Jeremy Malvin aka Chrome Sparks presents his third EP on Future Classic, expanding upon his affinity for synthesizers, unusual sound combinations, and sample manipulation. Lead single "Moonraker" is a constantly progressing track with a subtle groove and intricate percussion. "Give It Up" demonstrates Malvin's ability to heighten intensity and produce mind-bending music by layering synths and luscious percussion atop a solid bass groove. Finally, "Ride the White Lightning" is an intricate club weapon, taking listeners on an epic nine-minute journey that effortlessly glides through builds and breakdowns.
The debut album from Australian electronic musician/producer Flume, aka Harley Streten, Flume is an atmospheric, experimental mix of electronic dance-oriented sounds that touches upon aspects of RB, indie rock, and pop. Working with a bevy of artists including George Maple, Moon Holiday, Jezzabell Doran, Chet Faker, and New York rapper T-Shirt, Flume crafts tracks that are more like soundscapes than actual songs. More often than not, bits of melodies and lyrics pop up here and there, but tracks never quite gel into a hook in any traditional sense (although a few, like "Bring You Down," have a Dido-like trip-hop/dubstep quality). Which isn't to say these aren't catchy recordings. On the contrary, Flume has a knack for layering beats, instruments, samples, and vocals in a way that grabs your attention and creates an evocative, somewhat hypnotic mood. While not necessarily dancefloor-oriented, Flume's debut certainly fits into a post-2000s club vibe and DJ culture that borrows liberally, and often with inspired aplomb, from cut-and-paste hip-hop, avant-garde electronic composition, ambient pop, and contemporary R&B.

Two of Australia's most promising prospects have collaborated on this stand-alone release. Renaissance beat maker Ta-Ku and Brisbane-based vocalist Wafia present (m)edian. Having previously work together on Wafia's own standout single ''Heartburn'', the plan for a collaborative release was hatched when Ta-ku produced a cover of Estelle's ''American Boy'', aptly titled ''American Girl'' with Wafia on featuring vocals, for a sold out MoMA PS1 live show in October 2015. The result is a five track release that unites the strengths of each artist - a unique, creative and classy exploration of admiration, paternity, compromise and egalitarianism.
