What So Not, the duo comprised of Emoh Instead and Flume, has just announced some sad news for fans of the group. Published a few hours ago on their Facebook page, Harley Streten, better known as Flume, revealed his departure from the collaborative project, mentioning that each member has been moving in “different directions creatively.” Harley also explained that their upcoming EP is still being released and will be the last What So Not work Flume will be involved with. It does appear that What So Not will continue to exist though, but Emoh will be the sole one leading the project. You can read the full announcement 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.
