Late Friday night, members of the EDM community were saddened by a recent post on What So Not’s Facebook page. Harley Streten, better known as Flume, announced that he was quitting the duo comprised of himself and Emoh Instead. He addressed the different creative paths the two were taking and their lack of recent collaboration, while simultaneously announcing a soon-to-be-released EP that will be the final project including Flume’s creative input. However, it doesn't come as much of a surprise to many, seeing as Harley has found massive success and a huge following for his Flume project around the world. Flume did commend his friend for all his hard efforts touring solo and encouraged fans to continue to see him slay the game live in the future. You can read the full post below.
“I’m writing today with news regarding What So Not. For those that didn’t know, what so not has always been a collaborative project that I've doing with my friend Chris, aka Emoh Instead. Over the last while, Emoh and I have been moving in different directions creatively, we haven't made any music together in quite a while. Our final joint project is a soon-to-be-released EP that we completed last year. That will be the last what so not project I'll be creatively involved with. Emoh’s been the sole touring member of What So Not for over a year now and hats off to him, he’s done an amazing job playing to crowds around the world and here at home. I know he’ll continue to slay it, as far as the live shows go nothing has changed, go see him play.
I want to thank Emoh for the time, effort and friendship that he always put into What So Not. While I will no longer be creatively involved I wish him the best of luck moving forward as he takes the reigns and steers the project into the future.
I also want to thank you, the fans, for making all of this What So Not stuff possible in the first place. We started this project from my bedroom studio at my parents house, to see it grow like this has been an amazing experience. I'm always so humbled by the support you've shown us, for all my musical projects. While there are a lot of great memories with WSN, i feel its time for me to let this go.
