SHOW PREVIEW: Flume at Neumos 9/29 By Sara Johnson

August 29, 2013

Flume ( Harley Streten)

Pretty Boy … AKA Flume is an Australian electronic producer whose debut album, ‘Sleepless’, takes you on a dance-party-rollercoaster that combines heavy synths and bassy hip hop beats with vocals ranging from ambient to rap.  He’s done several collaborations with vocalists that go way beyond the typical electronic audience.  Tracks “Holdin’ On” or “Left Alone”  he teams up with Chet Faker amongst a cast of others. Flume himself doesn’t even call this project “electronic”; though he has dubbed his genre “orchestral-crunk-wave”. It is a collection of songs that surprises at every turn, so much so that when listening from beginning to end, it doesn’t exactly make sense but seeing it live, it all starts to make perfect sense and it makes for one helluva sweaty, sold-out show!

Tomorrow he is playing his second sold-out show in Seattle this year, the first being a few months ago at The Lo-Fi. This time around, he is playing bigger venues and has some new edits of unreleased material, as well as the “Infinity Prism” which is apparently an optical illusion that syncs with his music. Check out his promo video for the “Infinity Prism” tour below.(photo by Dani Elshipp)
