Australian/Iraqi producer Motez has combined forces with Japanese producer Qrion for a deep house delight full of twists and turns titled ‘Slow Down’ which is out now on Sweat It Out! and Lane 8‘s label ‘This Never Happened’ and is sure to be a dance floor filler.
With robust synths encompassing the mix and injecting a thick layer of dark and brooding colour into the soundscape, ‘Slow Down’ starts in an ominous fashion that subtly inserts the groove into the mix with the warped instrumentation building in a slow nature that leaves you desperate for more. As the sampled vocal takes centre stage in the reprieve, we are met with an explosion of sound that transfers an uncompromising groove that you immediately get lost within.
“I had the pleasure of meeting Qrion on a long writing trip in LA. I really liked her take on house music and how melodic and emotional her output is, so what we made inevitably had so much musicality from chords to arpeggios, the writing of the song was very quick because we really got along musically and personally. We’ve made a couple of songs in the process but the first one was ‘Slow Down’: a song about taking a step back and slowing down when our lives get crazy and busy.” – Motez
