What So Not is the collaborative side project of Australian sensations Flume and Emoh, dedicated to the exploration of genres and sounds usually well outside of their respective production and feel. With a multitude of “trapstyle” and experimentally-driven 808-filled tracks released on their SoundCloud, they are continuously pushing the boundaries of modern electronic sound, and it has created a powerful niche for them in the current trap scene. Their latest EP entitled ‘The Quack’ has been released under the prestigious OWSLA label as well as Sweat it Out records, and is already generating a lot of support despite it’s release on June 14th. The first track, titled ‘The Quack’, is an amalgamation of drunken bass stabs and mind-numbing bass melodies, similar to that of Mr. Carmack but with a very recognizable What So Not sound and percussion. The second tune, ‘High You Are’, is quite contrary to the first; it travels through ambient sounds and mesmerizing dutch-house-esque synths until an explosive break of whistles, cowbell, and jungle noises erupt over its 4-on-the-floor house melody. Take my word, you can expect to be hearing these tunes (especially ‘The Quack’) everywhere this summer, so be sure to support these two amazing artists and purchase their EP on it’s release June 14th!
