Flume is a master of creating songs where the drop becomes subservient to the experience. Once you've heard it once, you know what's coming, but it doesn't matter either way. When the squiggly chirps rise and boom-bap bass resolve into that anticipatory double hand-clap, it's the collective feeling of a million cheesy grins waiting for what's next.
This Flume remix gives Sam Smith's vocal breathing room to shine, and wrings out its maximum emotional force for the outro, pulling out with the same tremendous stupor he brought in.
After breaking apart as What So Not, Flume has largely kept quiet on the release front. But now with this remix in hand and the last collaborative What So Not tracks being released, he heads off to a number of festival's with power. He'll be performing at Lightning in a Bottle, Sasquatch, Bestival, Bonnaroo and Electric Forest this year among many others.
