The story for artist going simply by Stephen is quite an interesting one. He first released the song "Bullettrain" which gained hundreds of millions of streams online, which led the producer to leave his journey at the University of Miami and re-locate to LA.
We heard his second single a few weeks back with "Remembering Myself" that blurred the lines of indie styled live music with a splash of electronic influence. Today we get the next single from the intriguing producer.
"Fly Down" follows the same pattern stylistically blending various genres for a live instrument fueled song with future bass undertones and an epic climax. This was also written, performed and produced by Stephen, which seems to be the new artists way of doing things.
This is released off the newly formed Halfway House Records, which I'm sure we will hear more about soon. Enjoy!
One of the more mysterious artists out there is undoubtedly ZHU, who seems to embrace ambiguity at any opportunity. This new teaser for ZHU's collaboration with Bone Thugs N Harmony and Trombone Shorty kicks off with the matrix style text saying “This film will self destruct in 60 seconds” then transitions to black and white cartoon imagery reminiscent of James bond or Grand Theft Auto as we see a luxurious home and car with a briefcase and rifle packed in the trunk. ZHU continues to intrigue our interests with every move he makes as this fascinating video has us wondering what he could possbily have in store for us next given his recent collaborations with Alunageorge, Gallant, and A-Trak off his upcoming EP. Stay tuned for more and enjoy!

Flume – Essential Mix 2015-10-03 by Core News Uploads on Mixcloud
One of the longest running wishes amongst the dance music community is for Australian producer Flume to bring his eclectic prowess to the king of all running radio series, Pete Tong's infamous BBC 1 Essential Mix show.
Flume's exciting successes around his breakout, self-titled debut album in 2012 pushed future bass production to the forefront, carving its way into main stage appeal while leading the charge internationally for a whole new generation of Australian producers.
The scarcely spread remixes and recently released original "Some Minds" have caused an internet frenzy everytime! Whispers of late night studio sessions over the last year have fueled the anticipation of a sophomore album, but with nothing official coming from Flume's camp, the upcoming Essential Mix provides a perfect platform for unreleased content to finally see the light of day.
We highly suggest setting a reminder this very instant for Saturday, October 3rd with Flume going in the mix for 2 solid hours of what could potentially be a preview of a forthcoming album! Enjoy]]>
