Flume is without question one of the most well-known names in electronic music. The Australian producer rose to prominence as a teenager in 2012 with his self-titled debut. The album topped the ARIA charts and took four spots in triple j’s coveted Hottest 100. It set the scene for international stardom, with Flume going on to perform at festivals such as Coachella, Lollapalooza and then returning with his Grammy-winning album SKIN, which featured the hits ‘Never Be Like You’ and ‘Kai’. Flume has continued to dominate charts and festival stages around the world.

In March 2019, Flume shared HI THIS IS FLUME, a 38 minute mixtape and his first music since the widely-acclaimed and globally successful LP, SKIN. The mixtape showcases Flume's talents as a pioneering electronic producer, one admired for exploring and melding complex sounds and making them sound like they've always existed. It's accompanied by a striking visualiser directed by Harley's friend and collaborator, Jonathan Zawada.

His latest song, ‘The Difference’ is a collaboration with Toro Y Moi. Speaking of the release, Flume says: “We made this song between a day at my place in LA and a day at Chaz’s spot in Oakland. This was our first time working together, I’ve been a Toro Y Moi fan for a while. His song ‘Talamak’ is a longtime favourite. I listened to that one a lot when I first started Flume as a project.”

Last week, he dropped a surprise remix of Eiffel 65’s ‘Blue’ – which started as a quarantine Instagram post and evolved to a release after messaging with the original band members during lockdown.

The electronic extraordinaire will share the bill with fellow Australian acts such as Pendulum Trinity, a concept launched in late 2019 by the famed trio Pendulum; and dynamic duo Peking Duk, who made their mark with hits such as ‘High’ and ‘Stranger’ featuring Elliphant. The exciting vocalist and producer George Maple, who has had more than 340 million streams on Spotify, makes her Bay Dreams debut in what promises to be an electrifying performance at both North and South festivals.
