Drop the Game feat. Chet Faker”.


The electronic God is back. Flume is known for his insane beats that pulse through your veins. His latest single, “Never Be Like You” (feat. Kai) is pure magic.

Not only are Kai’s soprano vocals angelic, but the production is heavy when necessary and mellow when appropriate. Flume brings life to electronic music through pretty musical tones and edgy lyrics. This isn’t your average song, it has emotional layers to it.

“You” is an apology; “I’m only human can’t you see? I made a mistake, please just look me in my face, tell me everything’s okay.” Kai proceeds to sing, “I’ll never be like you.” Although the lyrics are heartbreaking, the music provides a powerful contrast and somewhat positive glimmer into a brighter future.

Flume throws this song in your face and you can’t help but be completely consumed by it.
