LOOK: Flume at Jannus Live – 9.11.16

Flume @ Jannus Live

Almost selling out his whole tour in the US Flume and his shows are making very big impressions in the states. Opening the shows in Miami, St. Petersburg and New Orleans the Australian duo Hermitude (who we interviewed earlier this week) played their first show in St. Pete with Luke Dubs on the keys and El Gusto handling the turntables. They started the night with very strong Australian vibes. Gracing everyone with their own tropical/trap (Trapical) twist on The Tokens “The Lion Sleeps Tonight” and performing their very own hits like “Vibrations”, “The Buzz” and “Ukiyo” the duo gave a phenomenal opening set for Flume who began his set with a build up to the first electrifying track from his most recent album “Skin” to playing old favorites like “On Top” and “Holdin On”. To his most popular tracks like “Never be like you” and “Say it” also including remixes of Lorde’s “Tennis Courts” and openers Hermitude’s “Hyper Paradise”. The whole set ended up being a pretty surreal journey of Flumes music. You’re not just watching a guy press play on a laptop and be a hype man. Flume has a way with enticing the crowd, causing a spectacle of feels with his very intricate light production and sounds. His creative flair shouldn’t be underestimated. I wouldn’t even call him an EDM artist. Flume is just Flume.
