UPDATE (10.3.2015): One of the bright spots heading into this weekend was knowing that Aussie superstar producer and former What So Not co-creater Flume would finally be bringing his talents to the worlds most prolific radio platform, Pete Tong's BBC 1 Essential Mix.
When news of Flume's featured guest mix broke last week, we gushed over the possibility of unreleased contents from a rumored sophomore album being placed throughout and our wish was granted just 10 mins in!
Flume opted to go into DJ mode for the 2-hour mix and piled together a collection of eclectic tunes from future bass, indie-electronic, and hip-hop origins to accompany the unreleased edits and full-bodied singles that bare his signature production prowess.
You can stream Flume's debut below and let's hope to high heavens an official album announcement is imminent! Enjoy
Flume – Essential Mix | Stream
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
The always mysterious ZHU tends to keep us on our toes since his breakout into the world of dance music, and has been more active as of late. Just recently he launched a new website generationwhy.com full of cryptic, Matrix-like text with multiple artist’s names standing out. We see artist names Alunageorge, Skrillex, Bone Thungs N Harmony, A-Trak, Gallant, and more, which leads us to believe he has an EP/album in the works including guest spots from those artists. Now the collaboration with Alunageorge "Automatic" is out in full and sounds even better than we thought as their vocals compliment each other perfectly as ZHU’s signature production shines bright with a slick saxophone closing out the track. Enjoy!

The once mysterious ZHU continues to keep things fresh with his first ever true mix, a very special AfterHours Mix for BBC Radio 1 for taste maker Pete Tong. The is nothing close to normal, chalked full of exclusive unreleased songs, edits and bootlegs, but should we have expected anything less from him?
From doing an amazing cover remix of T Pain's older hit single "Bartender" to his flip of The Weeknd's "Often," not to mention his epic Halloween friendly remix of Michael Jackson's "Thriller" that he debuted in his live shows last year, these tracks only scratch the surface of this truly epic mix. He has not released a track-list for this incredible mix, so you will have to listen to the full thing to hear what other surprises are in store. Listen to the entire mix below. Enjoy!
