Hear What So Not’s stadium-ready remix of Toto’s ‘Africa’

On Friday, Sydney producer What So Not announced the release date of his long-awaited debut album, Not All The Beautiful Things. 

He also dropped the album’s tracklist, which revealed that the 12-track release will feature collaborations with dance A-listers like Skrillex, San Holo, Dutch producer Dyro, and Perth mates Slumberjack. It’ll also offer the first official release his and Skrillex’s ‘Goh‘ — a track which has been bouncing around since 2014.

He’s premiered a couple of these new tracks in a recent mix for SiriusXM’s ‘The Cookout’, in among old favourites like ‘Lone’, ‘Tell Me’, and his ‘Innerbloom’ remix. But more exciting was his huge edit of Toto’s 1982 hit ‘Africa’, which comes in around the 11-minute mark after his recent single ‘Better‘.

It’s not a brand new remix by any means – What So Not has been dropping a short version of it in his sets for a few years now — but it’s the first time we’ve heard it in a mix such as this.

Listen to the full mix below, and check out the tracklist below that.
