FLUME – SMOKE AND RETRIBUTION (Electro/HipHop – Australia)

Flume

Aussie artist/producer Flume has shared a mind-blowing new tune taken off his soon-to-be-released sophomore album Skin. The song is called “Smoke & Retribution” and it features American Rapper Vince Staples and Perth-based vocalist Kučka.

This new track marks a drastic change of direction for the young artist whose 2013 debut album revolved around downtempo electro beats and pop-influenced hooks. Bolder and sharper, “Smoke and Retribution” shows yet another new side of Flume’s creative self. Over the years, he has managed to broaden his musical horizons through numerous side projects: What So Not (with friend Emoh Instead), Anna Lunoe & Flume, Flume & Chet Faker

MARCUS MARR & CHET FAKER – WORK EP (Electronica – Australia)

Marcus Marr & Chet Faker

Australian neo-soul singer Chet Faker and South London DJ-producer Marcus Marr have teamed up on a new collaborative EP released last December on Chet Faker’s own label Detail Records.

The four-song EP is the product of a very fruitful four-day recording session in London. Pairing the soulful vocals of Nick Murphy (aka Faker) with Marr’s funky bass lines and futuristic soundscapes, singles “The Trouble With Us” and “Birthday Card” are two fun-filled cheeky tunes that merge edgy dance and pop-infused R&B.


The new EP is billed as the first official Chet Faker release since his hugely successful debut album, Built On Glass, but the Aussie wunderkind is currently hard at work on the follow-up album at his new studio HQ in Brooklyn.
