Australian producer Wax Motif, born Danny Chien, has risen above a sea of talent in the house music industry and is riding the wave he’s made for himself through his unique sound and talent. There really isn’t anyone like him, and in an ocean of talented producers, this makes him attractive to bigger fish taking notice. Artists like Laidback Luke, The Chainsmokers, Tiesto, A-Trak and more have given Wax Motif support, and he’s released on labels such as Dim Mak, Fool’s Gold, Mad Decent, and more. Not impressed yet? Have a seat while we give you three reasons to love Wax Motif.
1. Wax Motif is a pioneer for the G-House genre movement. Chien avoids the trends and instead finds his inspiration in R&B, disco, and UK bass, and he’s now regarded as a major orchestrator in G-House sound. His G-House talents were put to work with Destructo for his album on Interscope Records, melding together groovy deep house with smooth rap flows for a totally new sound. This explorative part of Wax Motif proves he’s more than just a good house DJ.
2. Wax Motif hosts his own radio show, House of Wax Radio. Chien started House of Wax Radio around a year ago, and since then he’s been consistently posting new episodes to the House of Wax SoundCloud every two weeks. Each episode overflows with new and rising house artists, Wax Motif IDs, and sprinkled with bangers that soothes the soul of any house head. A creative house genius who also curates and mixes his own radio episodes? Yes, please.
3. Wax Motif’s DJ sets deviate from a typical house set. Chien brings a refreshing variety to club and festival stages, and also brings his energy and enthusiasm for his music in a way that helps his audiences appreciate his performance more. He incorporates his G-House style into his mixing, while also dropping his original G-House tracks and other unique tracks from stand-out artists in a way that makes a Wax Motif set contrast heavily with others.
