What So Not

From down under come a duo that really does flip traditional EDM on its head with their bass heavy trap inspired beats. What So Not, comprised of Flume and Emoh Instead, burst onto the scene with their song High You Are and Jaguar, but their history begins way before. Some early favorites of mine are their remix of Major Lazer’s Get Free and Van She’s Idea Of Happiness, and honestly everything these two have done is quite decent. But honestly, when mixing the unique styles of Flume and Emoh together, what else would you expect. Now signed to Skrillex’s OWSLA label, What So Not has reached even higher highs (not that they care of course) and their tracks Jaguar, Tell Me, and Touched have become staples in the alternative bass arena. They have been my favorite artist for some time now due to their unique take on dance music and the very distinct What So Not sounds they produce for their songs. What So What is my personal #1 must see at Paradiso overtaking Bassnectar at #2. They are one of those rare artists that gives me a lot of hope for the future of EDM. They are progressing the genre as a whole and creating a bright future for ravers everywhere in very dark rooms. But at Paradiso, we get to see them out in the open at one of the premier venues in the world. Don’t miss the opportunity to catch What So Not this year at Paradiso.
