What So Not- OWSLA After Dark Mix

Just when I said that Wave Racer was the best thing to come out of Australia the boys of What So Not release this tasty hour long mix for BBC1 Xtra as a part of OWSLA‘s After Dark series.  The group comprised of Flume and Emoh Instead have been busy in the studio producing highly anticipated tracks with Skrillex, A$AP Rocky, and RL Grime.owlsa

This mix just solidifies the group’s spot as one of the hottest duos to look out for in 2014.

This mix features a more atonal style than Wave Racer’s melodic flourishes and frenetic rhythms. If Wave Racer is akin to dropping acid with a pre-meltdown Brian Wilson, What So Not is like taking shots with a post-meltdown Robert Downey Jr. (or something).

With tracks ranging from hip hop and trap to 80’s classics (seriously they drop Toto’s Africa) this mix is all across the board and we’re diggin it.

A stand out track that was featured on both mixes is this distorted trap (?) clip from Portland’s Eprom. I am obsessed.

I may have spoken too soon in my article yesterday. It’s clear that Wave Racer and What So Not are on the same level when it comes to innovative new takes on the genre. So who do you think is better?
