"It was a crazy journey," says Flume -- aka 25-year old Australian producer Harley Streten -- of his 2012 self-titled debut's international success. "I was just some quiet kid in high-school and all of a sudden I got dropped into the deep end. Physically and mentally. It was a huge shock to the system."
"Shock" plays a significant role on Flume's often-outrageous second album, 'Skin.' Released in May 2016, the musician's wildly eclectic follow-up is a meticulously crafted, vivid universe of big emotions woven into a densely cinematic whole. With good reason -- its creation mirrors the complex rush of sensations that came with sudden success.
"It used to be just writing for myself but now there is an audience," says Streten. A sizeable one. Beyond millions of listeners and his own sold-out shows, Flume's live show has become a major draw at international festivals, including Coachella, Reading, Leeds, Pukkelpop, Bonnaroo, and drawing 40,000 to his slot at Rock en Seine in Paris. "I wanted to keep the next album at a certain high energy," says Streten of the writing process behind 'Skin.' "That definitely influenced the new stuff a lot."
Recorded in hotel rooms, aeroplanes, trains, taxis, and tour vans, and in locations as far-flung as LAX airport, a shack on the west coast of Mexico, a log cabin in rural Tasmania, a bus rattling towards Vegas, as well as studios in LA, New York, and his hometown of Sydney, 'Skin' is "a grand expedition in trying to capture the biggest, most epic, powerful moments," says the producer. "It's the hi-fi version of my sound. I needed to do something bold."
After slowly beginning work on 'Skin' as far back as late 2013, Streten's breakthrough came in mid-2015 when he shifted to LA for three months of solid work. Then, stuck on what would become the clattering standout,
"Numb and Getting Colder," he crushed together three completely different songs. It was a lightbulb moment. "I thought, cool this sounds like it's from the future'" says Streten. "I hadn't heard anything quite like that. I thought, this is how the album's going to sound. I want it to sound like the future."
That inclination to push himself has been handsomely rewarded. Announcing announcing headline shows to celebrate the release of 'Skin' in May, Flume sold out all 300,000 tickets of his world headline tour, including more than 80,000 headline tickets in Australia alone. His stretch through the US included closing the outdoor stage at Coachella 2016; drawing 70,000 to his Lollapalooza slot; multiple sold out nights at The Shrine in LA, the Bill Graham Civic in San Francisco, and iconic sell-outs at Red Rocks CO and Forest Hills NYC.
Lead track "Never Be Like You," featuring Canadian singer Kai, was a Top 10 Radio Single in the US where it also went Platinum. The track has been certified four times platinum in Australia, and to date has clocked a staggering 257 million plays on Spotify. Third single, "Say It," featuring Tove Lo, is close behind, having reached 146 million plays on Spotify, and gone three times Platinum in Australia.
Europe has shown similar love for Flume and 'Skin.' Post-release highlights include playing BBC Radio 1 Big Weekender and a BBC Live Session with Annie Mac; selling out Alexandra Palace in London; and "Never Be Like You" going Gold in Italy.
His homeland has long held special a place for the Sydney native. In Australia 'Skin' debuted at #1 on the ARIA charts and has been certified Gold; in July Flume headlined Streten's spiritual home, the Splendour in the Grass festival, and at the artisan awards for the 2016 ARIAs, Streten was awarded Producer Of The Year, Engineer Of The Year (alongside Eric J Dubowsky) and the album's artwork by friend and collaborator, Jonathan Zawada, won Best Cover Art.
Despite 'Skin' featuring an incredible array of guest vocalists -- including Beck, Tove Lo, Little Dragon's Yukimi Nagano, MNDR, AlunaGeorge, Australian newcomer Ku?ka, Canadian MC Allan Kingdom, US rappers Vince Staples, Vic Mensa, and Raekwon of Wu-Tang fame, and Kai -- Stretan's meticulous sonic creation proves a hard-won and profoundly personal victory.
"The point of being an artist is to be yourself," says Streten. "Not to please people but to make stuff that doesn't exist. Following my instincts is what got me to this point. I want to make things that sound like nothing else out there."
