MOTION is a Brisbane DJ, prolific producer, and founder of DEEPER LIFE. His eclectic sets and productions cover the sound of deep, minimal house and techno. He has had a bunch of records out on international labels in the last few years and has big plans for his DEEPER LIFE brand in 2019, after a year of hosting livestreamed events.
October 2018 sees the release of remixes of Heartbeats, MOTION’s track on UK label La Casa Roja Records. Every remix is by a Brisbane based producer. The DEEPER LIFE/LACASA ROJA RECORDS – LABEL PARTY is happening at Slingshot Bar Gallery in Fortitude Valley on 27 October to celebrate the release. This edition of Underground Sound Signals features some tunes that MOTION has been enjoying lately, as well as his remaster of Heartbeats.
MOTION: I am really starting to appreciate the need to put space in my productions and also really appreciate hearing those spaces in tracks that I listen to. I think both my production and DJing are moving towards a deeper minimal sound, which thrives in spaces.
I love the opening track of my set, Tao, by Arthus. It is such a great production. Track six, Swerve, by Archie Hamilton & Benson Herbert, is one of my favourite house tracks at the moment. Closing with one of my own tracks, Heartbeats (MOTION Remaster), which is out now on La Casa Roja Records, is exciting. This was a remaster of a previous track I released with the label.
La Casa Roja Records has been a massive support to me over my very short time producing and I look forward to working with them well into the future. This remix was part of a group of remixes by NAFTA, Emlyn BPM, Oli Fernandez, ZoelJoel and Louderest. It was great to have these guys remix my track Heartbeats. I hope you can check them all out.
DEEPER LIFE was set up this year to showcase the deeper end of electronic music, by supporting local DJs and artists through the use of livestreaming at Frequencies TV. The concept is about getting DJs to play a half hour set comprised of their own unique interpretations of deep electronic music. Since the start of this year DEEPER LIFE has run monthly shows on Frequencies TV. In addition, this year DEEPER LIFE teamed up with Frisson Records to run a special edition streaming show, collaborated with K-ART music to run a livestreaming event, and this weekend will host its first club night at Slingshot Bar. In the future DEEPER LIFE is looking to grow its brand through working with more artists and launching the DEEPER LIFE MUSIC record label in early 2019.
