Review: Disclosure – You & Me (Flume Remix)
Seemingly derived by the back half of all things Great Gatsby inspired, Flume’s latest remix of Disclosure’s “You & Me” integrates cinematic-orchestral lines into the hip-hop tinged style that has become synonymous with his name. It seems no easy task to remix Disclosure tracks, the uncharacteristic tempo and garage rhythms tend to give remixers a bit of a challenge, but Flume has done so in an equally uncharacteristic fashion to add to a track that seemed near perfect from the beginning.
Sweeping violins set to an echoed version of Eliza Doolittle’s voice take the track out of its pop territory placing it into what Flume has self-labeled, OrchestralCrunkwave. Head-nodders everywhere approve and – quite frankly – we could think of no better title to describe this genre defying remix.
Minutes after the remix aired on the popular Australian show Triple J the world was sent a twitter (literally). Let us not forget that both Flume and Disclosure are just shy of the legal American drinking age – so is this the age of the young gun producer? One thing is certain, if they are achieving this level of production at such a tender age, we can’t wait to see what they create in their prime.
