There’s no denying that Flume had a phenomenal run in 2016. The Australian producer dropped one of the year’s most impactful records with Skin (which wound up on our list of the ten best EDM albums of 2016), followed up by a solid companion EP and a number of impressive festival appearances.
Flume is getting the year off to a strong start as he takes to Instagram this week to drop a teaser of some new music. In the brief clip, we can hear upbeat rhythms, deep bass tones and a soaring synth melody before the video cuts out abruptly. The whole preview is only a few seconds long, but it’s still enough to get the blood pumping for a number of fans.
The influential musician has previously stated that he already knows what direction his next album will take, revealing that now that his vocal record is out of the way he intends to focus on sample based music, as well as collaborating with other producers. Considering the lengthy delay between the release of Flume‘s first and second LP, we have little expectation of a full blown effort in 2017, but the teaser bodes well that we may get some new material later on in the year.
