Australia imprint Future Classic has EDM culture gold on their hands with Flume. The 21-year-old producer killed CMJ this year, recently sold out his first-ever show in the UK (had to move to a larger venue), held top spot on the Australian dance charts, as well as hit #1 on iTunes beating the likes of One Direction and Pink and played a gaggle of festivals in his homeland. So yea, 2012 was a good year and we imagine 2013 will be a lot of the same (read strength to strength) with the release of his album on February 19 (was released November 9 via Future Classic), playing another round of shows at SXSW (why no WMC?) and pretty much just taking his sound to a larger audience.
