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. Taking a no-holds-barred attitude to music creation, Flume takes inspiration from a wide variety of sources and scenes distilling his sound into a melodic bass heavy style that is uniquely his own. Flume is one of the first generation who doesn’t know life before the internet and perhaps this explains his global appeal. Praise has come from the likes of The Guardian, Clash, i-D, the Line of Best Fit and FACT Mag in the UK while across the pond, Pitchfork, Fader, XLRR and the New York Times have all marked Flume as one to watch. He is equally popular in his native Australia with across the board support from national alternative broadcaster triple j and taste-making community stations and blogs. His debut EP ‘Sleepless’ was soft released in August 2011 and has been #1 on the iTunes Australia Electronic Chart for several weeks and in the top 10 for several months. Flume released his self-titled debut (via Future Classic) in his native Australia in November 2012, where it shot straight to #2 on the ARIA Album Chart (beaten only by a band called ‘One Direction’) and – remarkably - spent most of his debut week on top of the iTunes album chart. It has been in the iTunes Top 10 since its release and has been uniformly praised. Flume’s production ability is matched by his live show, which has come into full effect after touring with the xx, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs and Chet Faker as well as numerous Australian festival performances (including Parklife, Splendour in the Grass), a couple of sold-out Australian tours and no less than 8 acclaimed showcases at this year’s CMJ conference.
