Hailing from the sandstone bedrock that is Sydney, ‘WHAT SO NOT’ set their sights on the world in 2013. One part electronica breakthrough ‘Flume’, one part Aussie all star ‘Emoh Instead’, this young duo caused quite a stir in the year gone.
Transcending genre & BPM, their highly intense live shows & sound had them Dubbed ‘Voice of the ADD generation’. ‘7 Dollar Bill’, their debut EP, was praised by; Switch, Bag Raiders, Sinden, Boys Noize & the like.
2012 also saw an onslaught of epic What So Not remixes; Gaining the attention of A-Trak, Tiga, Flosstradamus, Nero & Diplo himself, as their future bass rework of Major Lazer’s ‘GET FREE’, scored them an official 12″ Vinyl release on Mad Decent’s Downtown label.
The love child of Brooklyn and the Internet, Baauer was born out of noise. A sound that began steeped in the 4/4 dance tradition, slowly took on hip hop tendencies until the two became one. Influenced heavily by southern hip-hop and UK bass sounds, Baauer has found himself smack dab in the middle of the electronic renaissance. He is the delectable fusion of future-crunk and leather shaken aggressively in a bottle for years and has only just opened the top to pour the mixture out.
