Now he’s putting the focus on his solo career as he looks set to make a major impact throughout 2020. As a writer, producer, lead vocalist and multi-instrumentalist, Blume’s wide-ranging talents make him stand out in a sea of identikit producers. Think Calvin Harris and Lauv for a flavour of his world class potential.
Given his talent for creating modernist dance, Blume’s background might come as a surprise. His classical training began as a child when he earned a place at the world-renowned Yehudi Menuhin School. He studied guitar and piano, his education funded via a scholarship set up by The Rolling Stones.
At the age of 15 he won the BBC’s Young Composer of the Year award and a glittering career in the world of classical music seemed to be his destiny. But by that point, Blume was already enamoured by the world of electronic music. Martin Garrix’s ‘Animals’ being the track that rewrote his future.
It’s only a matter of time before his insistent earworms become chart-bound anthems.
