2016 couldn’t have started any bigger for V MoVement & UNDR Ctrl as their exclusive copresented party on Sydney Harbour, The Island LIVE kicked off the year with a couple of very special intimate appearances from international lords Boys Noize and Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs.
The two events formed parts 1 & 2 of the SOL REPUBLIC’s Music Made Me Do It takeover with the #MMMDI crew joining forces once again with V MoVement and UNDR Ctrl for the final part of the series on Friday 12th February. We follow up those sold out shows with our biggest house music line-up to date and a very special headline set from Motez, alongside Set Mo, Olympic Ayres DJs, Jimmy 2 Sox and Ugo B.
Quite simply, Motez is one of the best DJs in the country and this is a Sydney exclusive appearance and his first Australian show of 2016. Born in Iraq, Motez is based in Adelaide these days, but spends most months of the year touring overseas. Funnily enough he just played Holy Ship (again), so he should be used to the wavy sea conditions by the time he steps onto our floating pontoon! As well as being a killer DJ, his original productions and remixes are perhaps what he’s most known for internationally. Two remixes for Sam Smith, plus one a piece for Disclosure and Flight Facilities make him a near household name, whilst original EP’s for Sweat It Out keep the club heads happy.
Joining Tez are Sydney house duo Set Mo, so hot in fact we asked them back to play their second Island LIVE gig of the summer! The guys have just wrapped a huge national tour for current anthem ‘Chasing Forever’, including big sets at Field Day and Beyond the Valley, while previous single ‘White Dress’, was Triple J’s 11th most played single of 2015 and is set to chart highly in the Hottest 100. Olympic Ayres return from a European summer vacation to keep the summer DJ vibes flowing and we are honoured to have solo sets from our good buddies Jimmy 2 Sox and Ugo B – who you might recognise better from their award-winning project.
