Yesterday afternoon, Flume took time to praise the unique sound of the Australian Electronic music scene on Facebook.
“Just wanted to say how proud I am to be a part of Australian Electronic music scene right now, and its not just me. I’ve been travelling the world for the past 6 months and I’m constantly getting asked in interviews about the “Australian sound” and this new wave of producers.
I never thought much of it, being part of this new wave and all, but after this trip to the USA I’m starting to see it from an outsiders perspective. Australia, we’ve got something pretty special going on here, we’ve got our own sound, and the worlds starting to take notice.”
To back up his statement, the producer highlighted a few artists that he feels are pretty exceptional and included a song recommendation for each. He especially emphasized “big dogs” Chet Faker and Ta-Ku. Acknowledging the list as incomplete, he invited fans to share their favorites in the comment section and spread the word to their friends.
“I say we take over like the French did with Electro back in 06.”
