Flume tests out new stage design at Laneaway FestivalFlume Stage Setup

Flume tests out new stage design at Laneaway Festival

The onset of 2016 conjured hope for Flume fans as the Australian icon finally released an album preview for the highly-anticipated Skin, shortly after unleashing “Never Be Like You” and “Smoke and Retribution” within a couple weeks of each other. Both tracks, along with his collaboration with Andrew Wyatt “Some Minds,” revealed a new musical direction for Flume, maintaining his eclectic touch on production yet delving into a more complex style than the future bass sounds he pioneered beforehand.

It turns out music is not the only new offering Flume has in store for fans this year. A short aftermovie clip of the Brisbane stop of Australia’s St. Jerome’s Laneaway Festival affords us a taste of his new setup – a cubical version of his “Infinity Prism” design. Rather than using a hexagonal tunnel to project an array of trippy light designs, the young artist and his team have created a cage-like structure combining a series of mini cubes under the decks to create effects similar to those premiered using his Infinity Prism.

A set release date has yet to be revealed for Skin, which Flume dubbed “headphone music” in a recent Triple J interview. He also stated that the music was essentially completed, and that we should expect to see “lots of Flume” this year.” For a peek of his new stage design in action, skip to the 52-second mark in the video.

Check out all the action from Laneway Festival over the weekend. You’re next Melbourne and Fremantle! #Laneway2016
