Pushing the boundaries of creativity is what makes music, music. No matter what genre or embodiment of sound you’re into, this statement will always remain steadfast. And it's a concept Flume has quickly mastered. The Australian producer’s brand of dance music was born and bred to break down barriers, effortlessly amalgamating layers of hip-hop, soul, R&B, and glitch to create stunning tunes that beg you to press repeat.
On Flume’s recent remix of Yolanda Be Cool and Gurrumul, the young producer continues his flourshing progression while successfully dabbling in all new territories. “A Baru In New York” is thoroughly inviting and all together cinematic. The Lion King soundtrack meets bouncy dance vibes, opening each listener’s conscious to something entirely fresh, purely blissful, and unlike anything they’ve heard before. Picasso, Braque, and Basquiat all wrapped into a neat package, Flume is the new king of abstract.
