Words by Tom Disalvo June 21, 2024

On top of supplying bangers, What So Not has taken it upon himself to save the Aussie dance scene.

Really makes you feel pretty lazy, huh. Well, he hasn’t done it all on his own (the song at least)…

Linking up with Benson and Lucy Lucy, What So Not is finally sharing the euphoric track which sways between dark house beats and this hypnotising breaks. ‘Lights Go Out’ is no fluke – it’s been road tested around the world over the past couple of years.

“‘Lights Go Out’ is one of the most requested IDs of my sets in recent years! This tune was birthed from FM synthesis and true friendship,” says What So Not. “Benson letting me sleep on his couch all those years ago so I could afford my first ever gigs in Melbourne, and Lucy living down the street from my parents, doing some of her first solo recordings with me in my bedroom studio. It’s been a long time coming for everyone hounding my DMs about it and now it’s finally here for the world!”

On top of this, WSN is also looking to shine a light on the next batch of talented youngsters coming through ranks with his Dance Dance Revival Tour which kicks off tonight. Over socials, he’s been putting the call out for local producers to come through and open for his sets around the country, giving them the opportunity that they might normally get at festivals.

“The local scene in Australia has been hit HARD and it’s a sign of the world to come… but it’s not without hope. There’s new faces emerging and I would love to put them on my shows. Dance Dance Revival is about hatching a plan to revive our clubs and cities and pay it forward to the next generation of DJs and producers in Australia. I’m even going to be playing super rare downtempo opening sets to get punters through the door early.”

It may or may not have even spawned a rave at Bunnings…
