It’s hard to pick a standout song from the latest offering from Sydney-turned-global dance commander What So Not. Over the course of Anomaly’s eleven tracks, he establishes himself as the leader in abstract electronica, building lush soundscapes that explore a third-dimensional sonic realm, while anchoring each tune with searing hooks from some of the most recognisable voices in Australia and beyond. To borrow an old trope, it’s a fully fucking immersive listen.
What So Not’s compositional talent, it could be argued, is matched or even exceeded by his ability in bringing out the best from his collaborators. Shepherding the silky vocals of Lucy Lucy on ‘Bad Piano’ in one hand, while harnessing Oliver Tree’s untamable spitting on ‘Mr Regular’ in the other, is no small feat. And it’s this collaborative prowess that brings us to the video below.
