We should all be familiar with Flume by now. The Australian producer and musician, born Harley Edward Streten, hit the scene in a powerful way with remixes and collaborations with Lorde, Arcade Fire and Sam Smith. His second album, Skin, dropped earlier this year and ignited the critics. His tracks are light but driven, taking the listener through an acid daydream of beauty.
Illenium might not be as known as Flume, but just wait. The Denver based producer has only been on the scene for the last 2 years or so but already has a nice body of work on his turntables. Along with his remixes of artists like the Chainsmokers, Odesza and Dawn Golden, Illenium released his debut album, Ashes, earlier this year and it’s a helluva ride through the sonic mind. He’s currently on tour throughout the U.S. so check his site (illenium.com) for dates near you.
Here’s Illenium’s remix of this year’s latest Flume single, “Say It.” It’s a 4.5 minute track that’s guaranteed to put a smile on your face and give you a moment to yourself. Enjoy euphorically.
