SURRENDER WITH MOTEZ
AS HE JOURNEYS
TO THE DEEP ON
Legend in the game Motez elevates to new heights with the almighty new single ‘Submission’, out now via Club Sweat. Commanding the dance floor, Motez invites you into his sonic playground to ‘let go’ with no choice but to submit to the ethereal ecstasy that envelops you. The deepest and darkest of wobbling bass lines are coupled with a kick bold enough to penetrate to the very core of any raver. Arpeggiated strings rise and fall throughout, resolving momentarily before ascending again leaving you feverishly wanting more. All the while synthesiser and vocal ad-libs nestled into the mix serve as a constant energy force, keeping you locked to groove and indulging in the deep. This is prime ammunition from Motez as he flexes his innate ability to craft musical moments that transcend space and time.
Motez speaks to his new single, “‘Submission’ is about letting yourself go, and losing yourself in the moment, when you’re trying to tell yourself that (in the grand scheme of things) none of this is real and that you need to surrender to the music.”
