Electronic music act What So Not collaborates with Australian act DMA’S on a thunderous new alternative dance release titled, “The Change” which is available to stream/download now via Sweat It Out/Counter Records.
What So Not – The Change (feat. DMA’S)
Wasting no time, “The Change” opens with a fast-paced rhythm and spit-fire lyrics that work in tandem with the beat. The track infuses alternative sounds with a techno drum and bass line making it a true one-of-a-kind stunner. This release comes after a yearlong hiatus by What So Not and delivers heart-pounding energy that will fuel listeners and not leave them disappointed.
“I met Johnny at their studio – a small room next to a noisy inner-city road, above Wa pub, with no sound insulation. We (somehow) never met but clicked instantly, discussing life on the road, COVID & found commonality on our all-time favorite artists. The first thing we made is pretty much the track you hear. Johnny liked our little idea so much he decided to get the whole band involved & a couple of days later we tracked Tommy & brought Mason in for some extra pieces. I feel like this record is one the two of us have always wanted to make but never had the right pieces of the puzzle, until now.”Chris Emerson aka What So Not
“Emoh and I had never met before the day of our first session but quickly bonded over synths, production gear, The Chemical Brothers, The Prodigy, and Underworld. Being from such different songwriting worlds really made this a great collaboration for me. Once we got Tommy and Mason on the track after that first day of writing we knew we were onto something special and new for both of us.”Johnny Took from the DMA‘S
