To kick off 2021, internationally renowned Australian electronic artist, producer and DJ What So Not joins hip hop legends Run The Jewels, remixing their hit single JU$T featuring Pharrell Williams and Zack De La Rocha. The original has had over 20 millions streams and is taken from the duo’s critically acclaimed album ‘RTJ4.’
Support for ‘RTJ4’ includes SPIN 2020 Artist of the Year; Album of the Year from NME, Flood Magazine and Double J; making best albums of 2020 lists from Billboard, Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, Complex, Clash, Dork, GQ, New York Times, and many many more. Released in June 2020 to massive acclaim, ‘RTJ4’ sparked a tremendous amount of cultural dialogue, in no small part because its themes resonate so closely with the current moment. The album also includes features from Mavis Staples, 2 Chainz, Josh Homme, Greg Nice, and DJ Premier. Run The Jewels recently released No Save Point, taken from one of the years most anticipated video game- “Cyberpunk 2077”.
Says What So Not of the remix: “For me, as a producer, Run The Jewels are one of the most exciting groups out there. Starting as a bootleg, I was honoured to get the nod to put this record out, not only with RTJ, but also my childhood heroes Zack and Pharrell”
Collaborating with the likes of Skrillex, SLUMBERJACK, and San Holo, What So Not has been streamed over 100 million times in the past year alone and has played shows and festivals spanning 45 countries and 4 continents. Over the past few months he has played Castaway (Perth), Factory Summer Festival (Brisbane) and is on the line up for Yours and Owls, This That and Wildlands festivals.
Praise for ‘RTJ4‘
“Offering tough, prescient words of truth to a nation in crisis, Run the Jewels deliver their greatest album yet” – VARIETY
“This is 2020 in audio form, an incendiary album that sounds like it was written and recorded last weekend, but built to last long after whatever is about to happen happens.” – FAST COMPANY
“The agility of the pair’s respective mic skills is no surprise to longtime listeners, but the fact that it’s often directed at our flawed institutions — from the ‘slave masters’ on our dollar bills in ‘Ju$t’ to, yes, police brutality in ‘yankee and the brave (ep. 4)’ — feels like a shot of adrenaline during a moment in which so many of us are searching for an emotional release.” – BILLBOARD
“Few musical artists are as well equipped to speak to the unrest in the United States right now quite as well as Run the Jewels” – NEWSWEEK
“its energy and words uncannily designed for right now.” – WALL STREET JOURNAL
