What So Not is starting to heat up in the second half of 2017, returning to an occupied touring itinerary that kicked off at Coachella and has brought him from Paris to Tokyo this summer to crowd test new music. Following last year’s RL Grime and Skrillex-assisted mega-collaboration “Waiting,” Emoh went radio silent with a much-deserved break in Australia — a short hiatus that effectively churned out the producer’s debut studio album. Now, according to What So Not, his record has been completed, and is presumably in post-production. To tease his fans’ insatiable appetites ahead of the forthcoming album, the Aussie beat-maker has shared a new remix package for 2016’s Divide & Conquer EP, out now via OWSLA and Sweat It Out, lead by a highly-anticipated Noisia remix of the EP’s title track.
The Dutch electronic legends lay down a thunderous drum n’ bass treatment on the remix EP’s only “Divide & Conquer,” rework. The rest of the collection covers inventive new versions of “Lone,” and “Trust.” Slumberjack proctor a vibrant future bass rendition of “Lone,” while Ribongia offers up a tribal, textured take on the track. Fellow Sweat It Out affiliate Plastic Plates drops a jazzy, funk-inspired “Trust” rework, and MYRNE takes the track in a heavily trap-leaning direction, offering a wide variety of fresh new remixes on What So Not’s first official solo endeavor.
