Flume is the stage name of Australian electronic music producer Harley Edward Streten. First discovered and signed in 2011 through an original artists competition managed by Australian record company Future Classic. He went on to release his first EP titled ‘Sleepless’ which featured his competition winning tracks with the help of Nathan McLay, founder of Future Classic and now Flume's manager. The moniker ‘Flume’ was chosen after the Bon Iver song of the same name.

‘Skin’ is the highly anticipated second album following his break out 2012 debut. Featuring hit single "Never Be Like You" with Kai and "Say It" featuring Tove Lo. Additional guests on ‘Skin’ includes Vic Mensa, Kučka, Tove Lo, Vince Staples, Allan Kingdom, Raekwon, Little Dragon, Aluna George, MNDR and Beck.

 

"Move over Calvin Harris: Harley Edward Streten is set to claim the EDM throne…. Gearing up to be the next EDM crossover talent, Flume’s sophomore effort, Skin, showcases a producer at ease with all of the sounds moving tickets at America’s major festival events: hip-hop, indie pop, and EDM.

The incendiary tempo of “Smoke & Retribution” (featuring Vince Staples & Kučka) and the downtempo garage of “Innocence” (with an appearance from AlunaGeorge) attest to Streten’s malleable production tactics. He maximizes the strengths of his guests without diminishing his own abilities. Also featuring the likes of Vic Mensa (“Lose It”), Raekwon (“You Know”), and Little Dragon (“Take A Chance”), Skin’s intent is to appeal to a large, eclectic base. However, the sterling, Kai-featuring “Never Be Like You” is proof that Streten can generate massive hits no matter how well established his studio partners may be. ...

Closing out the album with Beck on “Tiny Cities”, Streten offers a professional hat-tip to a producer/multi-instrumentalist that regularly re-invented his own artistic rules, and more broadly, the rules of alternative rock music. As Flume, Streten is on a similarly earnest mission to push the acceptable, tasteful boundaries of EDM and pop." - Consequence of Sound
