LISTEN: Goldroom ‘Embrace’ (Motez Edit)
The bearded man from Adelaide has done it again. I’m talking about MOTEZ, of course, and his white-hot editing skills. Yep, he’s back in action today, releasing a brand spankin’ new one – this time of GOLDROOM’s dreamy synthpop single ‘Embrace’.
Making so many appearances around Australia pretty much non-stop for the past few months, it’s kind of hard to understand how MOTEZ has even got the time, not to mention energy to keep stunning us with these stellar house cuts.
Working his magic on ‘Embrace’, MOTEZ turns the track from a bright shining pop ditty into a sultry helping of pure garage house full of crisp handclaps, Detroit-inspired chord synths and deep pulsing bass stabs.
Pitching down the original vocal to match the dark tone of the bass, MOTEZ has tailor made this edit strictly for the dancefloor – there’s no doubt that you’ll be hearing this sturdy little tune for months to come in and around the clubs of Australia.
And what’s even better news? Goold ol’ mate MOTEZ is letting us download the track for free! Smack that DL button, gents.
