“Don’t you know I love the way that I’m turning.
You make make me feel like someone new.
Transformation is fucking hard. To quote Zoolander at an opportune moment, “I’m not an ambi-turner. It’s a problem I’ve had since I was baby. … I can’t turn left.” In this case, turning can be so fucking difficult. After all, we can never know what we don’t know – unless we have someone there to open up those new understandings for us. It’s a journey of vulnerability, relinquishment, surrender, and incredible new self-discoveries. But fuck, it ain’t easy. My personal journey of transformation hasn’t been consciously undertaken for very long – though one can argue it’s been happening all my life – and as it begins it’s crest over my daily life I find myself turning in all sorts of new directions. Am I new? Maybe. Confused? At times, absolutely. Happy? Yes, most definitely. I do love the way I’m turning, although my compass can’t always tell me which pole I’m focused on and when. And while I haven’t found that special ‘You’ in my life, there are most certainly a lot of you’s, and I want to thank them all for helping to turn me in the right direction.
On the heels of a string of sold-out U.S. dates, internationally acclaimed beatmaker Flume has blown minds once again with his complete transformation of fellow Australians Collarbones’ “Turning.” Since sometime around his Disclosure mix, Flume has been no stranger to transformation, altering the musical landscape almost single-handedly.
