Motez has been in the public eye since Sweat It Out first exposed him to the world in The Quack remix EP, and since then he’s managed to one-up himself with each and every production. Don’t think for a minute, however, that his close affiliation with the What So Not and their label make him anything like the wealth of Flume clones scouring the nation right now. Motez instead brings a unique and undeniably devious approach to house music, with a depth that will earn him notoriety for years to come. From his stunning Sage The Gemini flip to the brilliant Bodywork/Promise Me EP, there’s no doubt in my mind that – along with Alison Wonderland and Cosmo’s Midnight – Motez is part of Australia’s next major wave of exports.
Own Up is the debut single from this Adelaide producer, and is a welcome evolution of a sound I’ve come to love dearly over the past 7 months. Look for it June 13th on Sweat It Out.
