The versatile producer/DJ, MOTSA, from Vienna, Austria, has been delivering world-class original tracks and remixes since his first release just eleven months ago. Already supported by luminaries such as Sasha, Steve Lawler, and John Digweed, this gifted rising star is seeing success with his deep, soulful brand of bass heavy house that’s uniquely his own. MOTSA has now come through with this flawless mix that brings back the vibes from some of my favorite warehouse parties and the like. Feel free to download the mix for safe keeping, and expect a new remix from MOTSA coming out on the Vienna-based label, Jhruza Records, in mid-June.

Politik‘s rendition brings a cool feel that adds to the diversity of the existing remixes by L D R U and ASTR.

Last year, I randomly discovered this emerging South East London duo, Howson’s Groove, and I was immediately taken in by their strikingly fresh, eclectic sound. After hearing their pair of EPs and remixes, I thought it was time for us to feature them in our guest mix series. Now Howson’s groove has delivered a captivating mix of Garage, House, and Post-Dubstep that sheds light on the increasingly sought-after UK sound. We’re looking forward to hearing more from this promising act. Enjoy!
