It’s been a long road for What So Not fans like us.  From the days when What So Not was a duo that also involved future bass pioneer Flume, to when What So Not collaborated with many other incredible artists, including Marcus Marr and George Maple, to all the times we’ve caught What So Not live (including sets at SXSW and that unforgettable countdown on NYE at SnowGlobe a few years ago), we’ve been die hard fans of the project’s sensational future bass, hip hop, and electronica. And now, this week, it’s finally happened. What So Not, aka Australia’s Emoh Instead, has finally announced a DEBUT FULL LENGTH
ALBUM. Not All The Beautiful Things will arrive on March 9th via Counter Records. The immense news comes accompanied by a transcendental new track involving Sydney’s BUOY, too. Stuck In Orbit all but shoots us into orbit with its atmospheric makeup and BUOY’s exceptionally captivating vocal prowess. It’s certainly one of What So Not’s more minimalist and ambient offerings, a restrained and more subtle, yet powerful and dramatic sprawler that strips away the very pull of gravity. We float among What So Not’s dark synths and cinematic drops, dissolving in pure bliss into its rolling waves. What So Not’s album is going to be a star studded affair, as you probably already expect. You can already pre-save and pre-order, here.

I’ve always had a soft spot for talented French producers, and the latest such Parisian artist to perk my ears and capture my devout attention is one that fittingly goes by the name DEVOTED. The producer is also a member of venerated electronic project Point Point. Today, he released a new original named Santa Fe, featuring England’s Billionaire, and I can’t resist this chill drawling, mellow stepping electronica and minimalist hip hop gem. There’s an earnest and heartfelt quality to the gently glitching, mellifluously aching ambler. You can grab the song from iTunes, here. Santa Fe left my curiosity more than piqued, so I dove into DEVOTED’s collection of tunes on Soundcloud, only to find myself gawking at the profoundly sprawling, regal clattering brilliance of his remix of cln’s Breathe, which you can stream below.
