For a time, it was interesting to know that What So Not was a project that allowed Flume to step outside of his lane and really let loose. At the time, the Australian duo of Emoh Instead and Flume made a huge impact, with bits like “Jaguar” and “Tell Me” (alongside RL Grime) setting festivals ablaze. In early 2015, Flume announced that he was leaving the group to work on his solo bits, but that hasn't stopped Emoh at all; his new single, “Lone,” is the first original What So Not release sans-Flume, but fear not: Emoh's got this.
Linking with fellow Australian GANZ and the beautiful vox of JOY, “Lone” is an early spring anthem of the highest caliber. It blends a massive, crowd-pleasing drop with a more sultry, pop-y vocal that is downright inescapable. It makes perfect sense that Skrillex's OWSLA imprint would gravitate to this; the sound is tailor-made for the forward-thinking imprint.
You can grab “Lone” on April 8. Stream the track in full up above.
