MOTi’s ascent to becoming one of the biggest crossover names from the EDM scene continues as he brings his magic touch to Tiësto’s latest single with one of the world’s biggest artists: John Legend.
Grammy and Oscar winning singer Legend has one of the most recognizable voices in pop, R&B and soul music, and first dipped his toes into the dance music waters when he featured on David Guetta’s listen.
MOTi takes the feel good vibe of the original and adds his own inimitable touch, chunking up the beats a notch with some tribal-tinged bass and infectious pitched-up vocal cut-ups. Legend’s vocals sound glorious, with subtle effects giving them an even sweeter lift. The euphoric vibe of the original is retained but filtered through MOTi’s slick and subtle approach to make for a killer rework.
His last release with Alpharock, Legends, has stormed its way to 1.6 million plays across YouTube, SoundCloud and Spotify in under two months, making this another huge summer for the talented Dutch producer.
With gigs upcoming this month in Singapore, Philippines, Japan, Taiwan and his home country, he has plenty of chances to test out this new beauty across the globe.
Tiësto feat. John Legend ‘Summer Nights (MOTi Remix)’ is out this Friday 2 September.
