Today, Australia’s What So Not (Chris Emerson) and rising artist Diablo (Sebastian Baldeon) share their collaborative single ‘OOGAHDAM!’ HERE via Sweat It Out and Mad Decent. An official music video, directed by Justin Frick will be revealed shortly. This infectious party record is sure to be played throughout this summer’s festival circuit. ‘OOGAHDAM!’ is the first collaboration from What So Not & Diablo, birthed from a 4am home studio session, it ventures into a [way] “uptempo jump up” anthem.
“For me 2019 is about being free and spontaneous,” says Chris Emerson, the Australian artist, producer and DJ aka What So Not. “It’s getting back to: This feels right for this moment. Let’s put it out in the world now.” It’s a big change for the artist who last year made his biggest, boldest statement yet with the release of ‘Not All the Beautiful Things’ and continues with this single,‘OOGAHDAM!’ made with producer/DJ Diablo. Emerging from the South Florida grunge-rap scene, the 22-year-old prodigy Diablo cultivates a sound that combines hip-hop, punk, trash-metal, and EDM. This young phenom has already collaborated with legends such as Lil Pump, Smokepurpp, Lil Xan, Kodak Black, and Wifisfuneral. Producing and co-writing Lil Pump’s ‘Boss’ has put Diablo in the center of a revolution, one that The New York Times has called “the most vital and disruptive new movement in hip-hop, thanks to rebellious music, volcanic energy and occasional acts of malevolence.”
‘OOGAHDAM!’ is out now via Sweat It Out and Mad Decent.
