Celebrated Sydney-born, LA-based producer Flume has been nominated for Best Dance/Electronic Album for his critically acclaimed Hi This Is Flume mixtape at the 62ndAnnual Grammy Awards.
This nomination caps off a monumental year for Flume who released Hi This Is Flume, a 38-minute mixtape along with a striking visualizer directed by Harley’s friend and collaborator Jonathan Zawada, this past March. Having just concluded a very special European headline run with a set at Manchester’s Mayfield Depot, Flume toured the continent and globe with stops at festivals including Lollapalooza, Osheaga, Outside Lands, Japan’s Summersonic, Italy’s C2C and more. Flume is set to make his Ultra Miami debut as one of the festival’s headline acts, which will be held March 20-22, 2020. Additionally, Flume recently launched a new line of merchandise that can be purchased here.
Just last week Flume debuted the video for his latest single “Rushing Back” featuring Vera Blue, directed by longtime collaborator Jonathan Zawada—watch here. The track is his biggest launch of 2018, debuting at #12 on the U.S. Dance/Electronic chart and streamed more than 18 million times to date. The pair debuted the song, also featured on the FIFA 2020soundtrack, with live performances at Lollapalooza and Australia’s Listen Out festivals this summer.
“Rushing Back” follows the release of “Let You Know” feat. London Grammar, Quits, a collaborative EP with rapper Reo Cragun, as well as the now Grammy nominated and much-lauded Hi This Is Flume mixtape and visualizer released earlier this year.
Recent critical praise:
“[On ‘Rushing Back’], the two drum up a contagious chemistry, as Vera Blue’s featherweight voice swiftly floats above, below, and around Flume’s warping, bent production.
It’s almost as though they’ve imagined the feeling of ‘rushing back,’
but in audio form.”—Consequence of Sound
“Hi This Is Flume (Mixtape) is a reinvigorating work of electronic music.”—Mother Jones
“Every track [is] daring, distinct and worthy of a spin.”—Cool Hunting
“Simply genius.”—This Song Is Sick
Flume (born Harley Streten) rose to prominence as a teenager with his scene-starting self-titled debut in 2012. Featuring the hits “Holding On,” “On Top,” “Sleepless” and others, the album topped the ARIA charts, garnered four spots in triple j’s Hottest 100 and sold out a massive Australian 40,000 cap tour. In the two years that followed, Flume established a name as a serious international contender thanks to his compelling live show (debuting at Coachella, Lollapalooza and many others) and skillful remixes of high-profile acts including Lorde and Disclosure.
After a series of well-received collaborations (Lockjaw EP with Chet Faker  and Some Minds with Andrew Wyatt ), Flume released his second LP, Skin. Launching with the blockbuster hit “Never Be Like You” featuring Kai, and topping the ARIA Chart on release, the album reinforced Flume’s status as an inventive, boundary-pushing producer while simultaneously reaching huge new audiences around the world. That year, Flume topped triple j’s Hottest 100, won seven ARIAs, an APRA Award for Songwriter of the Year and sold over 300,000 tickets globally across a sold out 59 date world tour. He achieved platinum accreditation in multiple territories around the world and took home his first Grammy Award for Best/Dance Electronic Album.
