British electronic artist, producer and composer Jon Hopkin has remixed Flume feat. Toro Y Moi ‘The Difference’, which is out today and will feature as part of a remix package alongside edits from High Contrast, Picard Brothers and Willaris. K.
Jon Hopkins delivers a version of the BBC 6 Music A Listed single, slower in pace to the original, yet wholly expansive, and building to a kaleidoscopic, psychedelic climax. The full remix package will be available on June 26, but you can listen to the Jon Hopkin remix now, or watch the clay-motion visual accompaniment.
‘The Difference’ was the first piece of new music from the Sydney-born, L.A. based artist this year, following several releases last year including ‘Rushing Back ft. Vera Blue’, ‘Let You Know’ featuring London Grammar, and the much-lauded HI THIS IS FLUME mixtape and visualiser, which was nominated for Best Dance/Electronic Album at the Grammy Awards. The release was accompanied by a Jonathan Zawada-directed video – watch here.
Flume rose to prominence as a teenage with his brilliant, scene-starting, self-titled debut in 2012. Featuring the hits ‘Holdin On’, ‘On Top’, ‘Sleepless’ and others, the album amassed global plaudits, becoming a chart-topper in Australia. In the two years that followed, Flume established a name as a serious international contender, thanks to his compelling live show (debuting at Coachella, Lollapalooza, Reading and Leeds and many others) and skilful remixes of high-profile acts including Lorde and Disclosure.
After a series of well-received collaborations (LOCKJAW EP with Chet Faker  and SOME MINDS with Andrew Wyatt ), Flume released his second LP, SKIN. Launching with the blockbuster hit ‘Never Be Like You’ feat. Kai, the album reinforced Flume’s status as a inventive, boundary pushing producer while simultaneously reaching huge new audiences around the world. That year, Flume sold more than 300,000 tickets globally across a sold-out 59 date world tour. He achieved platinum and gold accreditation in multiple territories around the world and took home his first Grammy Award for Best Dance Electronic Album.
