Ellie Goulding – Beating Heart (Motez Remix)
Australia has been a boon to the electronic music scene for years and the country’s latest export destined to take the states by storm is deep house phenom Motez. Diving feet first into the deep end on his remix of Ellie Goulding’s “Beating Heart,” the South Australian talent incorporate tempo shifts and throaty bass lines to reinvigorate Goulding’s ethereal vocals. What starts as downtempo shoegaze quickly flips the switch into a gripping after hours cut, rife with swirling white noise, elastic pads and fluttering shakers. Goulding’s vocals breathe an effortless seduction into the mix, complimenting the darker nature of Motez style with her own sugary-sweet top line.
