Knock Knock. Who’s there? Interrupting Cow. Interrupting co… MOOOOO. Shit jokes aside, do we have a party planned for you! First of all we give you WHAT SO NOT – Hailing from the sandstone bedrock that is Sydney, this duo (one half skyrocketing electronic act FLUME, the other flaming DJ rocket EMOH INSTEAD) is the fresh face of our beloved ‘Sweat it Out’ & voice of the ADD generation.
2010 saw the beginning of the What So Not journey into the musical unknown. Smelting sarcastic synth leads, vocal transpositions & the ever-essential 808, the two manipulated past and future to form their own eclectic brand of dance music.
After hours, weeks, and months of intense production sessions, fingers raw, throats hoarse, and brains stretched, they presented their case to the Dance Legend himself.
Much praise & excitement erupted over the now known ’7 Dollar Bill’ title track for What So Not’s debut EP, and the results appeared unanimous, with Switch (Major Lazer), Bag Raiders, Sinden, Boys Noize, and countless others all on board for this new-bred Bamboo Banger.
Released in Mid November 2011, the 4 track EP has already received a good workout from Triple J’s Friday night Shuffle, FBI’s Sunset, and has cast a spell of seduction over the general clubbing public.
Remixes in the last few months which have skyrocketed, including VAN SHE and MAJOR LAZER, have only helped to build their online profile, which has translated to direct tours across the country. It’s safe to say that the ball is well and truly in motion for these young Sydney upstarts.
Supports from the ever talented LEWIS CANCUT, and DAKTAL who are now called JAKUBI performing live, plus supports from the likes of SWICK, TRANTER, TOMDERSON, and MAT CANT it’s safe to say this party is sure to be one you don’t want to miss!
