Motez has released his latest single, a techno meets house track entitled "Patience," out via the Sydney-based Club Sweat. Known as Moutaiz Al-Obaidi to those close to him, the track demonstrates a concept he has been familiar with throughout his life, whether traveling as a refugee from Iraq to Adelaide, Australia in 2006, or weathering the ups and downs of a life in entertainment as a DJ/producer on tour and in the studio as a creative.
The song, in name and in its therapeutic vocal section, follows a path of inspiration through moving words that contrast with a melodic techno energy fit for the club. That contrast is such that brings many to the dance music community, in person or via headphones. It can be found across the gospel samples in house music, through the use of preaching samples in techno, and here on "Patience," a combination of both. He shared in some thought provoking musings via a press release saying, "This track was created during a period of creative and personal change, while on an extended US writing trip for a longer-than-usual time. This always brings me frustration, as I am not particularly patient and I realised in order for me to capitalise on this change, I had to learn that patience is a virtue and what it truly means. It became clear that Patience not only helps with the end result but also makes you enjoy and appreciate the process itself, to learn from it and think long-term." It prompted us to ask some further questions on these issues we can all so often relate to.
