Good news Australia, Flume just won his first Grammy
Australia, we’ve got some very good news – your boy Flume just picked up his first ever Grammy.
Future Classic’s Harley Streten just won the Grammy for Best Dance/Electronic Music Album for his second LP Skin, beating out nominees Tycho, Jean-Michel Jarre, Underworld and Louie Vega for the gong.
“I’m really proud to be here representing Australia and Australian music,” Streten said in his acceptance speech, before using his thank-yous to shout out another homegrown producer: Naderi. “Shawn, who came here from Sydney, [has] mentored me for years and taught me production.” Shawn Naderi taught Harley to produce when he was a teenager and the two now share a studio space in Sydney’s Northern Beaches.
Best Dance/Electronic Album isn’t all Harley is up for today in L.A. – he’s also nominated for Best Dance Recording with his hit Never Be Like You, a category he’ll have to beat out The Chainsmokers, Bob Moses, Riton and Sofi Tukker to win.
