Chris ‘Emoh’ Emerson seems to defy the 24-hour day.
The Australian super producer, better known as the now lone member of What So Not, is currently closing out a stretch of festival appearances, which included trips to Lollapalooza Chile and Brazil, a killer performance at Ultra Miami, and multiple stops in Western Canada.
In promotion of his long-awaited debut album Not All The Beautiful Things, released earlier this month, Emerson will bring his The Beautiful Things tour back to the U.S. with shows from coast to coast, starting at the Fox Theater in Oakland on Thursday, April 4.
The 12-track album is a tightly woven collection of collaborations.
Johns, a fellow Australian artist well-known for his time as the frontman for the rock band Silverchair, also lent his vocals for Same Mistakes and the San Holo collaboration effort If You Only Knew. ljkl[oiuj pu
Heavier standouts, flush with elements of deep house and future bass What So Not fans revere, come in the form of opener Warlord with Slumberjack, Beautiful featuring Winona Oak, Goh with Skrillex & KLP, and Bottom End with Dyro.
If all of this weren’t enough, Emerson also teamed up with the classic rock band Toto for We Keep on Running. This rock-bass anthem is great, and the artists enjoyed bridging the age gap for an old-school, grind-it-out recording session.
Emerson controlled every element of this project, including the design and production elements of the tour.
“I didn’t want to put anything out that doesn’t cohesively match the essence of the songs,” Emerson said. “We’re creating this world that people can step into.”
I for one can’t wait to step into this world.
