The newly formed Miami-based duo MOTv, comprising of Shawn Humphreys (Shawn Castro) , and Mateo Raigosa (Mateo P.i), has been in the spotlight ever since their stellar breakthrough remix of Dropout’s “Slowly”. Native to the party city of Miami, they have made their presence unmissable by playing at some of the most popular nightclubs and opening the stage for numerous internationally renowned artists such as Dada Life and Swanky Tunes.
Not only have the duo grabbed the attention of the likes of Calvin Harris, Chuckie and Steve Aoki, but have also caused a blimp on the radars of the general public, who turned up in large numbers to attend their very own show in Puerto Rico. Having already gained the warm support of some of the biggest names in the industry, they look to take things a step further with their latest Star Wars themed production “Force”.
“Force” perfectly exemplifies MOTv’s excellent ear for music. With a strong and punchy intro that slowly builds up into heavier synths, riddled with chest thumping claps and kicks, the track never drops tempo and momentum. From the word go, the production takes the listening along a gripping ride towards a roaring, bass-ridden progressive drop, that has the power to blow the roofs off some of the biggest festivals in the world. High quality and meticulous attention to detail are some of the most obvious traits the duo possess. With such an wide arsenal of much need skills, they are sure to become one of the most iconic DJs in the EDM industry.
MOTv are currently working with names such as GTA and Henrix to better their sound, and have fastened themselves a gig at Miami’s best Halloween Party last weekend.
