Flume

Harley Edward Streten, best known by his stage name “Flume,” is an Australian electronic music instrumentalist, producer, and DJ.  His debut self-titled album was released on November 9, 2012 and peaked at No. 1 on the ARIA Albums Chart and No. 13 in New Zealand.  Flume is best known for his hit single, “Holding On,” which reached the Top 20 on the related ARIA Singles Chart and No. 22 in New Zealand.  The album and his hit single provided Flume with four wins and four nominations at the ARIA Music Awards of 2013.  His wins included Best Male Artist, Breakthrough Artist/Release, Best Dance Release and Producer of the Year.

Flume attributes his first taste for producing at age 13 to the most unlikely of places – a music production program he found in a cereal box.  Flumes influences stem from a variety of sources and often his sound gets distilled into a melodic bass heavy style that’s all his own.  One of his newer tracks, “Sleepless,” is getting significant buzz online with over 700,000 plays on YouTube and more than 120,000 plays on Soundcloud.  This up-and-coming DJ has already achieved a ton of support and affection from his continually growing fan base; who knows what lies in store when he releases his next studio album.

Check out some of Flume’s biggest hits below and keep an eye out for some of his remixes he is continually releasing.
