Flume drops an 'Esoteric Future Bass' remix of Danny L Harle & DJ Danny's 'On A Mountain'!
The release marks over a year since the Australian music anomaly set free some music for the world to consume. Flume's rework of 'On A Mountain' from Danny L Harle's long play debut album 'Harelecore' is nothing short of an extraordinaire!
For those who are a touch unfamiliar with the works of L Harle, 'Harlecore' was the British electronic composer's debut album that was released this year around the end of February through Diplo's label, 'Mad Decent'. The album features Harle taking on the personas of four different DJs, each embodying their own delphic rave-inspired sound!
With the state of life around the pandemic, Harle went a step further by contriving a virtual club experience for the niche to indulge in!

The Grammy winner's recreation of 'On A Mountain' is yet another exposure to the kaleidoscopic mind of Streten, introducing the piece by exaggerating the strategically placed reverb tails from the original mix and hinting micro-glitches to prep the audience on what's about to hit them. Sparing no time, at the 25-second mark, Flume punches everyone listening with short whiffs of unpredictably placed saw stabs followed by a long and heavy-hitting bit-crush that frankly causes micro spasms to the receptors inside one's brain! The track proceeds to push and pull one's psyche in and out, layering L Harle's original rave synths until the 1:15 mark. The breakdown initiates with vocal chops and delays, which is immediately followed by a build-up shadowing Harle's Drum n Bass inspirited breakbeats, quickly pushing one into the final drop! The cherry on top arrives just before the outro at 2:29, where Streten drowns the record inside the most satisfying flange that one could have ever asked for!