After playing music for most of his childhood—including taking up trumpet in sixth grade as well as mastering guitar and piano—Reo Cragun headed off to Washington State University with hopes of becoming a doctor. But when his grandmother died unexpectedly, Reo had a change of heart that led him to drop out of school, give up his full scholarship, and dedicate himself to making music. “I had my whole life mapped out for myself, everything was all in order,” says Reo, who grew up in Vancouver, Washington. “But after my grandma passed, I realized I didn’t want to live like that. When I dropped out I had no idea how I was going to get anywhere with music, but I did it anyway. It was really scary but also the best thing I’ve ever done.” Less than two years after leaving college was all in order,” says Reo, who grew up in Vancouver, Washington. “But after my grandma passed, I realized I didn’t want to live like that. When I dropped out I had no idea how I was going to get anywhere with music, but I did it anyway. It was really scary but also the best thing I’ve ever done.” Less than two years after leaving college, Reo delivered his breakthrough single “Inconsiderate”—a summer 2016 release hailed by Pigeons & Planes as a “heavy-lidded alternative R&B track” that “takes all of his frustrations and puts it into somber lyrics over head-nodding drums.” With “Inconsiderate” amassing over 9 million streams on Spotify, the 23-year-old artist/songwriter/producer made his Capitol Records debut with a moody yet melodic mixtape called Growing Pains. “Most of the songs are about all the changes I’ve gone through over the past couple years, which has been a huge period of evolution in my life,” says Reo, who’s now based in Los Angeles. “They’re about the pain that comes with those changes, but also about recognizing the fact that you’ve got to go through that pain.” Reo created much of Growing Pains at home in his living room, working with fellow producers Apollo 7Ven and Onassis Morris and purposely sticking to a stripped-down, instinct-driven approach. “The mixtape’s mostly just me and two of my close friends making all this music and keeping it completely organic,” says Reo. “We pretty much did everything from scratch, with hardly any samples. It was important to me to create something that really represents who I am.” On lead single “Night Crawler,” Reo opens Growing Pains with a darkly thrilling track whose woozy melody and eerie effects perfectly capture the isolation of the creative process. Atmospheric and quietly intense, “On My Way” matches its warped grooves with Reo’s reflections on restless determination. “That song is the story of why I came out to L.A,” he says. “It’s about not being content with where you are, and feeling some kind of hunger to really live.” And on “The Feels”—which Reo describes as “mostly a love story, just me being a softie”—hazy synth lines and hypnotic rhythms blend together in a brilliant backdrop to Reo’s shapeshifting vocal work. Although his family isn’t musically inclined, Reo discovered a love for music at an early age and picked up various instruments throughout his first years of elementary school. “It was mostly just a hobby back then, where I’d play Beatles or Jimi Hendrix or Linkin Park covers on guitar,” he says. With his sights set on a career in medicine, Reo later put music aside and entered an accelerated academic program that included completing two years of college-level study while still in high school. It wasn’t until he’d dropped out of Washington State—after a year of studying biology—that he made his first attempt at songwriting. “I barely knew how to make a song when I first started, so I was mostly just going off of pure creativity,” says Reo. As he worked on honing his songcraft, he simultaneously taught himself production and soon started recording on his own. Drawing from an eclectic musical palette—“I grew up listening to Green Day and Linkin Park, but I also grew up on 50 Cent”—Reo also brought a decidedly indie sensibility to his songwriting. “To me indie music is like a thousand-piece puzzle,” he says. “The lyrics can have a multitude of meanings to them, and it takes some time and some thought to put it all together.” As he began posting his songs online, Reo made ends meet by working at a local Costco—a gig that inadvertently inspired his move to California. “I remember I was pushing carts one day and I just said to myself, ‘In six months, I’m getting out of here and going to L.A.,’” he recalls. That same day, thanks to a connection from a musical collaborator in nearby Portland, he ended up crossing paths with manager Deon Ford. After hearing a clip that Reo Cragun had recorded the night before, Deon instantly understood the potential. A session was set up for later that same day. “You’re moving to LA,” said Deon Ford. “You’ll be a star.”Reo Cragun came to LA for glimpse of the situation, worked with a few big names, and then quit his job to begin his music journey. His music’s thematics are influenced largely by his father’s incarceration, citing Eminem’s Curtain Call as a major impact owing to the way Eminem speaks about his daughter, establishing a bond between artist and listener that Reo felt profoundly, as if the rapper were a distant father figure capable of producing the fathers’ love that Reo lacked at the time. Similarly, he used 50 Cent’s Get Rich or Die Tryin’ to feel a connection to his father. Reo is excited to launch his music career, one he builds on the comprehension of his emotions and the moments that have led to this precipice. He creates his music from a place of authenticity, whether it’s a melody, a beat or lyrics - there’s no routine, only the creativity of the present moment. Soon after moving to L.A., Reo landed a record deal with 10k Projects via D2 Entertainment and released “Inconsiderate” to heavy acclaim. That buzz quickly led to his collaboration with With the follow-up release of “Peso” in March, Reo scored over a million streams and earned praise from the likes of Earmilk, who noted his “captivating production” and a lyrical candor that “dives deep into a discussion about his personal drive and journey with music.” For Reo, that deeply personal element is essential to all of his musical output. Pointing out that his most admired musicians are “the ones who are fearless about saying what’s on their minds,” he ultimately hopes to create songs that connect on the most intimate level. “Even if it’s really personal stuff about problems that I’m going through, it’s important for me to put it all out there,” says Reo. “I want to write songs that make people feel accepted and know that they’re not alone in the world. I want them to hear the things that I needed to hear when I was a kid.”His best work is in front of him! Now releasing independently via D2 Entertainment and remains with his long time management moving forth
