What So Not: Trust + Buried

Sydney producer Chris Emerson aka Emoh Instead has been doing just fine on his own with What So Not since musical partner Flume's departure in early 2015 from the project they co-founded in 2010. (Flume is not doing so bad himself.)

The stellar EP 'Divide & Conquer' was released almost a year ago to great acclaim. Two superb videos directed by fellow Sydney creative Leticia Dare were created for the outstanding tracks "Buried" and "Trust" (the latter brand new clip features American model/Alvin Ailey trained dancer Shaun Ross whose unique beauty and immense charisma makes it even more memorable.)

"Buried" is a flawless collaboration with Australian artist George Maple and Atlanta rapper Rome Fortune.  On "Trust", Scottish singer/songwriter/dj/producer BURNS provides the gorgeous vocals which have distinct echoes of Usher''s gem "Climax" from his 2012 "Looking 4 Myself" album.

There are four shows remaining in the U.S. and Canada this weekend.
August 12 - 27 he'll be performing in continental Europe and the UK.
And between September 23 and November 25 there are a string of gigs back home in Australia.
