Australian beat-beast Flume has taken on Lorde's "Tennis Court." That's the "yeah" song for those not so good with titles, and Pure Heroine's opening track which is, as the 17-year-old New Zealand star explained at Coachella, about her angst over becoming an adult. And in case you've been hiding in an electronic-music-proof bunker (or not riding on EDM-blasting cruise ships), Flume is a rising/risen producer from Oz with a knack for chillstep textures, futuristic garage compositions, and eerily deep house pulsing. He's one half of the OWSLA duo What So Not and also an occasional Ghostface Killah collaborator. Below, he brings his diversely powerful touch (and quite possibly a horse's neighing) to Lorde's enticingly odd pop. Hit play:
