Motez is a name that needs little introduction. Having crafted some of the most popular originals and remixes in dance music over his illustrious career, garnering support across the airwaves of Radio 1, Beats 1 and Triple J amongst others, the Iraqi-born producer returns with ‘The Future,’ a summery jam featuring London-based duo Antony & Cleopatra.
Moving away from his usual club-friendly productions, ‘The Future’ is a relaxed and soulful house record that, together with Antony & Cleopatra’s vocals and a twenty-piece children’s choir, encapsulates a sense of purity and serenity often lacking in much of electronic music today. Antony and Cleopatra, whose signature call and response vocals delicately form the topline, provide the track with depth and lyrical interest, underpinned by Motez’s deft production.
Taken as a whole, the record exemplifies Motez’s immense versatility as a producer, and is illustrative of his ability to capture a particular mood in three and a half minutes.
Motez will soon embark on ‘The Future’ tour, which will see him perform his unique live show across North America at HARD Summer, Night Bass and Brooklyn’s House Of Yes. He will then return for his biggest Australia tour to date as he gears up for the second half of the year. Stay up to date with all new announcements via his socials.
