music news 12/03/2020

After dropping drum and bass collab 'The Difference' with Toro Y Moi this morning, Flume has confirmed an album is on the way.

In an interview with Zane Lowe, the Aussie producer chatted about drawing inspiration from Toro Y Moi - real name Chaz Bundick - and collaborating with Apple for an AirPods Pro spot, as well as dropping the big news that he's going to put out a record this year.

“Yeah, we'll put out a record this year," he said. "I mean, I'm just working away. I'm trying to do a beat a day, or two ideas a day. I kind of got the blinders on, head down.

"Hopefully put a record out this year. What I'm trying to do is have fun with music. I think sometimes I take it too seriously.

"And now I'm just having fun and making whatever comes to mind. And it's, uh, it's been really satisfying. And I'm feeling good creatively. So yeah, hopefully I'll have plenty more to share this year.”

On working with Toro Y Moi, he said "He just came over. Um, we messed around on the synths. We'd never done music before, but, uh, it was the first time working together. And it just went incredibly well, and he's such a pleasure to work with. Honestly, there wasn't too much to it. We just messed around, and this is what happened. He's a super creative guy."

"When I started this Flume Project, One of his tracks called 'Talamak,' which I think came out in about 2011 or something, was kind of one of the blueprint songs for this project."
