“I have the value of a complete album of house”


Flume said NME that he created a “complete album” of house music. Watch our video interview with the article above.

Talk to NME Backstage at Mad Cool Festival 2022, the Australian producer – real name Harley Streten – spoke about various projects he’s been working on. His third album “Palaces”, released in May, hosted a series of ideas that he hoped to return to later.

“I mean I have a full album of house music that’s right there that I just need to finish,” Streten said. “I’ve got loads of demos, some of them have strong parts for sure. Some of them are garbage, most of them are garbage, but there’s definitely some bits in there .

The artist also explained that after the Mad Cool Festival, he will be going to the studio in the UK. “I’m about to go to London to do two weeks of sessions, it’s kind of the first thing [I’ve worked on since ‘Palaces’]then we’ll see.

When asked if he could share who the sessions would be with, Streten replied: “I think I’m doing one with Fred Again.. who I’m a big fan of – but I think that’s the first thing we locked down I just decided to take the trip last week but made a little list of people I wanted to be with [work with].”

Streten also discussed the recent “Palaces” sidekick, “Palaces (The Remixes, Pt. 1)”. The project includes reworkings of tracks from his third album, with remixes from Mount Kimbie, Prospa, Logic100 and Otik.

“I just find people I’m a fan of and reach out to them,” he continued. “I was really happy with the Mount Kimbie one, and it’s cool to be able to have some of your biggest influences now remixing your stuff.”

In a four-star review of ‘Palaces’, NME said the record’s Streten “combines his ground-shaking, hit-making style with quieter moments of introspection, reaching new heights in the process” .
