So I typically only write about
trashy pop music but today I feel like bringing you something else I’ve been obsessed with. DJ Tiësto & MOTi’s “Blow Your Mind.” This track was premiered during Tiësto’s Ultra Miami set a few months back and has still not seen a formal release, but I sure hope it gets one. The track is bonkers amazing. I can only imagine how it felt to hear this track live for the first time!
There are two main sections to this intense track: One part of the track has a trappy, ethno, Diplo-esque flare to it. It sounds as if Indiana Jones, (played by Will Smith), broke into a Egyptian Pharaoh Tutankhamun’s crypt only to find out King Tut was a bomb ass DJ and Queen Nefertiti invented twerk teams. The ‘Mumbai qualifies for the World Cup’ realness of this section is pretty amazing stuff.
Oh, but that’s not all! The other half of the song is rave-y and intense. It sounds as if Liu Kang and Sub-Zero from Mortal Kombat got trapped in The Matrix and the only way for them to escape is to play a life-or-death round of Dance Dance Revolution on the super duper wayyyy extra hard setting. It’s kind of impossible for me not to throw out my neck from overly dramatic headbanging to this section.
I honestly cannot believe this song hasn’t gotten an official release yet. Was the initial reception bad or something? I can’t imagine high as fuck festival goers leaving Ultra in a mixed state of exhaustion and dehydration and saying, “I really hope that horrible Tiësto & MOTi song never hits BeatPort.” What are these DJ’s waiting for? Release the damn thing already!
