Sam Smith may be the most recognized male vocalist from the last few years, starting with his breakout hit on Disclosure's "Latch" and critically acclaimed original "Stay With Me". The track released on Smith's debut album, In the Lonely Hour, which included other favorites, like "Money On My Mind", "Lay Me Down", and "Leave Your Lover". Who better to tackle the latter track than Australian producer Motez, a house savant who has gained heavy traction over the last year with inspiring remixes and originals. With an acute focus on vocals appearing throughout his work, Motez reshapes "Leave Your Lover", chopping and pitching Smith's lyrics and surrounding them with rhythmic piano chords. The result falls nothing short of superb and marks another win for the young electronic producer.
Enjoy Motez's new rendition of "Leave Your Lover" and catch him during his world tour, an in-progress adventure that continues into February with dates in North American and Europe.
