When it comes to sound design and selection, there are leaders and there are followers. As it turns out What So Not and RL Grime both happen to fall under the former. Some producers are out there looking recreate sounds and synths used on already successful tracks while a whole other class of them take risks, think outside the box and look to innovate. The combination of Emoh Instead and Flume as What So Not and the multi-faceted producer that is RL Grime (who is also responsible for the production under the Clockwork moniker) has taken this track by storm and unleashed an absolute MONSTER. The track contains everything from big melodic builds to booming 808s and a brass band breakdown that all seems to work absolutely seamlessly. I can only imagine what kinda damage this does to dance floors in a live setting but I’m surely hoping to find out soon.
