Flume’s ubiquitous latest release Never Be Like You presents one hell of a remix challenge: how do you put your own spin on a self-contained pop gem?

For his official remix, Australia’s favourite purveyor of rainbow bright club confection Wave Racer has gone for the light-touch, leaving the original largely intact while putting a Wavey spine on the vocal samples and drops.

Give the remix a listen below – it’s part of the official Never Be Like You package, which also includes Disclosure’s bumping house edit. You can grab the whole thing now on iTunes and Spotify with an additional remix by US duo Teengirl Fantasy.

While we wait for Flume’s long-teased sophomore album Skin to drop, you can hit repeat on the new Spotify playlist of his current favourite tunes, featuring all kinds of nutritious down-tempo bass music and smart pop.
