Flume Remixes Sam Smith, Announces World Tour

One of the biggest producers in the world has remixed one of the biggest songs in the world. That’s right, Australia’s prodigal song Flume dropped a sneaky remix of Sam Smith‘s Lay Me Down in the wee hours of our morning this morning, and I don’t think the world could handle it.

Already accumulating over 300,000 plays in 13 hours, Harley Streten continues to exercise his knack of “killing it” with every move. Offering up a breakneck, glittering rework, Streten has allowed for Smith’s vocals to still shine through (how could they not?) whilst employing a stronger, more amped up Flume style. It’s awesome!

That’s not all the news that has emerged from the Flume camp this morning. The super producer has also announced a HUGE string of dates, with sadly only two in Australia (for Future Classic‘s VIVID Live showcase) that have already sold out. See below for the full dates, and join me in hoping he cannot be serious about his Australian tour schedule…
