Motez’ soundscape pushes the boundaries of your regular house producer, going way back before he
was making wholesome, wall-to-wall club cuts and rocking festivals stages. His classical piano know how
and clear influences of the 90’s allows him to flex his skills and musical-taste across all of his releases,
chalking up six Hype Machine #1s, an ARIA Gold single and dropping official remixes for Disclosure, Sam
Smith, Goldlink and Ellie Goulding. Motez has also joined Diplo & Friends, Beats-1 Radio and triple j Mix
Up to lay down his favorite selections.
Motez’ back catalogue across Sweat It Out, Food Music and Universal/AATW speaks for itself. His streak
of infectious dance-driven releases continued on from 2016’s ‘Down Like This’ ft. Tkay Maidza to 2017’s
‘Praise’, which led him to his first ARIA Certified Gold single, ‘The Future’ ft. Antony & Cleopatra. Three
years in the making, ‘The Future’ is Motez’ most personal offering to date, receiving support from BBCR1,
KCRW, Live105 and triple j, and amassing over 12 millions streams.
For Motez’ latest EP, ‘Late Thoughts’, he delves back into the club tipped sonisphere from which he has
crafted his reputation with a two-track offering. ‘Visceral’ has received early support from triple j with
spins from Richard Kingsmill and The Aston Shuffle, while the tech-house driven ‘Roll Out’ was
premiered with Anna Lunoe on Beats-1, followed by spins from Billy Kenny on UK’s Kiss Fresh and BBC
Radio 1 figureheads Pete Tong & Danny Howard.
On the road and to the stage, Motez has played to thousands at Splendour In The Grass, Holy Ship, EDC,
HARD Summer and Electric Forest, fronted main support duties for Disclosure, RÜFÜS DU SOL and
Fatboy Slim, and filled clubs all over Australia, North America and Europe. Between his own releases and
remixes, Motez’ last 12 months has included a sold out Australian ‘The Future’ Tour, another two trips
to North America and a return to the UK & Europe. Motez welcomed 2018 with a sold out national
festival tour with Fatboy Slim & Gorgon City, a main-stage slot on Mountain Sounds Festival and his
biggest North America tour, including Electric Forest & Splash House. Next up, Motez returns to some of
his favorite clubs across Australia in support his ‘Late Thoughts’ Club EP, reuniting with fans for a run of
intimate and extended sets, going late, dark and deep. This is one tour not to be missed.
