Flume aka Harley Streten just keeps giving us the goods. If you love creating your own music and quirky tunes in your spare time, then today is your lucky day!
Just yesterday, the Sydney-born artist unveiled the first instalment of Flume Sounds, an ongoing series for fans where he offers his own audio loops as free downloads for creators to use in their own music production.
This is the closest we will ever get to collaborating with Flume himself, but we’ll take it!
Have a suss of the first instalment of Flume’s open-source loop series here.
Having built a literal library of sounds over the years, he will be regularly releasing his creations in bundles via his YouTube channel as well as his socials, available to be used by anyone for non-monetised use.
As stated on his YouTube channel, you will be able to use the sound files for free to create new music but must not use any of it in a commercial manner or for financial benefit.
The artist also explains his reasoning behind the open-source sounds, revealing how he wants to “put these out in the world and see what comes back” to really enhance people’s creativity.
Your steps to use Flume Sounds, according to Flume are:
- Download a sound
- Create something
- Upload to YouTube or social media with the hashtag #flumesounds
This new adventure follows his recent performances at Lollapalooza, Red Rocks and Outside Lands where he flaunted his new live show performance, collaborating with renowned stage designer John McGuire who has previously worked with big names such as Kanye West, Calvin Harris and Travis Scott.
You can catch this same performance when he returns to the homeland to headline Listen Out and Adelaide’s sister version Listen In in October – but hurry because fourth release tickets are quickly disappearing.
Tickets for Listen In are available here!
