Laced with beats hard enough to make speakers lurch forward, Wax Motif‘s “HARDFest Selects” takeover doesn’t come without the Aussie’s signature flair—but, no surprises there. Brimming with beat-driven, top-shelf house selects, Wax Motif’s assortment of 25 cuts for the lead-up to HARD Summer 2021 is a polished addition to the festival’s exclusive playlist series, which will place a handful of acts soon to appear at the Southern California affair in the curatorial driver’s seat. Revving the engine with dance floor—er, festival ground—fillers from his own catalog (see “Need You” with Phlegmatic Dogs), Dom Dolla, Tchami, MK, Dancing Astronaut Artist to Watch in 2021 John Summit, Skrillex, and an eclectic lineup of others, Wax Motif sets the tone for a set that attendees can expect to make a statement, dripping in polish, idiosyncrasy, and arrangements to make that a** shake.
HARD Summer will descend upon San Bernardino’s NOS Events Center from July 31 – August 1. Tickets to the crown jewel of SoCal’s festival circuit are available here. In the meantime, Wax Motif’s “HARDFest Selects” takeover can be streamed below.
