What So Not & DMA’S Join Forces on ‘The Change’

What So Not links with fellow Aussies DMA’S for ‘The Change’. If the reception of to the then unreleased single at crowd was anything to go by, fans of both acts are going to have this on repeat.

What So Not provides a rave like production for DMA’S to apply what they do best. The track is a welcomed return for What So Not as he detailed taking a break early last year. ‘The Change’ marks What So Not’s first original single since the 2019 collaboration ’20:25′ with Flux Pavilion.

What So Not says: “I met Johnny at their studio – a small room next to a noisy inner-city road, above a pub, with no sound insulation. We (somehow) never met but clicked instantly, discussing life on the road, COVID & found commonality on our all-time favourite artists. The first thing we made is pretty much the track you hear. Johnny liked our little idea so much he decided to get the whole band involved & a couple of days later we tracked Tommy & brought Mason in for some extra pieces. I feel like this record is one the two of us have always wanted to make but never had the right pieces of the puzzle, until now.”

Johnny Took from the DMA’S adds“Emoh and I had never met before the day of our first session but quickly bonded over synths, production gear, The Chemical Brothers, The Prodigy and Underworld. Being from such different songwriting worlds really made this a great collaboration for me. Once we got Tommy and Mason on the track after that first day of writing we knew we were onto something special and new for both of us.”
