Flume dazzled fans and critics alike last week by breaking his one-and-a-half-year hiatus with the release of a 17-track mixtape, Hi This Is Flume. By the looks of things, that was only the beginning. After teasing that more new music was on the way, he's made good on his promise by delivering a single titled "Friends" featuring Reo Cragun.
Keeping with the experimental creative tangent which yielded last week's effort, "Friends" pairs emotive vocals with unconventional sound design elements. Flume (real name Harley Edward Streten) allows Cragun's verses to take center stage in the arrangement without leaving it devoid of his own innovative signature sound.
Streten's R&B-inspired style of electronic music played no small role in the emergence of the future bass genre. He released his self-titled debut album in 2012 and followed it up with a sophomore effort titled Skin in 2016.
