As the collaborative side project of Australia’s Flume and Emoh Instead, What So Not have always produced a very unique, almost experimental brand of bass music. Today though, they are taking it to a whole different level on their new EP, The Quack. In the span of two tracks, What So Not combine their characteristicly crunchy rhythms with 808s and synthesizers set to the duck mode, creating a truly one-of-a-kind lesson in the combination of house, grime, hip hop and bass music. Stream both tracks and read the boys explanations after the break, and pick up The Quack EP on iTunes via OWSLA / Sweat It Out.
iTunes: What So Not – The Quack EP
The Quack is everything we love about this project. Create the strangest sound possible & turn it into an infectious rhythm. It’s a stomper with character, not your everyday 808 banger. It’s raw and real!

High You Are was an experiment. We wanted to take the concept of groove based house & push it to the extreme. Something that could hold its own, against the biggest ‘EDM’ hit, without compromising the feel & soul. The power to make people move, not just fist pump.
