KWXY Presents the Music of Flume

Flume is an Australian musician, DJ, record producer and a pioneer of future bass, a style of electronic
dance music popularized in the 2010s. He has released three studio albums to date and has won major
music awards in Australia and abroad. His stage name comes from a song of the same name by indie
folk band, Bon Iver.

He was born Harley Edward Streten on November 5, 1991 in Sydney, New South Wales to parents Glen
and Lyndall. At age eleven, using a Windows-based music program packaged in a box of breakfast
cereal, he was able to teach himself basic music mixing and DJ skills. He began producing house music
and remixes in 2010 as “HEDS,” his initials. His first airplay was “Possum,” a song uploaded to the
government-funded radio station, Triple J Unearthed. In 2011, Flume was signed to independent record
label Future Classic. His self-titled debut album, released in 2012, was done on the first laptop he’d ever
purchased. It debuted on the Australian charts at number two. The album was released in North
America on the Mom + Pop Music label in early 2013 to critical acclaim. Flume began an Australian tour
in 2013 and a world tour in 2014.


Skin, his second studio album, was released in May 2016. Its first single, “Never Be Like You,” became
Flume’s first chart-topping hit and went on to be voted the number one song in the Triple J Hottest 100
of 2016. Featuring sixteen tracks with a one-hour runtime, the album received even more critical
acclaim, winning the Best Dance/Electronic Album at the 2017 Grammys. The album spawned a
successful EP, Skin Companion EP 2 in 2017.


2019 brought with it his first solo project since 2017. Hi This Is Flume is a thirty-eight-minute-long
mixtape featuring collaborations with such notable artists as British rapper Slowthai, American rapper
JPEGMafia and Scottish singer/musician Sophie. The mixtape was nominated for a second Best
Dance/Electronic Album Grammy in 2020. His third studio album, Palaces, is scheduled for release in
May 2022 on Future Classic.


Flume is scheduled to perform at the 2022 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival on Friday April 16th
and Friday April 23 rd . KWXY Music Radio supports musicians and artists performing in the Coachella
Valley, as well as independent music labels, and emerging talent all over the country.
