Dynamic Duo: Flume & Toro y Moi, The Difference, Single Review

Continuing to impress once again, Flume enlists Toro y Moi for his first official release of the new year. 

Arriving at the turning point of recent events, Flume provides an electronic drum and bass number entitled The Difference. Revealing to Zane Lowe in a recent Beats 1 interview, Flume says that the collaboration came into fruition after the Oakland producer stopped by his studio and “messed around on synths”. 

Closing the gap between the bridges of his previous records, Flume continues into a realm of experimentation, allowing fans to once again, expect the unexpected. This time around, he releases a drum and bass tune that guides into a different route. With Chaz Wick in the passenger side, both artists butt heads in the best possible way, cranking up the bass and allowing this to sound like an actual aunthentic collaboration.  

Kicking off with intense energy straight from the get go, The Difference is a high speed chase that is short but sweet. Luscious Flume synths that are remastered with the apparent Toro touch, it transitions into various dynamics. It cuts right at the point when you get comfortable with the new sound, but leaves you demanding for more. Harley throws a curveball, one that lands into an alternate soundscape, hinting at what might be in store with his upcoming new album.
