Chet Faker – Gold (Flume Re-Work)

chet faker

Golden boy Harley Streten – Flume has delivered.

Two days ago Flume unexpectedly dropped a re-work of Chet Faker‘s “Gold”, stoking his bromance to new levels. Don’t forget, these two great musos have worked together before in their joint EP Lockjaw last year. Flume’s rendition of “Gold” is risky, but seems to maintain its cool vibe. You know what they say – you have to risk it for the biscuit! Starting in 2011, Flume now has an international following.

“Gold” has gained momentum, with more electro and less acoustic. Flume’s tweaks have produced an honourable remix. Although different, Flume’s stirring synths and electronic effects create an encompassing atmosphere. His futuristic interpretation is fresher than fresh. If you’re not frothing, you probably need a hearing aid. This is a track where you can flick up the volume and be insanely immersed in Flume goodness. Dwell in the dramatic pauses, soar with the uplifting vocals of Faker and enjoy this gospel-like remix.

“You gotta know, I’m feeling love /
You gotta know, I’m feeling love.”

If you want to catch this winning combo, you’re in luck. Both Flume and Chet Faker (Chume, if you like) will feature at Listen Out 2014 in September. Another thing, earlier this year Flume mentioned in a Facebook post that a second album is “very much underway”.  Hopefully, this means that Flume will drop a new album sometime this year. Advice from art felicis – just be ready.
