Australian producer Flume arrived with quite a splash last November with his eponymous album. For a while, you couldn’t find a mix without “Holdin On”. The track was such a breakout, most people overlooked a lot of great tracks from Flume. Namely, the blowout track “Insane” with its poetic lyricism, smooth vocal pitches, and impeccable timing. It’s Crystal Castles meets Apparat.
Thankfully, L D R U is bringing this track back to the limelight in the upcoming release of Flume [Deluxe Edition] on November 12th. Establishing Moon Holiday’s pitch-shifted vocal cut-ups early with a twenty second introduction and refocusing the spacious synths with a harpsichord-like lead and ticking high hats to stitch together the expansive landscape. The cut-ups swim in deep-water reverb, swelling, and the house build near the middle is the perfect change in pace to keep things fresh.
Give it a listen. From the lyrics themselves, “The only risk is that you’ll go insane.”
