Motez Has the Moves

Baghdad-born and honourary South Australian, Motez Obaidi, who works under Motez, is a man showing that Adelaide’s music scene is far more than just hip hop. The electronic prouder has won favour for his remixes of some of RnB and pop’s biggest names, including Mark Morrison’s ‘Return of the Mack’, Justin Timberlake’s ‘I Like You’ and Frank Ocean’s ‘Thinking About You’. He has also performed alongside the likes of Disclosure and Pete Tong on his way to becoming a club favourite. Now Motez is thrilled to welcome his debut single, ‘Own Up’. Your Music Radar’s Graham Porter: “This track puts Motez on the map and pushes the pin through the wall into next door.” Star Bar, Bendigo – July 11 & Eureka, Geelong – July 17.
