After performing to packed crowds across Australia and abroad in 2018, Motez today returns to deliver his newest certified tune ‚Steady Motion‘ feat. Kwaye via Sweat It Out Records. A beautiful continuation of his certified ARIA Gold record ‚The Future‘ feat. Antony & Cleopatra, today’s release represents the next step in a big year of new music for the much-loved Adelaide producer.
A testament to Motez’ enduring ability to deliver infectious house tracks, ‚Steady Motion‘ is no exception. A master of melding electronica and clever melodies into dance-inducing rhythms, the track is an affectionate nod to classic house as a funk-driven bassline and drum section collectively build over time. The track features the grandeur vocal stylings of Kwaye & string composition from Grammy award-winning composer Davide Rossi (Coldplay, Jon Hopkins, Goldfrapp, Flight Facilities) – flawlessly complimenting the overarching production and together providing an honest commentary on the helplessness one can feel when stuck in a seeming rut or loop cycle and trying to break free.
‚Steady Motion‘ arrives as the first taste of new music from the Baghdad-via-Adelaide artist since his nod to the club world with the club-leaning 2018 Late Thoughts EP. His hit ‚The Future‘ featuring Antony & Cleopatra has amassed close to 20 million streams since its release, receiving support both worldwide from the likes of BBC Radio 1 and KCRW and hometown praise from community radio and triple j. On the stage, Motez continues to fill dance floors to capacity, last year undertaking a mammoth tour around the country and a string of North American summer shows.
Not only garnering the support of the industry, Motez has found himself consistently in the company of music’s finest, including Australian rap sensation Tkay Maidza on ‚Down Like This‘, house maestro Wax Motif and West London’s MC Scrufizzer. His ingenious and innovative remixes for the likes of Goldlink, Disclosure and Ellie Goulding have earned him praise from dance icons such as Destructo, Justin Martin, Diplo and Grammy Award winner Flume, as well as guest slots on globally renowned radio shows Diplo & Friends, Beats1 Radio and triple j Mix Up Exclusives.
A master of providing timeless dance hits that his peers can drop into their sets and fans can drop down to in the club, Motez continues to climb his way to the top as one of Australia’s most loved producers. Making his way across the nation with a number of festival appearances, including Melbourne’s For The Love, RCC Fringe in Adelaide & Newcastle’s Up Down Festival to name a few, ‚Steady Motion‘ enters the world today as the first taste of what’s to come in 2019.
