Australian DJ and music producer Harley Streten, best known as Flume, has won a Grammy Award for Best Dance/Electronic Album at the 59th annual Grammy awards overnight.
A stunned Streten said the win was “insane”, but added on stage he was proud to be at America’s top music awards ceremony, representing both Australian music and his hometown junior rugby league club, the Forestville Ferrets.
“It’s an honour to be here as a EDM artist from Sydney’s Northern Beaches, but it’s also an honour to be here as a life member of the Forestville Ferrets Junior Rugby League Football Club”
“This one goes out to all my boys back home in the green and white, this is for you” he shouted, before making ‘yelping’ sounds to emulate his team mascot.
“Up the fuckin’ Ferrets!”
Led by Streten, the entire Grammy audience began chanting in unison “Fe-rrets! Fe-rrets! Fe-rretts”
This isn’t the first time the ‘Holdin’ On’ producer has made headlines for his undying love of his hometown in the NSW yewww-belt.
Late last year, Flume made headlines when it was revealed that he still lives with his old girl when touring Australia: Flume’s Sydney Concert Held Up Waiting For Mum To Drop Off Spare USB From Newport
