Hailing from the sandstone bedrock that is Sydney, Australia, ‘What So Not’ (formerly a collaborative project between electronica breakthrough act Flume and its remaining member, the eclectic musical powerhouse Emoh Instead) set their sights on conquering the music world with uniquely electrifying, high intensity live shows and a sound that transcends genre molds and BPMs. Their infectiously innovative take on electronic music production has since caught the attention of dance music heroes like Major Lazer, Skrillex, A-Trak, and Flosstradamus. And with boundary blurring, pacemaking crossover tracks like “Jaguar,” “High You Are,” “The Quack,” “Touched” and their monstrous collaboration with RL Grime, “Tell Me,” What So Not has quickly become a highly coveted, world renowned dance music phenomenon in its short 5 year life.
Despite WSN’s poster child, Flume, dropping out of the equation early last year, Emoh Instead has been holding the namesake down properly since adopting the project by dropping their tunes at every major festival around the world and continuing the evolution of the What So Not brand beyond just the music. Now standing as Emoh Instead’s solo venture, Emoh has been focusing on the next chapter of What So Not by collaborating with various musicians like RL Grime, George Maple, Dillion Francis, Skrillex, and 1970s rock band Toto, as well as teaming up with multiple visual artists and creative minds to submerse live crowds in a complete, one-of-a-kind, What So Not experience.
