29: Flume feat. Vince Staples & Kučka – Smoke & Retribution

Flume is odd. Rather, Flume‘s music is odd. He fidgets with rhythms in peculiar, yet effective fashions, and there’s nothing about to really dance to, no matter how hard people try. Nevertheless, it’s quite magnificent. New track ‘Smoke & Retribution’ combines elements of his three most recent releases – the spiky, error message tones of ‘Some Minds’, the explosive synth crescendo as percussion from his remix of Collarbones‘ ‘Turning’, and the sophisticated emotional tone, especially in the vocals, from Skin‘s leader ‘Never Be Like You’ – with guests Vince Staples (of quite good rap fame) and Kučka setting it distinctly apart. Despite the recent churn of new music, Skin is still dateless. Anticipation, on the other hand, is flourishing.
