Flume's Throwaway Collection is Better Than Most Artists' Albums
What can be said about Flume’s music that hasn’t already been said? The man’s a genius with an incredible sound that caused edm trap artists to ditch imitating RL Grime (for a little while).
With this new collection of throwaways, I’m reminded again why I love him. The appropriately named “Dream 1.2.2 [2016 Export Wav],” took me to a different dimension, a dream. (sidenote: love how he named all of these tracks. It really drives home the fact that these were just chilling on his hard drive.)
The ping-ponging tones support a moaning-like voice that sounds more like a desperate plea. Along with those dreamy, ethereal synths that lead into a swelling finale, I don’t how anybody can hear this song and not take a moment to reflect on it. Although I admit not everybody will find it as moving as I do, I personally can’t stop listening to it. It’s experimentally meditative, and I can’t get enough of it.
