Sydney-based Harley Streten, aka 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 of his own.
As a teenager he won a competition held by Future Classic and subsequently signed with the label to release a 2011 EP featuring the track “Sleepless.”
The following year, Flume delivered his debut self-titled solo album. In his homeland, it topped the ARIA album chart and went double platinum; in the U.S. it was issued on the Mom + Pop label.
His 2016 sophomore set, “Skin,” featured collaborations with AlunaGeorge, Little Dragon, Vic Mensa, and Beck. The single “Never Be Like You” featuring Kai was a worldwide hit, along with “Say It” featuring Tove Lo. The album won several awards, most notably the 2016 ARIA Awards for Album of the Year, Best Dance Release, and Best Independent Release, as well as the 2017 Grammy Award for Best Dance/Electronic Album.
