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.

Keys N Krates

keys_krates-590x498Here is an awesome new trap/electronic band that has already made some very catchy tracks.

Keys N Krates are a trap/electronica trio fro out of Toronto, Canada.  The trio came together when Adam Tune (drummer), David Matisse (synths/keyboards) and award winning turntablist Jr. Flo joined together in 2008 with a desire to bring their blend of live electronica instrumentation to the stage.

They have often been referred to as the world only “trap band,” which is a title they have reluctantly accepted.  Tune says it best, “At the end of the day, people are going to call us whatever they want.  We are referencing everything from classic house music to Timbaland in our beats, but I think the trap references tap into what the current sound is, and we are ok with that.”

Having extensively toured their unique blend of hip-hop and bass music across North America, Keys N Krates put out a slew of new music during 2013.  Their most recent work, “Solow EP,” was released through Steve Aoki’s Dim Mak Records in September 2013.  The EP includes the hit single, “Treat Me Right” which was created with the help of some of the biggest names in the electronic music industry such as Diplo, Major Lazer, Flosstradamus and TNGHT.  It went to number on on Hype Machine and has continued to chart on the Beatport Hip-Hop Chart.

The second single from the EP, “Dum Dee Dum,” was premiered by Annie Mac on BBC Radio 1.  It has also charted on the Beatport Hip-Hop Charts and has done very well on Hype Machine.  Keys N Krates has also released a remix to “Dum Dee Dum” that includes Cyhi The Prynce, King Louie and Tree rapping on the track.  This remix has received many positive reviews from the likes of Fader Magazine, Vice Mag and Nahright.  “We had so much fun doing that rap remix,” said Flo.  “We can’t wait to work with more rappers and vocalists in general.”

One thing that also separates Keys N Krates from the others is their live musical shows.  They perform everything with only their drums, keys, turntables and live sampling.  Their live shows have helped them to perform at some of the biggest music festivals in the world including Lollapalooza, Electric Zoo, Ultra Music Festival, Osheaga and the Sonar Festival, just to name a few.

If you haven’t heard them yet, check out some of their biggest hits below and keep an eye out for them at your next music festival.  Chances are, they’ll be there.
