If you’re digging Flume’s album, check out these Aussie producers too…
Today finally sees the release of the highly anticipated album from Sydney’s Flume; aka Harley Streten. The past 12 months have seen this 21 year old go from struggling to land a gig, to being on every festival line up going. How has he done it? A refined mix of talent, personality (and looks) and a stellar label to back him; Future Classic is nearly 10 years old and is arguably Oz’s finest label. Harley’s success is accountable to a very specific skill; his ability to create sounds which appeal to both national radio audiences, and the more discerning listener. While the latter may tire more quickly of the album, their appreciation is undeniable. For the moment, he is everyone’s favourite, and he deserves it. But as his album cooks up a slew of smoking hot reviews, don’t forget there are many other Aussie electronic producers worthy of your ears.
