It’s been awhile since I’ve listened to Flume’s Never Be Like You, featuring Kai, even though I couldn’t get enough of it for months on end when it first dropped. Never Be Like You is without a doubt Flume’s most successful single. It propelled him into the world of mainstream radio play… a constant, inescapable play, at that. Arizona’s OLMOS reminds me how much I still love Never Be Like You with a welcome remix re-visit. Deep rumbling bass and scintillating chops create a cinematic and expansive experience on OLMOS’ future bass re-work. OLMOS’ remix is a grand exhilarating adventure, and you can snag it for free, here.

Back to the City Of Lights we go as yet another gifted French producer brings us all the feels on a dusky chic original named Neon Girl featuring singer songwriter and fellow Parisian Ernest Mori. Bazane’s presents us with a wonky chill emulsion constructed out of the chic elegance of French electro and the coruscant glamor of nu-disco. It’s almost as if Metronomy has gone jazzy electro funk on us. We feel like we’re in Paris right now as we shuffle and sway to this resplendent confection. For more of Bazane’s sonic wizardry, a visit with his remix of Flume’s Never Be Like You is a must. Stream that luscious grooving treat below. You can also find an alternate stream of Neon Girl via Soundcloud there, too. Neon Girl can be purchased from Bandcamp.

What’s probably Flume’s biggest mainstream hit of his career, his Kai featuring future bass and chill trap masterpiece Never Be Like You, has now been given a jaw dropping re-work by Martin Solveig. This unexpected but oh so satisfying remix by the Frenchman takes the track in a euphoric house direction. Big hearty beats and ardent blaring synths lift us towards the heavens. It’s a high you won’t want to come down from.

If I could make a tribute to Flume, I would, but I have no skills when it comes to making music. Fortunately for me, we have German producer TRAILS, and he’s created an ode to Harley Streten and done so with aplomb, too. It’s three minutes, forty seconds of future trap bliss on “A Flume Tribute”, a seamless mash up of Never Be Like You, Wall Fuck, Helix, Free, and Hyperparadise. As the producer says, “Never Fuck Helix Walls For Free In Hyperparadise” wouldn’t be the appropriate title for this inferno of a sick jam, a little treat for us while TRAILS continues to write original music. You can grab TRAILS’ Flume tribute from Toneden.

Our Santa Barbara boys Dropout are doing incredible things once again as they drop (pun intended) a scintillating new one in the form of Never Hate You, which features gorgeous vocals by one Anna Clendening. Never Hate You is actually a mashup cover affair, one that brings together Flume & Kai’s smash hit Never Be Like You and gnash & Olivia O’Brien’s “i hate u, i love u”, two tunes I adore massively. How they ever came up with this idea eludes my mind, but I’m plenty grateful they did. Never Hate You is divine, a seamless fusion of two tremendous songs. They combine to form one epic bouncy banger of an uplifting electronic jam. I’ll never be confused between choosing one song over another to listen to again. Well played, thank you, guys. Dropout’s Never Hate You is a free download, here.

I happened to catch an early preview of this one last week and have been waiting to share it with you, and let me tell you, it is pure magnificence. SoCal’s Crywolf, who puts on a spectacular live show, has covered Flume’s smash hit Never Be Like You. The song goes gut pummeling atmospheric on the massive cover. Crywolf slows it down a notch and gives instills in it a bounty of his signature majestic sound. His voice near cracks under the pressure of passionate emotion. This is an extra organic Never Be Like You with much ominously brooding ambiance. Anguish and torment linger long after the cover ends. The air is so heavy I can barely breath, but I dive right back into this ocean of sweeping brilliance. Crywolf has presented the track as a free download, here.

Everyday, a countless amount of great electronic tracks emerge from the production woodwork, many of them much pleasing sonic marvels. As it’s an impossible feat to share, or even listen, to all of these great tunes, I have to try and look out for the more unique tracks, the ones that stand out and require repeat listens. This new remix of Flume’s Never Be Like You, featuring Kai, certainly fits the billing. NYC based duo Teengirl Fantasy creates a mesmerizing experience on their jagged and notched remix, its dissonance and unpredictable twists and turns a welcome change of pace. Some might consider this quirky remix a bit hard to stomach on first listen, but give it an open mind and welcoming ear, and it’ll take you on a bizarre and inebriating journey sure to jostle your senses and jog your mind. I, for one, am a huge fan. Teengirl Fantasy’s inventive remix is part of the Never Be Like You remix EP, available from iTunes.

Flume’s Never Be Like You, featuring Kai, is quickly becoming one of the most remixed tracks of late. It’s no wonder, considering the magnificence of the hooking melodic future bass and chill trap anthem. Producer Nikö Blank offers up a fresh new version of Never Be Like You, one that even features a new vocalist, New York City’s Marco Foster. The new approach on the song doesn’t stray far from the original, but the effortlessly smooth male vocals are a welcome new angle on the track, draping Never Be Like You in a blanket of sleeker, less fiery fervency. Download the rendition for free, here.

I must have done something really right, and racked up some major music karma, because one of my favorite songs of the moment, almighty Flume’s Never Be Like You, featuring Kai, has received the Wave Racer remix treatment. Never Be Like You goes dizzying choppy and blinding shiny on the mega Future Classic affair, a pulse quickening, thrill tingling smash of a track. Stream Wave Racer’s remix on Spotify above or Soundcloud below. The remix is part of the Never Be Like You remix EP, available from iTunes.

A track that involves both Flume and Disclosure would naturally be one of the most buzzing reveals of the day. After all, it would be a combination of two of the most influential, ground breaking electronic acts of the past couple of years, sure to be a mind melting experience. Well, we’ve won the music lottery today, because Flume’s Never Be Like You, that fantastic future bass ballad I love so dearly that features Kai on guest vocals, has been remixed by the UK house and garage duo. Disclosure’s Never Be Like You is mind numbing indeed, steeped in dizzying underground darkness. It would be so fulfilling to lurch about, covered in sweat, on a tightly packed dance floor to this wild, carnal beast of a track.
