Artist Bio
David Malachi, better known by his stage name DJ Motiv, is a DJ and songwriter based in North Carolina. Never afraid to go too deep, his emotive musical selections is his own therapy. Growning up on his father’s eclectic combination of soul music (Frankie Beverly & Maze , Erykah Badu), Funk (Parliament, Marvin Gaye), synth-infused 80s music (Depeche Mode, Gary Numan)… all which became infused with his own love for both hip-hop and video game music, DJ Motiv ended up with quite a mixed spectrum of musical influence. Today, this translates into sets where he picks apart and infuses together all the pieces of this music that he loves best. He is a very active member of his local community, Motiv is no stranger to the ups-and-downs of a small-town music scene. Though he loves playing in Nightclubs, Weddings and Special Events, his love for music goes beyond the spectrum of mixing tunes. As a producer, artist, and promoter, he has found plenty of ways to express himself musically. When he's not behind the decks, DJ Motiv can be found in the studio working on new music. He has released several successful singles and EPs over the years from artist and talent he has managed, and is currently working on his debut album. In addition to his successful career as a DJ, Motiv is also a successful producer and songwriter. He has worked with some of the biggest names in the music industry, including Uncle Murda, Digital Extremes, and Alix Lapri. His production credits also include television and film, such as the soundtrack for the hit video game “WarFrame” and the film “Slender.” “For me, it’s all about mood and a deep, hypnotic groove… playing those tracks that get you tapping your feet and nodding your head without you realizing it, regardless of genre, tempo, style, or release date.“ - DJ Motiv
