Flume announces departure from What So Not
Championed Australian duo What So Not will soon no longer be a duo. Citing differences in creative directions, Flume will be handing the full time duties over to Emoh Instead. While Emoh has been the sole performer for the production pair for over a year now, news that the two long time friends would be releasing the last of their collaborative music through a forthcoming EP is the only silver-lining here. Unfortunately, the trap community is no stranger to some of its finest leaving popular production groups to pursue solo careers; the departure of TNGHT still stings from their similar sudden break-up. This time, though, the brand lives on.
I’m writing today with news regarding What So Not. For those that didn’t know, what so not has always been a collaborative project that I’ve doing with my friend Chris, aka Emoh Instead. Over the last while, Emoh and I have been moving in different directions creatively, we haven’t made any music together in quite a while. Our final joint project is a soon-to-be-released EP that we completed last year. That will be the last what so not project I’ll be creatively involved with.
Emoh’s been the sole touring member of What So Not for over a year now and hats off to him, he’s done an amazing job playing to crowds around the world and here at home. I know he’ll continue to slay it, as far as the live shows go nothing has changed, go see him play.
I want to thank Emoh for the time, effort and friendship that he always put into What So Not. While I will no longer be creatively involved I wish him the best of luck moving forward as he takes the reigns and steers the project into the future.
I also want to thank you, the fans, for making all of this What So Not stuff possible in the first place. We started this project from my bedroom studio at my parents house, to see it grow like this has been an amazing experience. I’m always so humbled by the support you’ve shown us, for all my musical projects. While there are a lot of great memories with WSN, i feel its time for me to let this go.
