[Watch] Flume Uploads His Full Documentary To Youtube

Flume Uploads Documentary To YoutubeFlume is just like you. Well, minus the awards, money, and millions of adoring fans. The common theme among artists, regardless of what they create, is dreaming of one day making it big. Along with that, every creative person has hurdles to overcome along the way. In his documentary, ‘When Everything Was New’ Harley Streten attempts to share that journey with us. Finally, That journey is available for anyone to witness for themselves, on YouTube.

It’s been two years since Harley released any new music. However, last April the future bass juggernaut announced the release of two documentaries that would cover his life as a DJ  and creative process as a producer. Unfortunately, the content was exclusive to Apple so only iTunes users could get their hands on it. Thankfully, Flume was gracious enough to share the films with the world.

The documentary definitely reaches back into the earlier years of Flume’s life. It goes back to when he was a kid and highlights every step he took to get where he is today. For example, his parents are interviewed in the film attempting to explain how their son’s musicality developed over time. It all helps to develop a great story and is easily something any artist can relate to.

Arguably the most interesting thing about the film is that it chronicles his career from its infancy to where it is now. From playing small underground warehouse spots to filling up arenas, we get an in depth look at Flume’s roots. It even includes footage of Harley explaining his struggles with creativity and anxiety. Additionally, it shows how the many people around him affect him and vice-versa. Overall, the  documentary is  a great watch and is definitely something every new artist should see. Check out the four part movie below!

Up-and-coming French producer Plastic Toy has teamed up with DJ Snake for smooth single “Try Me.” The track marks DJ Snake’s first release on his own Premiere Classe Records, as well as Plastic Toy’s debut release, something that surely ought to set him up for a bright future.

On the topic of “Try Me,” Plastic Toy said:

“The most interesting thing in this song for me, is the lead synth that comes in with the drop. With DJ Snake, we pushed the track to a whole new level, giving it that powerful and melodic sound. Working with Snake was very inspiring. He has the ability to feel the music and what’s going to sound good.”

Fans Defend Getter After He’s Boo’d at His Houston Show

When you go to a show there are certain expectations we have as fans. American producer, Tanner Petulla, who more commonly known as Getter, is currently on tour for his Visceral album. Unfortunately, some individuals last night weren’t feeling his set in Houston.

Rave Humor shared the news on Facebook.

Getter’s friend and fellow producer, Ekali, posted on Twitter today about what happened.

 

The Aftermath

So far there have not been any videos posted showing the incident, but it has been confirmed through fans across all social media platforms. The majority of reactions have been supportive of Petulla. Some fans have called for Excision to cancel his Houston show as punishment for the rude reaction of the ‘railers.’

 

Originally, Getter’s music has been primarily Dubstep. What is surprising is the amount of backlash he has received from fans on his Visceral album and tour. And yet, Petulla has been open to the criticism and earlier this month decided to adjust some aspects of his live show.

The Bigger Picture

This situation brings up a larger issue within music culture.

Being a “fan since day one” doesn’t mean you own the artist. In fact, if you claim to be a die-hard fan since the beginning of the artist’s career then by default you should know that they are embarking on a journey of musical discovery. It’s okay to love the origins but a lot of you still need to learn how to respect the development. This is their career. Sure, criticism is a part of any job, and we need it in order to grow and learn. There is a difference between constructive criticism and being an asshole.

Getter, don’t stop what you’re doing. We appreciate you and your music. Some people really suck.

You can stream his latest single, Ham Sandwich, below.

Flume’s breathtaking documentary is now available for all.

Flume released his documentary When Everything Was New on Apple Music less than a year ago. It accompanied by Sleepless and showcasing the story behind Future Classic, the Australian label responsible for bringing Flume the success he enjoys today. 

Now the Grammy Award-winning artist and producer (real name Harley Streten) has released When Everything Was New split into four parts on his YouTube channel.

Masterfully directed by Nic Wrathall, it goes over Streten’s humble beginnings as a bedroom producer, how he got the attention of Future Classic, his creative process, and ultimately the journey towards the release of Skin in 2016, a critically-acclaimed effort that won Best Dance/Electronic Album a year later at the Grammy Awards

Flume: When Everything Was New (Documentary Part 1)

Flume: When Everything Was New (Documentary Part 2)

Flume’s self-titled debut album came in 2012 and immediately caught the attention of fans and publications all over the world. The Australian producer has since went on to become one of electronic music’s most forward-thinking figures, and has collaborated with artists such as Nick Murphy A.K.A. Chet Faker, Kendrick LamarLittle Dragon and Beck.  

In December 2018 Flume teased his return, so it will be exciting to see how the producer will continue his musical endeavors in 2019.

Getter Booed by Fans During Visceral Tour Stop at Stereo Live in Houston

Getter fans haven’t unanimously celebrated his shift in creative direction.

Every successful artist must walk a fine line between staying true to themselves and pleasing their fans, but Getter‘s recent shift has elicited more wrath than he may have expected. A week after he tweeted that he would adjust his Visceral Tour performances in response to criticism from fans. It may not have been enough as he was booed by many of those who attended his set at Stereo Live in Houston last night.

The Visceral Tour, which kicked off last month, sees Getter (real name Tanner Petulla) deliver sets centered around his 2018 album of the same name. The effort marked a move away from the heavy drops for which he garnered a worldwide fan base in favor of more ambient, introspective sounds. Despite Visceral‘s widespread critical acclaim, the songs haven’t entirely been received well by concertgoers expecting his previous style.

After heckling him during his Stereo Live performance, some attendees ridiculed him on social media. Others came to his defense, including his former tour manager, who wrote:

“The bass scene has some of the most toxic fans of any scene and it’s so disheartening, it’s fucking music… Someone poured their heart and soul into hours of work for it. If you don’t prefer something cool, that doesn’t mean go publicly belittle an artist because it didn’t help your ecstasy-fueled head banging session. Really think we should make a conscious effort to weed out these inhumane ‘fans.’”

Last night wasn’t the first time Stereo Live patrons engaged in similar behavior. Last December, MUST DIE! condemned fans who complained about an opener playing house music before his set. 

Getter will resume his Visceral Tour with a performance tonight, March 16th, in Dallas, Texas. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit his website.

Spotify Claims Apple Music Utilizes ‘Unfair Advantages’

spotify v apple
Spotify and Apple Music are in a serious battle for music streaming supremacy. Recently, Spotify added new privileges specifically for Samsung users, in an attempt to come out ahead. But they still lag behind in the iPhone market. One reason for that is due to the Apple App store.

According to Spotify’s founder, Daniel Ek, the Apple App Store requires Spotify and other digital services to pay 30 percent tax on items that are purchased through Apple’s payment system. This includes upgrading to Spotify Premium. “If we pay this tax,” Ek said, “it would force us to artificially inflate the price of our premium membership well above the price of Apple Music. And to keep our price competitive for our customers, that isn’t something we can do.”

There also seems to be a bit of a double standard. Apps such as Uber are not affected by this tax. This makes it seem like Apple is picking and choosing who they want to charge. Spotify has filed an official claim with the European Commission to fight this tax.

Ek did stress that this isn’t a “Spotify-versus-Apple issue” but rather a “Competition on the merits” but…let’s be honest here, it also is very much a Spotify-versus-Apple issue.
