Harley Streten, better known as international music producer, Flume, has bought a Sydney bolthole.

The 26 year old DJ has purchsed a new Manly apartment.

He's paid $1.25 million for a two bedroom apartment in the newly completed Hum complex.

There are only two apartments per floor.

He's previously given his address as the family home in Seaforth where the ARIA Award winning artist grew up.

It was where he first began composing electronic music from his bedroom as an eight-year-old, with a free music program given away in a cereal box.

Flume, who opted for the moniker after the Bon Iver song of the same name, broke through in 2012 with his self-titled debut studio album.

The album topped the ARIA Albums Chart and reached double-platinum accreditation in Australia.

He hit the headlines internationally after he moved to LA for three months a few years later.

He released Skin in 2016, his second studio album, won the Grammy for best dance/electronic album a year later and went platinum in six countries.

Flume announced headline shows with all 300,000 tickets of the world tour selling out. 

It included more than 80,000 tickets in Australia.

A pioneer of future bass, Flume has remixed songs from the likes of Lorde, Sam Smith and Disclosure. 

Flume is currently touring in the states, with shows in Colorado and Utah coming up. 

Flume once told the NME that he doesn't see himself living in the Hollywood Hills.

"I don’t think I’d ever live on the Hills or whatever, I just want a nice little place.”

He's been revered on the northern beaches, though the mooted statute never got erected at Manly Wharf.

There was an online petition launched by Aussie music blog Stoney Roads last year with the petition noting "Manly is home to Australia’s finest electronic music export".
