non-Valentines Valentines Day edition of The Dirt, the ever illustrious Bones and myself have prepped 10 tracks ready to carry you into this Hallmark weekend. Whether you’re making whoopee with your lover or drinking wine by yourself (same), we hope you’ll enjoy this playlist, free of charge.

Wax Motif really just knows how to work with music. Whether it’s deep or energetic, mainstream or underground, seems like the native Australian has his ears to the ground with how to make things work. With two identities, one as the more mainstream Wax Motif, and the other as the deeply underground Playmode, it comes as no surprise that he’s been putting in some serious studio time. Most notably through the twittersphere we’ve seen that a lot of it has been with Destructo… and some rappers… so I can’t wait to see what officially comes from all that.
He just dropped his mega remix of the brand new Tinashe track, ’2 On’ with an amazing feature from Schoolboy Q. Totally club ready and indubitably made for girls and guys to get down to (or get really down to… hehe) I’m hoping this energetic fusion of club / R&B / house is a sign of things to come from Wax Motif.
To really turn up the season of giving, our friends over at Main Course have bundled up a gargantuan gift package with originals, remixes and VIP edits from the likes of Astronomar, Bot, Clockwork, AC Slater, His Majesty Andre, Wuki, Wax Motif, Neoteric and more… read below what they had to say about the giveawat and everything thats included!

Our good homies DJ Skeet Skeet aka Yung Skeeter & Wax Motif have teamed up to do a colossal 2-track EP and we’re getting the exclusive sneak-premiere of the EP’s diabolical techno b-side called “Hush Hush” before its released tomorrow on Dim Mak Records!
Producers YUNG SKEETER and WAX MOTIF join forces on the 2-track release “Next To Me.” Two monstrous sounds collide on this release, packing a double punch with tracks “Next to Me” featuring Nevaeh and “Hush Hush,” bringing forth music that is as brisk as it is fiery hot. “Next To Me” takes listeners on a new high built with an aggressive electro crunch smoothed out by airy female vocals. “Hush Hush” delves into deeper house territory with a pinch of the trademark Dim Mak electro sound.

Celebrating their eighth release today, the relatively new Main Course label has firmly established themselves as one of the brightest imprints we’ve seen this year. Label boss Neoteric teams up with Australian heavy hitter Wax Motif with a seriously pounding track in Das Machines. The package also comes with a bit shorter, slightly more ‘epic’ dub that’s just as mighty. Both are available for free download, however, Main Course wants to feed their artists as well, so you also have option to support them on Beatport & iTunes if you feel up for it. For those of you in Australia, fellow Main Course label boss Astronomar is gearing up to start his tour Down Under in just a few days. More info + music video after the jump.
We’ve had an absolute blast curating the WIDE AWAKE Art Car Stage at New York and Chicago the past month, and this weekend, it’s time for the holy grail of Electric Daisy Carnival, Las Vegas. We’ve put together a great lineup for this Saturday the 22nd, with sets from GDD™ homies like Wax Motif, Bixel Boys, Craig Williams, and Astronomar, who has put together a killer minimix to give you a taste of his set Saturday night. Download the mix below, and read on for the tracklist and full GDD™ stage lineup.
One of our favorite Aussies has just written his main stage answer to the summer. The man, the myth Wax Motif has yet again created a monster; this soars into a buildup only to then let you flail across a grinding and winding bassline through the entire track. The cosmic-like breakdown then lets you catch your brain before then pushing you out into a melodic finish. Definitely worth the FREE download below….

In coming weeks, GDD™ will be joining forces with our friends around the world for collaborative editions of The Dirt. So far, we’ve teamed up with Discobelle and Stoney Roads, and this week we’ve put together a comprehensive 10-pack of tracks with our buddy Brandon over at Elektro Magazine. All 10 are available for download, so head on after the jump to see what we have in store for you this week!
With support from the likes of Tiesto, Diplo, A-Trak, Chuckie, Bart B More, Dillon Francis, Style of Eye and more it’s hard to believe Wax Motif isn’t a house-hold name yet. Over the past year he has been refining his style with several top-notch remixes and his most recent work Rebecca & Fiona – Giliap (Wax Motif remix) leaves nothing to be desired. The track is a slice of electro-house heaven reminiscent of an ‘80s electro-pop film soundtrack. Combine that with the artful use of Swedish duo Rebecca & Fiona’s sultry vocals and you’ve got a track that will be stuck in your head for the rest of the day. Big love for this Aussie.
Wax Motif, known to many as Waxy, has really built up and secured his new Big Room sound. A talented producer of many sub-genres of dance music, Waxy has released everything from GDD™ favorite “Go Deep” on Southern Fried Records to “Particle” on Laidback Luke‘s Mixmash Records. Lately it seems as if he’s found his niche in Electro suited for main stage, as evident in this firing new freebie released by the kind folks over at Fool’s Gold ClubHouse. “CTRL 66″ finds it’s home on the 2nd ClubHouse compilation, and it’s a biggie.
