Flume is the non do plume of Harley Streten, a young beat-maker from Sydney, Austrailia. 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 his obsession with all things synthetic, and started his addiction for plug-ins, sample packs and vintage analogue hardware. 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. His debut EP Sleepless was soft released in August of 2011 followed by his forward-thinking self-titled full-length in 2012 which maintained a consistent rhythm and heartbeat, part of the reason it was so quickly embraced - to fans it was a world unto itself.
"An LP that's scarily close to perfect. Music that's mass appeal, but with nothing derivative or by-numbers about it." - Rolling Stone Australia
"A solid piece of soulful beat work." - XLR8R
