How does flume make those glitchy drops?

How to do this, that and the other. Share, learn, teach. How did X do that? How can I sound like Y?

I've been listening to flumes remix of Eiffel 65 - Blue. I'm wanting to know what techniques he possibly could have used at the drop at around 0:43

Any feedback or other techniques he might use would be appreciated.

Trancegate on the original song during that period?

Gate or maybe something similar to the M4L Buffer Shuffler, very small chance something granular maybe as it seems like he stretches out the original a bit as well

Ok cool. I'm keen to try out those techniques. Thanks for the replies!

For his latest album, there was a lot of granular synthesis involved. I imagine he probably bounced the results to audio and cut them up a bit. Like Legend and False said, it's pretty likely he just used a gate. I'd also bet that there's some slight filter automation going on.

Some of those sounds are reversed, maybe.
