Flume – Never Be Like You feat. Kai (Wave Racer Remix)
We’ve been anticipating Flume‘s sophomore album Skin since the beginning of 2016. While he still hasn’t announced a concrete release date for the LP, the Australian producer has been slowly rolling out numerous tracks, most recently “Never Be Like You” — along with Disclosure‘s remix. He’s also premiered, via live performance, an untitled single on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1. Now we have a second remix of “Never Be Like You” courtesy of fellow Aussie Wave Racer.
Wave Racer, although increasing the tempo slightly, maintains a large portion of Flume’s work — notably the signature choppy synths and vocalist Kai’s unaltered vocals. The biggest alterations from Flume’s Future Classic label-mate are the basses that wobble slightly as they unfurl themselves under Kai’s hook and the addition of ethereal synths that make Wave Racer’s take brighter than Flume’s somewhat more somber original.
With the increase in frequency of releases off of Skin, it’s not a stretch of the imagination that a release date will be announced soon. Until then, you can listen to Wave Racer’s remix of “Never Be Like You” below.
