Hot off the heels of his new four track Skin Companion EP, Flume is back on our minds thanks to a new stint on Triple J’s Like A Version series. During the program, the future bass producer offered up two live performances, playing his single “Never Be Like You” from Skin and delivering a cover of the R&B classic “My Boo” by Ghost Town DJs.
Starting with “Never Be Like You,” Flume offers up a stripped down rendition, sung by Kai with backup vocalists Kučka, Vera Blue and Ngaiire. As the song’s familiar vocal hooks echo through the speakers, we can hear the Australian producer unleashing waves of ethereal synths for a drums free version of “Never Be Like You.”
For his cover of Ghost Town DJs’ “My Boo,” Flume dishes up his signature brand of clanking rhythms set against synth chord flourishes, with rapper Vince Staples taking over the lead vocal duties, backed by Vera Blue, Ngaiire and Kučka.
The performances offer up a different side to Flume than we get on his productions, and fans will be pleased to hear the alternate version of “Never Be Like You,” while the cover of “My Boo” is a fitting rework from the Aussie music maker.
