If there was any doubt whether you were going to get your hands on the four-disc Deluxe Edition rerelease of Flume’s self-titled debut, the young producer has today provided a fairly compelling reason to snap it up via a tasty new track dubbed Intro.
Testament to the rising star’s pulling power, the track features Maybach Music Group employee and Rick Ross collaborator Stalley and is set to feature on the Mixtape portion of the upcoming rerelease.
As the title suggests, Intro opens up the album, with some cascading piano bringing some serious class. The drop will most likely catch you off guard as a subtle glitch turns into the foundation of the hip hop beat for the remainder of the track. Once tagged, Stalley enters the ring with a beast of a verse, managing to keep a happy medium between gangsta and thoughtful.
The Deluxe Edition is looking like more and more of a sonic assault every day, with word on the street bring both Ghostface Killah and Killer Mike will feature on the record, as well as the previously revealed taster of Freddie Gibbs cutting sick over the anthemic Holdin’ On.
The whole shebang will be available Friday, 8th November with preorders kicking off this week. Flume will be one of the main attractions at this years Field Day, which dropped its mammoth lineup last week.
