Last week Australian electronic producer Flume, or the golden boy as I like to refer to him, released a new track from his Skin LP, titled Wall Fuck. The perhaps a little jarring title accurately reflects the sudden bouncing around from soaring layered vocals to hard hitting trap drums. However all these little pieces weave together beautifully in the end. I’ll be honest, the first couple times I listened to it I wasn’t a fan, but the more I listened to it the more I loved it.
Flume’s Skin LP drops May 27.
Swelo is a math teacher. Yeah that’s right. But he also makes damn cool music. I was hooked on the album he released last year, titled Escalator Music, and today he released a cover of one of my favourite bands, Portugal. The Man’s ‘People Say’. Usually I have a tough time with covers because I inevitably compare the two and the cover has to be as good if not better than the original for me to enjoy it. On this track Swelo absolutely nails it, adding his own electronic, groovy flavour to the song. Enjoy!

Goddess is the title track from Chrome Sparks’s forthcoming EP. It is a really broad, vast track, creating a diverse and incredible soundscape as you listen. After a gradual buildup, the song climaxes, with a multitude of funky rhythms bouncing off each other like fireflies dancing in the night, while the glorious melody just absolutely sings on top. Eventually the track slowly dims down, back to nothingness, which is when I press play, to feel the journey all over again.
