WHAT SO NOT RELEASES HIGHLY ANTICIPATED ‘DIVIDE & CONQUER’ REMIX PACK
Sydney-turned-global phenomenon What So Not is set to deliver the highly anticipated remix pack of his 2016 EP ‘Divide & Conquer’. The debut solo EP, released in conjunction with Sweat It Out and Skrillex’s OWSLA label, has garnered over 20 million online streams with international support from triple j, Radio 1, with an abundance of online praise. The EP has been a defining moment in Chris “Emoh” Emerson’s career; seeing him further explore his own sound design, and producing purposefully articulated thematic works. The forthcoming 9 track remix package, due 16th June 2017, features a myriad of A-list producer credits including Noisia, Ribongia, SLUMBERJACK, Go Freek and Plastic Plates.
The EP opens with the highly anticipated remix of ‘Divide & Conquer’, by the Dutch trio NOISIΛ, which
fans have been begging for since it was leaked at ADE last October. The remix transcends expectations, becoming a half time DnB flip, perfectly accentuating the original bassline festival goers have been chanting the world over.
The premier single from the What So Not & Ganz collab. ‘Lone (Feat. Joy.)’ gets three hefty re-works from Slow Hours, SLUMBERJACK, and October Records stalwart Ribongia – adding a moody and atmospheric jungle edge that is an absolute highlight of the release. Rounding out the package with a colossal five interpretations of the BURNS collab ‘Trust’, care of KUURO, Loge21, MYRNE, and Sweat It Out label mates Plastic Plates & Go Freek. Plastic Plates injects funk and a sense of lightness to the release – in a complete 180 from the opening track, whilst Go Freek’s gutter tech fingerprints are hard to miss, with big crescendos and suitable drops.
2017 has already been a tremendous year for What So Not; headlining the Gobi tent at Coachella, steadily touring the world and set to close UK summer at premier London festival South West Four. Earlier this year, taking a much needed break from his touring schedule, What So Not started putting the wheels in motion for his forthcoming debut album, already hinting at a few guest features.
‘Divide & Conquer’ (Remixes) is available on Sweat It Out now.
