---------- What So Not ----------
What So Not has been spearheading Australia's latest electronica revival with boundary-pushing bass since 2011. Hailing from Sydney, What So Not dominated the city's club circuit with his dancefloor-ready heaters, including a window-shattering remix of Major Lazer's 'Get Free’, which became omnipresent at festivals around the world, since then, What So Not been Streamed over 450 million times, releasing records through Sweat It Out and Skrillex's OWSLA.
The Australian-gone-global star has now appeared on the world's grandest stages including a headline slot at Coachella’s Gobi tent & was given a hero's welcome when he returned Down Under to Headline Listen Out one of the country’s largest touring festivals.
In September What So Not released, Better, his first record of 2017 this time teaming up with LPX, solo moniker of Lizzy Plapinger of American duo MS MR. Once released Better shot to the top of the Australian alternative charts reaching number 1 in only it’s second week of release. The song was debuted live at his headline Coachella, where audiences experienced the Australian producer’s full artistic vision, a giant chrome horse on monster truck wheels rivaling a Hollywood film set.
2016 brought What So Not’s debut solo EP, Divide & Conquer, a culmination of knowledge and collection of sounds gained throughout his travels. The release sees What So Not further discarding genres while employing a consistent narrative, resulting in his most thematic work to date.
In 2016, What So Not also remixed fellow Australian breakthrough stars RÜFÜS on 'Innerbloom', resulting in a tastefully heavy reinterpretation of the nonchalant house track that has been described as “a masterpiece of a masterpiece”. The remix landed #30 on Triple J’s Hottest 100.
