It’s an all Aussie affair today with this knocking club edit of Iggy Azalea, courtesy of Adelaide’s
Man of The Moment Motez. In preparation of a US tour that he’s announcing tomorrow, he’s giving away this ace edit of Azalea’s Fancy. In similar fashion to his ‘Gas Pedal‘ re-work, he relies heavily on his prowess of thumping basslines and jacking drums. There’s a nifty little half-time section in the intro that he re-introduces again in the second breakdown, and he even sneaks in a couple of air horns on the second drop just for good measure. Be on the lookout for Motez to be coming to a city near you this summer.
Happy hump day kids!
We have a huge exclusive for you today, as we’re proud to bring you the premiere of AC Slater‘s remix to Motez “Own Up” – coming soon on Aussie imprint Sweat It Out. The already stellar original boasted jackin piano house with melodic chords and soulful vocals – but AC took it the club and gave it the “NIGHT BASS” treatment. The product is a bass heavy roller that perfectly executes its beefy overhaul while still delivering the uplifting tones of the original. Don’t just take our word for it – the remix already has gained support from the likes of Tchami, Annie Mac and the Bixel Boys… listen below!

LA’s genre-bending duo, Vindata, is undeniably on the rise. With an outstanding self-released EP and a handful of remixes already in the bag, the duo has been gaining recognition across the blogosphere for their soulful, melody-rich brand of future bass with pop sensibilities. They now gives us a very diverse guest mix featuring a few of their own tracks, as well as some jams from the likes of Cosmo’s Midnight, Breach, Trippy Turtle, and Dark Sky, amongst others. Keep tabs on Vindata as they are set to release a few remixes/edits, and their …For One to Follow EP is coming on March 4th via Kastle‘s Symbols Recordings.
It may be Fall in the States but down in Australia the Spring season is in full effect. And today we’ve got a double dose of Spring time Aussie love featuring Melbourne’s Owl Eyes and Adelaide’s Motez. Owl Eyes has geared up to release her new “Nightmixes” remix EP which features an all star cast of remixers (Playmode, The Aston Shuffle, Goldroom & Cassian, et al). One of the standout remixes from this red hot EP is the Motez remix of “Open Up”. Motez takes the sexy lullaby & flips it into Springtime dance mode. The Motez remix has hints of many genres from Deep House to Disco to Garage but in the end it’s just one big feel good House track made for dancing under the stars.
Like a phoenix rising from its ashes, the third installment of my Haute & Bothered mixtape series has arrived after a year’s hiatus. The aesthetic draws heavily from certain tracks that disavow basic genre umbrellas, and after crawling out of the deep house black hole that I found myself in the last year, it seemed right to enter the autumnal equinox with a grip of new tracks that subscribe to this mantra from the likes of Curses, Canblaster, SCNTST, as well as an original track from myself mixed into the fray.
Hot on the heels of one of the hottest dance tracks of the moment, “Desert Night”, RÜFÜS unleashes a heavy cargo of remixes featuring a who’s who of proper House producers. With five sure fire remixes by Jesse Rose, Motez, Victor Lassance, James Curd & Avon Stringer, you’ll have no problem shifting the mood to whatever is feelin’ right. The “Desert Night” remixes have got you covered.
“Desert Night” is available on iTunes June 21st (Pre order HERE). ”Desert Night” is the 2nd single from ATLAS, the debut album from RÜFÜS. Available in Australia August 9th on Sweat it Out.
