This music video is dope as hell, just like the audio was when it first dropped. The extremely far-out, trippy, animated futuristic visuals are the perfect ‘vision’ for the out of control combination of sounds and feels by this group of next level producers. I’d really love to see more collaborations by these four, shit

After countless hours spent honing his sound, KRANE released his debut LP, Fallout, in October 2017. The 10-track album is the culmination of years of listening to and creating music, and was met with high praise from fans, fellow musicians and publications around the world. The producer has followed up the massive release with an accompanying cross-country tour. We caught up with KRANE to hear how the tour is going so far and what’s coming up in 2018.
What can attendees of the FALLOUT tour expect from your shows?
This is the most me performances to date. Tons of old and new KRANE, and a lot of exclusive edits, remixes and unreleased tunes. The sets are dynamic, and don’t just stay within one kind of sound. MYRNE, Slumberjack and Alexander Lewis are all incredible performers as well, and we’ll have a few surprises on stage for people as well. Have also worked to create a new set of visuals to accompany the music – overall I think people should be very excited.
What are you most excited for with this tour? Any dates you’re particularly looking forward to?
I mean, I can’t pick any one city. Because this is my first headline tour, I feel like the crowds have been more exuberant, open-minded and just wanted to have fun compared to any prior show I’ve played. The energy has been incredible and Im just excited to bring the show to as many people as I can. Though.. if I had to pick a fav it might be Austin, because I get to gorge myself on BBQ the next day…
What has reception of your debut LP been like in the few months since its release?
Above and beyond what I could have hoped for – really. I was worried with putting out so much content at once it’d invite a lot of critique – and while there has been some, it’s filled me with excitement to hear how much it’s resonated with my fans. It’s very heartwarming, and I think people are finding their own story within the album and that’s fantastic.
After part one of the FALLOUT tour wraps up, what are your plans for the remainder of 2018?
More collabs, more remixes, another LP or album (in the works), and just finding more and more ways to serve my listeners, who are truly the most valuable part of this whole project.

In addition to this announcement, What So Not released the second single from the forthcoming album, “Stuck In Orbit” featuring Buoy. The five-and-a-half-minute emotive piece beautifully flaunts the artist’s top-notch production, set off by gorgeous vocals from Buoy. If “Be Ok Again” and “Stuck In Orbit” are any indication of what the world can expect from What So Not’s debut album, we’re in for a real treat.
Years of cultivating a distinctive, heady bass sound have culminated into KRANE‘s debut album Fallout. The expansive project has been in the works for some time, during which he compiled all his influences into a cohesive body of work which he states represents “much of my personal sound and background developed over the years of listening to and creating music.” Diving deeper than the average trap artist, KRANE sought to make an album that would be a full expression of him, beyond just music, drawing inspiration from “the aesthetics of movies, television and literature” he enjoys as well.
Fallout thus resulted in a ten-piece collection of heavy, yet enthralling numbers. KRANE wastes little time in reaching high levels of energy. After a smooth “Chemical,” which offers a more “mellowed” soundscape that is warmed by Ahsha & Lemay’s vocal contribution, the Bay Area producer hops right into a festival-ready “Next World.” The QUIX-assisted record is a minimal, yet dramatic trap effort with a cinematic climax at the end wrought by strings samples and buzzing chords.
KRANE truly demonstrates his roots in the wild side of the bass realm through Fallout. A wide array of its compositions are made for the dance space, and make for an invigorating listening in any environment. “Hollow (ft. SLUMBERJACK),” for example, plays around with Eastern-inspired melodies that pep up the lower frequencies. Spitfire verses by Nick Row paired with tingling breakdowns and heavy drops makes “PCP” one of the weightiest cuts on the LP. “Forgotten” fosters a futuristic atmosphere, aided by retro-inspired synthesizers and subtle vocoded vocal accents.
However, the bass maven’s softer side shines on this album as well. He uses a future bass medium for tracks of this variety on Fallout, and pairs it with an assortment of melodic progressions that conjure sentimentality. Through its closer “Nobody But You,” KRANE paints an almost poignant mental picture that is amplified by soaring melodies and gentle rhythms. “Titan,” which features Nolan van Lith, uses arpeggios and titillating highs to create hair-raising effect. His “Away From You” interlude shows off his jazzy side, as sweeping notes and celestial sampling make even ambient sound charged.
Fallout was released on October 26. Purchase the album here.
SLUMBERJACK has arrived with the highly-anticipated VIP rip of their “Naked” collaboration with one of bass musics Queens, Alison Wonderland. The version you’re about to experience has been played exclusively in SLUMBERJACK’s set. It brings a refreshing yet dramatic and hard-hitting feel while incorporating dynamics of the original. This is an Anthem. The heavy bass

Few cities are as blessed by the EDM gods as Los Angeles.

What So Not is starting to heat up in the second half of 2017, returning to an occupied touring itinerary that kicked off at Coachella and has brought him from Paris to Tokyo this summer to crowd test new music. Following last year’s RL Grime and Skrillex-assisted mega-collaboration “Waiting,” Emoh went radio silent with a much-deserved break in Australia — a short hiatus that effectively churned out the producer’s debut studio album. Now, according to What So Not, his record has been completed, and is presumably in post-production. To tease his fans’ insatiable appetites ahead of the forthcoming album, the Aussie beat-maker has shared a new remix package for 2016’s Divide & Conquer EP, out now via OWSLA and Sweat It Out, lead by a highly-anticipated Noisia remix of the EP’s title track.
The Dutch electronic legends lay down a thunderous drum n’ bass treatment on the remix EP’s only “Divide & Conquer,” rework. The rest of the collection covers inventive new versions of “Lone,” and “Trust.” Slumberjack proctor a vibrant future bass rendition of “Lone,” while Ribongia offers up a tribal, textured take on the track. Fellow Sweat It Out affiliate Plastic Plates drops a jazzy, funk-inspired “Trust” rework, and MYRNE takes the track in a heavily trap-leaning direction, offering a wide variety of fresh new remixes on What So Not’s first official solo endeavor.
This compilation features one of the best releases of the year so far. Slow Hours’ remix of ‘Lone’ is one of the most impressively produced tracks I have ever heard. The pure energy, grittiness and power behind their remix is enough to give this compilation a 5 star rating, but how do the other featured
