It may not have been televised, but future bass king Flume won his first Grammy last night in Los Angeles, and it was a doozy. The Australian producer took home best dance / electronic album for his album Skin, despite being up against heavyweights Tycho, Jean-Michel Jarre, Underworld, and Louie Vega.
After accepting his trophy and snapping a few official photos, he took a step outside to celebrate with friends and take a call from Aussie’s taste-making radio station Triple J.
“The whole thing is just ridiculous,” he says laughing. “We were all kind of cheering to the point where I think the lady who was presenting the award got kind of annoyed.”
He confided that he didn’t actually get to keep the trophy. The Grammy officials mail it out after engraving, which was good considering he’d “probably lose it, otherwise.” He compared the Grammys to Australia’s ARIAs, which he swept with eight awards in late 2016, and spoke a bit about his plans for the rest for the evening.
