The picturesque and multilayered five track EP titled Soulitude by Australian/Iraqi producer Motez is one of the most capturing release in a while.
Composed in response to the global mindset of isolation, the project is a sensitive, minimal and emotive ambient work, encompassing his own experiences and the natural human responses to seclusion. The stunning Fleurieu Peninsula of South Australia serves as the backdrop to the cinematic live performance.
“I’ve always been intrigued by emotive music that has ambience rather than just dance music alone, as that’s mostly what I grew up with. It’s very comforting music for me – it’s what I listen to on my walks, as it’s not so intrusive. It’s the kind of music that’s more grounding, centering, so I’ve always been drawn to that.”
