Queue the Never Be Like You chords because Flume’s Like A Version is a timely reminder that we will never, ever have friends as cool as Flume. And by friends, we mean local legends Vera Blue, Ngaiire, Kai, Kuka and Smoke & Retributions collaborator Vince Staples.
The undeniable king of Australian electronic music, and proud owner of EIGHT ARIA awards, popped into triple j today for this week's Like A Version with the aforementioned crew and, you best believe it, we were pretty much left speechless.
“Haven’t I lived a similar moment like this before?” you may ask. Well, yes. Those lucky enough to attend Splendour In The Grass this year will remember the group of local legends he brought out for his set. Today, the dream team performed a much more bittersweet rendition of hit Never Be Like You, featuring harmonising that's outta this world.
Although Flume, Staples and Kuka didn’t play their hit collaboration together, the 2.0 gang combined for a cover of Ghost Town DJs My Boo and it was A++.
Ahhh gotta love a good ‘ol homegrown edition of Like A Version, even when Flume leaves you questioning whether you are as cool as him and his friends.
