Siege is a DJ and music producer born and bred in Belgium. His techy take on house has graced labels from Toolroom and Strictly Rhythm to ABODE records and Glasgow Underground.
Raised in Hasselt, outside of Belgium's best known clubbing centres, Siege, aka Sieg Motmans, is a beacon for the power of focus and self-determination. From recording tracks off the radio on a tape player given to him by his grandfather, to buying a mixer to try to learn to mix with this and a CD player, the desire to play music has always been with him. Buying his first vinyl turntables before he was old enough to go to a club, instead he listened to mixes on the internet, using this knowledge to buy the hottest records of the moment. It was after playing his first major gigs just a year or two later, however, that he realised he wanted to similarly inspire others by producing his own tracks. Self taught by his own dedication and the help of Future Music Magazine, when his first remix stopped just shy of the Beatport House Top Ten his reputation was assured.
After remixing BBT’s classic Gods Child - which was being played by Hot Since 82, Paco Osuna, Prok & Fitch, Franky Rizardo and Nic Fanciulli to name but a few - Siege came to the attention of Toolroom’s main man Mark Knight. He asked the young Belgian to remix another classic: Sharam Jey ‘Shake Your’.
A few releases after his rip-roaring remix of Sharam Jey’s classic, that went on to earn an incredible amount of DJ support from all corners of the Globe Siege returns to Toolroom Trax with his debut EP on the label. He displays his awesome and massively creative production talent here with 2 slices of thundering tech house that tick 2 very different boxes. 'Only 1' is the peak-time, heads down affair that Mark Knight has been hammering in his live sets over the past few Months, whilst 'Control' is a more melodic outing that lends itself to those bigger rooms and festival stages alike. Resulting, again, in a massive amount of DJ support from Adam Beyer, Technasia, Sam Paganini and many more.
Newly appointed Toolroom Family member Siege continues his journey remixing one of the summer anthems ‘Feel my Needs’ by Weiss. Siege ups the ante here with a solid tech house groove and uses those vocals and pianos sparingly, but enough to create an uplifting moment in those tougher sets. After being premiered by Yousef in Danny Howard’s show on BBC Radio 1 it was rapidly picked up by the likes of Alan Fitzpatrick, Loco Dice and Fatboy Slim.
After playing on the infamous Tomorrowland and Extrema Outdoor in Belgium he’ll soon be making his debut for Toolroom on their ADE showcase plus the massive TOO15OOM event in Maidstone one week later. With another EP coming on Toolroom’s main label later this year the future is looking bright for Siege.
