Flume sat down with Zane Lowe on Beats 1 to dish on past collaborations, life before and after Future Classic, and the two documentaries recently released on him, When Everything Was New and Sleepless: The Story Of Future Classic, both of which are now available via Apple Music.

Out on Future Classic, Australian songwriter and producer Hayden James‘ new single, “Just Friends” which features Boy Matthews, is artfully crafted and undeniably catchy. On the new tune, thumping bass drives Matthews’ croons, with plucky guitar elements and R&B sensibilities amalgamating in harmonious union.
James is no stranger to creating masterful hits; “Just Friends” follows his ARIA Platinu..
He’s only “Human,” but as the long awaited arrival for the EP of the same name further exemplifies, there’s something special about Steve Angello.
Duly an abstract and conceptual production, Human delivers 21 new tracks to Angello’s listeners, and given both the album’s expanse and the meticulous crafting of each individual song that appears thereon, it’s no wonder that Human materializes as a re..

MK doubles down minute wise on his house oriented take of the track that originally appeared on Smith’s 2017 album, The Thrill Of It All. Exten..

Duke & Jones may not be a household name yet, but the Manchester-born DJ duo are on the rise — and climbing fast. But just as they really start to take off, the pair are slowing it down for a moment, dropping off a heavy new trap product called “Breathe.” The track is a clamorous slow burn, stacking multiple layers and sample cuts into a knocking set list weapon that could level a dance floor, rem..
