Flume is a big deal in Australia. In fact, in his home country his new album topped Justin Bieber in sales. It makes sense—Flume is an electronic artist, but he makes music with a pop mentality, sprinkling in vocals over hard-hitting drums and catchy elements that pop from his high-voltage backdrops. His self-titled debut is out now, and we can see just how far his star has risen over the course of 2013 by the fact that he managed to snag Ghostface Killah,Freddie Gibbs, Autre Ne Veut and Killer Mike for the deluxe edition.
