For me, music is more than just art. Music is more of a force, able to stir one's emotions, awaken one's senses, and unite people under a common denominator. It is an essential part to my life.

19-year-old Harley Streten, an Australian who goes by the name Flume, has quite a knack for the creation of sampled and remixed beats. Such talent has to start somewhere I suppose, and for Streten it was a music production program he discovered within the depths of a cereal box....at the age of 13. Why didn't I ever find anything so awesome in Corn Flakes when I was younger? The song that really caught my attention was "Sleepless (ft. Anthony for Cleopatra)", a track off the self-titled single Sleepless, which also includes two other songs "Over You" and "Paper Thin". All of his stuff is very electronica oriented, and while this can sometimes mean a more upbeat or danceable result, Flume is definitely geared toward a more chill environment. The holidays are coming quick and it can be a stressful time for many, so take a breather and throw on some of the songs below. I've posted "Sleepless (ft. Anthony for Cleopatra)" and "Zimbabwe (Flume Remix)". Jump on over to SoundCloud to look at some of his other stuff as well as some downloads. Enjoy!
