The alias of electronic musician and producer Harley Edward Streten, Flume makes atmospheric dance music inspired by house and U.K.
garage. 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, he 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 of 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 he toured the U.S. with Disclosure. Four ARIA awards -- including Producer of the Year, Breakthrough Artist, and Best Dance Release -- were handed to him the next month. Three years later he returned with his sophomore set, Skin. ~ Matt Collar, Rovi
