Review Summary: Flume in textures

Collaborative releases are damn hard work, but not seemingly so when both artists are rising-star producers of the Australian music scene. Flume has literally taken the world by storm with his critically acclaimed self titled debut album, which featured the alt-crooner Chet Faker for vocal duties on ‘Left Alon’. Chet Faker is also no fool behind the decks either, with his own EP Thinking In Textures receiving high praise for the beat making and the vocal melodies laid down. Lockjaw is a fantastic mix of the juxtaposed production that is created by the beat makers, with the silky smooth throbbing of Flume complimented by the more soulful and up beat textures created by Chet Faker.

Opener ‘Drop the Game’ showcases the perfect infusion of the two producers with a crooning Chet Faker being accompanied by a pulsating, yet breezy Flume production that showcases a strong knowledge of subtly to enhance to ebbs and flows of the whole sound-scape while still showing a good knowledge of manipulating samples. The other two tracks of the Lockjaw EP follow similar melancholy styling’s that showcase the diversity and talent of these two rising stars of the Australian music scene. Any suggestion of a full album from these two producers would definitely be welcomed, seamlessly touring and also constantly recording together suggests that more collaborative output is more than likely in the near future.
