TOUR ESSENTIALS: Wax Motif
Born in Australia as Danny Chien, now better known as WAX MOTIF, this is a producer on the rise. With a unique production style and serious mixing skills, Chien is one of our most in demand DJs right now.
Wax Motif has become a pioneer for the G-House movement, working with Destructo for his album, alongside side by side recording sessions with the likes of Ty Dolla Sign, YG, Yung Thug and heaps more.
Chien is definitely not one to shy away from the life of a touring producer, featuring across festivals as large and varied as EDC, HARD Summer, Holy Ship, Stereosonic and Splendour in the Grass. Wax can now add Falls Festival to that list, as he hits the stage on NYE in Lorne.
We caught up with the man behind the alias to catch his tour must haves, read them below:
“I try to make sure that most of the essentials I use on a dilly basis fit into a backpack so I’m able to work anywhere/anytime.”
“No one wants to see their best caps crushed on the journey. Keep em fresh with this guy from New Era.”
“Once I discovered this company it was game over. They’re just better than anything else and when you’re sitting on planes or in airports a lot every extra bit of comfort counts.”
“Easiest and quickest way to feel fresh after a flight or for the tour bus when showers are limited.”
Grapes The Cat Portable Charger
“Always with me keeping my phone charged up during long haul journeys and saving me from crouching around power outlets.”
