All eyes are on Chris Emerson after it was announced that he would be continuing the What So Not project without former partner Flume. We sat down with him after his performance at Coachella, and his humble confidence has us excited to follow the What So Not experience as he continues to build the brand as a solo artist.

After losing member Flume (pictured above, left), avant-garde beats outfit What So Not’s remaining half Emoh (above, right, formerly Emoh Instead) released the first taste of the forthcoming Gemini EP today featuring vocals by 2014 breakout star George Maple. Chris “Emoh” Emerson is joined by his former partner Flume, listed in the [...]
The duo of Flume (pictured, left) and Emoh Instead known as What So Not is now a solo act after Flume took to his Facebook page to announce he was leaving the group, citing creative differences as the main reason. The next EP they release will be the duo’s final together. Following that, Emoh Instead will continue the act himself, [...]
RL Grime and What So Not’s Tell Me was one of the biggest trap songs of the year, and it’s now received a hot little edit courtesy of Baauer. Although the edit clocks in on the short side at less than two minutes, Baauer makes the time count with a bouncy, bass-heavy edit that features dramatic drums and chopped vocals. It isn’t [...]

Welcome, trapaholics, to this week’s Trap Tuesdays! This edition features a healthy selection of future trap and chill beats. RL Grime x What So Not – Tell Me (GANZ Flip) GANZ originally impressed me with his beautiful remix of Hyperparadise by Hermitude and Flume. The Dutchman is a downright brilliant producer, and his new remix of [...]
Turn down for what?! Pan flutes, apparently. Dutch producer GANZ lays out the exception to the rule in his (relatively) chilled-out bootleg of Tell Me from RL Grime and What So Not. For his unique take, GANZ eliminates nearly all signs of the original tune’s dirty brass section and thick low-end drops, instead opting for the ethereal [...]
It’s hard to talk about rising electronic music superstars without bringing up Flume, the breakthrough Australian DJ who has carved a style all his own and amassed a devoted fan base in the process. We spoke with him at Coachella about the “golden age” of Aussie EDM, working with Adult Swim, and his favorite remixes of his own tracks.
Tell me, why didn’t RL Grime and What So Not collaborate sooner? These titans of trap music have come together at long last for Tell Me, an absolute banger of a tune that shows off the very best that these two acts have going for them. Tell Me is filled to the brim with What So Not’s quirky, bouncy production style (which is somewhat [...]
2014 just kicked off in a big way. Following his session with rising Australian producer Flume only a few days ago, Skrillex has now hopped into the studio with A$AP Rocky and another Aussie producer, Emoh Instead who, alongside Flume, makes up the duo What So Not. The artists happened to all be in Australia after performing separate [...]
