MOTEZ DROPS NEW SINGLE FT. TKAY MAIDZA

Towards the end of last year, Tkay Maidza and I got together in a local Adelaide studio and worked on some new gear. No agenda or goal; just laying some top-lines over a few beats I had worked on and seeing what we could come up with. Since then I've been working on this one between touring and holidays, and finally got to that finish mark. I'm stoked to be able to finally share it with you 'Down Like This' featuring the vocals of Tkay. This is the first track off my up coming EP due for release later this year. 'Down Like This' will be available via Sweat It Out Music on February 19. Xx

MOTEZ' OFFICIAL DISCLOSURE REMIX IS NOW LIVE

I've been holding this one close for awhile now, so I'm stoked to be able to finally share it with you. My official remix of Disclosures collaboration with Sam Smith, 'Omen'. It was a the second single from their new album that just dropped, and a track that gave me tasteful, body moving chords and stunning Sam Smith vocals to play with. Big love to Guy & Howard for choosing me to place my touch on what is an already beautiful track. Can't wait to drop this one on the dance floor! xx 
 

MOTEZ ANNOUNCES HUGE 'CROSS POLLINATION TOUR'

BOOM! Just like that I'm out of the studio and back on the road, with 16-plus shows across Australia, America and Fiji and even more to be announced, this tour is going to be massive! Kicking off in Atlanta I will see TomorrowWorld for the first time, followed by Beyond Wonderland in San Fran and a stopover in Detroit. For my first round back in Australia you can catch me in Perth, Brisbane and the Gold Coast, before I head back to North America for Hard Day of the Dead in LA, and a slew of shows in Seattle, Calgary, Dallas and more! The back end of the tour will see me play Sydney's Chinese Laundry, before relaxing along the glistening shores of Fiji for Your Paradise. Come sweat up those dance floors! I got some new tunes to test out as well! 
 

MOTEZ REMIXES FUTURE CLASSIC'S INDIE OUTFIT, PANAMA

With constant studio time back home in Adelaide and a little bit too much FIFA15, I think it's about time I share my latest remix, this time of Sydney duo PANAMA, and their new single, Jungle. Signed to Future Classic, these guys have delivered a warm, upbeat and ambient track that gives so much to work with, especially with the wholesome vocal chords of Jarrahs. Sweet bliss. I hope you guys vibe xx 
 

PREMIER: 'TRYNA SHAKE IT'

'Tryna Shake It' is live! After Annie Mac dropped it into her show on Friday night for the cheeky worldwide premier and today seeing it spread online by the Dancing Astronaut legends, it's safe to say I'm pretty stoked to finally have some new music out for you! 'Tryna Shake It' is the first of two tracks off my forthcoming VANCOUVER EP, one I have been slaving over for some time now, so I'm buzzing to receive support from the bros ODESZA, Disclosure and Destructo. Maybe you caught it being spun on triple j this week or if you're in the UK it hit Annie Mac's BBC Radio 1 show; otherwise for everyone else kick to my SoundCloud to stream it in all of its freshness. Thanks for sticking by... the second track is coming very soon! - Tez xx

MOTEZ REMIXES SAM SMITH 'LEAVE YOUR LOVER'

Kicking off the year with a remix of Sam Smith's 'Leave Your Lover'. It's such a gorgeous track that I instantly fell in love with and I just couldn't help myself to give it rework. It's easy working with a voice as good as Sam's.Hope you enjoy. xx
