I’ve occasionally heard a back announce of a Flume track
and thought: well that didn’t stand out for me… unless as "busy"
and have not pursued deliberately listening to his stuff.
I’ve picked up Mix Mag the other day with an article praiseworthy of his originality
which I’d normally take as guff
except it gave a bit of background
which is pretty-much boring apart from him being a bodyboarder which resonates with me.
So I’ll have a listen to some of his tunes
but expect to be unimpressed like with Chet Faker, Flight Facilities & the bunch of Aussies
who seem to have gained international recognition lately for what reason I haven’t figured yet.
(this mob excludes Cliques & Epoch whose value is evident but not so commercial)
edit: o yeah, got any tunes you think worth listening to or explanations for why his music is becoming popular?
