Flume and Toro y Moi Cover Bag Raiders' 'Shooting Stars' with Some Jacked-as-Hell Guys
After finding common ground in 2020 on a track called "The Difference," Flume and Toro y Moi have once again teamed up for a performance at the infamous Triple J radio station. For their renowned Like a Version programming, the Australian producer and American singer offered a ravey take on "Shooting Stars," from Aussie duo Bag Raiders' 2008 EP Turbo Love — with assistance from some jacked-as-hell shirtless guys lifting weights and flexing.

Not since the first look at Daniel Radcliffe's "Weird Al" Yankovic for Weird: The Al Yankovic Story has an unexpected buff dude caught us so off guard! But also, it's a cover of "Shooting Stars," which is largely memorable for becoming a video mix trend that paired the EDM track with footage of people falling and such, so what else are we to expect from what is clearly a bit?

The meme spiked in popularity around 2017, and Flume was shocked that the song had yet to be given a proper Like a Version treatment.

"I just can't believe no one had done it yet," the producer said, deciding to bump up the BPM and bust out the alto saxophone he hadn't played since school band. "We just got chatting, me and Chaz [Bear], and one of us said we should get just dudes — just ripped dudes. To me, hardstyle and ripped dudes... it's a perfect harmony."

Flume added, "It's like Magic Mike but it's all Australian from-the-outback dudes. It's like, a thing in Vegas."

He and Toro y Moi both released albums earlier this year: Palaces and MAHAL, respectively.
