Meet G-House Australian born, LA based producer Wax Motif

We meet Wax Motif for a quick one on one! This producer has carved paths from pop to hip-hop, electronic and house, and won him fans in Diplo, DJ Snake, Tchami, Major Lazer, A-Trak, RL Grime, GTA, Oliver Heldens and more. He has remixed for the likes of Major Lazer, Deadmau5, YG, Kid Ink, Chromeo, and Warren G. An artist with many strings to his bow, he also broadcasts original sounds on his own House of Wax Radio, and founded the digital currency $WAXM in 2021, emerging yet again as a pioneer – this time in the realm of the artist-created NFT movement-let’s go->

Q. Tell us about the new track ‘On The Low’! such a vibe and we love the Mario Winans sample – how did it come about? 

I randomly met Longstoryshort at a festival.  I just finished playing and was talking about a song of his to a group on people and he kinda tapped me on the shoulder and was like “I think you’re talking about me”.  We ended up hanging the rest of the night and linked up to work on something.  He showed me a work in progress where he’d sampled Mario.  We ended up finishing off the idea, rerecorded the vocal and did a new mix and took it to the clubs to start testing it out.  After a few shows it felt pretty good so we knew we had to drop it but waiting till Ultra felt like the right move.

Q. You have said in the past people are often surprised when they find out your Australian. how do you react to that? 

Its fun taking people by surprise to be honest and no one ever has a bad reaction to Australians, its usually the opposite so it’s not so bad.
