Flume

The alias of electronic musician and producer Harley Edward Streten, Flume makes atmospheric dance music inspired by house and U.K. garage. Recruiting collaborators from across genres, he rose into the main-stage ranks with his 2012 debut and his Grammy-winning 2016 sophomore effort, Skin, both of which topped the album chart in his native Australia. Flume maintained a presence on the Australian singles and U.S. dance charts with hit collaborations with London Grammar ("Let You Know"), Vera Blue ("Rushing Back"), and Toro y Moi ("The Difference") before returning with his third long-player, 2022's Palaces, which included the Aussie Top 20 hit "Say Nothing" featuring May-A. He rounded up previously unreleased tracks on the 2023 mixtape Things Don't Always Go the Way You Plan. Born in Australia, Streten began producing his own music in his early teens. Several years later, 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, which featured guest appearances from Chet Faker, Jezzabell Doran, and Moon Holiday, among others. 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. A deluxe edition of the debut followed in November 2013 with cred-enhancing contributions from Ghostface Killah, Boldy James, M.O.P., and Killer Mike. The same month, he released his and Faker's collaborative Lockjaw EP and toured the U.S. with Disclosure. Several ARIA Awards -- including Producer of the Year, Breakthrough Artist, and Best Dance Release -- were handed to him the next month. Streten spent the next couple of years touring and released the single "Some Minds," a collaboration with Miike Snow's Andrew Wyatt, in 2015. 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. Skin returned him to the top of the album chart in Australia, and this time he not only landed on the U.S. Billboard 200 but reached number eight. Later that year, Flume released the Skin Companion I and Skin Companion II EPs, which included contributions by Isabella Manfredi and Pusha T, respectively. Skin also 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. He returned in early 2019 with the mixtape Hi This Is Flume. Featuring appearances by HWLS, slowthai, JPEGMAFIA, and SOPHIE, the atmospheric set earned Flume his third Grammy nomination, for Best Dance/Electronic Album. Meanwhile, he had a Top 40 single in Australia with the London Grammar collaboration "Let You Know" in June of 2019. Quits, a split EP with Reo Cragun, then appeared in August, followed a month later by the single "Rushing Back," which featured Vera Blue. "Rushing Back" reached number eight on Australia's singles chart and returned him to the Billboard dance/electronic Top 20. He enjoyed similar chart placements with the Toro y Moi collaboration "The Difference" in early 2020 and with "Say Nothing" featuring May-A in early 2022. The latter track was the lead single from Flume's third full-length release, May 2022's Palaces, which also included collaborations with the likes of Damon Albarn and Caroline Polachek. Things Don't Always Go the Way You Plan, a mixtape containing tracks recorded between 2012 and 2021, appeared in 2023 and included collaborations with Panda Bear, Injury Reserve, and Isabella Manfredi.
