Hear Flume's Favorite New Hip-Hop Songs On New Guest Mix

Flume Hip-Hop Mix

Flume has done it again. He’s always ahead of the curve with everything he does whether it’s his own productions, his collaborations or even the playlists he curates. For his latest offer he’s shared a hip-hop guest mix for Future Classic via Apple and includes some of our favorite new artists. 

Flume has stayed busy since the release of his sophomore album Skin saying he’s been working on new music and now shows off his taste making. Flume definitely keeps his ear to the ground as he included almost entirely new artists, some of which are our favorite rising rappers. 

In the mix he has BROCKHAMPTON who have been on a hot streak lately dropping not one, but two of our favorite hip-hop albums of the year and secured their own VICELAND show called American Boyfriend. He also includes Trippie Redd’s singles “Love Scars” and "Romeo & Juliet" that we can’t get enough of. We had the pleasure of premiering one of Reo Cragun’s first tracks and is undoubtedly a star in the making. Also included are a couple tracks from Buddy who has been on a hot streak this year working with artists like Kaytrandada. Each artist he highlights is worth checking out so spend some time with this playlist if you're looking for new rappers to listen to. Listen below and enjoy!


Listen To Vince Staples New 'Big Fish Theory' Album Ft. Kendrick Lamar, Flume & More

Big Fish Theory

Vince Staples has just released his sophomore album Big Fish Theory and further demonstrates his consistency and versatility. The album includes previously released singles "BagBak," "Big Fish," and "Rain Come Down."

While the album is only 35 minutes long, he is able to fit in tons of hooks, verses, and collaborators to make a tight, concise project. Features on the album include Kendrick Lamar, Flume, Kučka, Damon Albarn (of Gorillaz), Ty Dolla $ign, and many more. The album is much more dance-heavy than his debut, and Vince really shows that he can rap over anything. The prominent basslines take the forefront of many of the beats, backed by heavy synths and production unlike any other hip-hop album this year.

Album standout "Yeah Right" features technical verses from Kendrick Lamar and Vince Staples over a wild beat made by Flume & SOPHIE, that sounds more like "Wall Fuck" than anything else Flume has done recently. Kučka brings the track together with a bridge about authenticity before Kendrick's dizzying verse that will immediately have you hitting repeat to hear all of his flow switches and rhyming patterns. We highly recommend the album from start to finish and will have this on repeat all summer. Enjoy!

Lorde Drops Sophomore Album 'Melodrama' With Production By Flume

Lorde Flume

After a long break in between albums, Lorde has shared her sophomore LP Melodrama. The 11-track album is first since her debut in 2013. 

The best surprise about the project has a Flume production credit on the track “The Louvre”. The collaborative effort wasn’t known until the project dropped and Flume congratulated Lorde and revealed his involvement on the track. Flume remixed Lorde’s “Tennis Court” years back so the two working together doesn’t come as a shocker, but is a pleasant surprise. The song uses a minimal instrumental as we can hear Flume’s influence with a more experimental portions of glitchy sound design. Lorde picks up where she left off years ago with a matured sound and direction on her latest. Stream below and enjoy!
