I'm going to go a bit different and do a full out artist instead of just a song. I originally heard about Flume from the Get Up on This podcast. They played his song 'Sleepless' and I really loved the vibe. Flume is an Australian DJ that incorporates Hip Hop inspired beats with Trance-y cuts. Normally, I actually quite dislike most of the slower paced DJ's as I find they're made exclusively for people on drugs. With Flume, however, I feel that he has a signature sound that doesn't overdo the drug-trip feel that I tend to lump DJ's like him into.
I loved his album so much that I immediately paid for it on itunes and never regretted it once. His self-titled album is near perfect and was a huge inspiration for me when writing my comic 'Son of God'. It's hard to pick and choose my favourite songs from him, but I've put a small list of songs below that can give a good tasting of his work.
- Flume (ft. Jezzabell Doran) - Sleepless
- Disclosure - You and Me (Flume Remix)
- Flume (ft T Shirt) - On Top
- Flume - Holdin On
Special mention goes to Flume's song 'Insane' which was my main fuel for my comic. If you are to listen to it, pop on some headphones and turn up the song, and listen all the way through. It's an experience.
