Flume and Chet Faker's 'Drop the Game' (Sweater Beats Remix): Exclusive Premiere

Sweater Beats

The post-EDM electronic scene in Australia has gotten a lot of attention because of Flume, a DJ and producer who has been selling out shows around the world with his subtler, sexier dancefloor workout indebted to J Dilla and Flying Lotus. Earlier this year he dropped the Drop the Game EP with fellow Aussie Chet Faker, who has lent his richly mumblemouthed vocals to Flume's instrumentals before. 

Drop the Game's title track has now received the remix treatment from Brooklyn beatmaker Sweater Beats, who will be releasing his own Cloud City EP this fall on HW&W. Sweater Beats (real name Antonio Cuna) toured with Flume and Faker this past year and has received endorsements from Toddla T and Diplo, both of whom have played his sultry extended mixes on their BBC shows.

Though he traffics in similarly downtempo themes as Flume, Sweater Beats gives "Drop the Game" more urgency with a violin interlude, mechanized shrieks and understated synthesizers revving like a distant engine in the background. He'll be on the road this fall for a series of university shows, some with Jason Derulo and Travi$ Scott. Find the full list of dates below.
