Daniel Chien better known as Wax Motif is regarded as a major orchestrator in developing house sound
across the US. With musical influences like R&B, disco and U.K. bass, the Australian-born, LA-based

In late 2019, Wax founded his very own imprint, Divided Souls Records, with the lead single for the
imprint of the same name, “Divided Souls” Ft. Diddy. The imprint has first and foremost served as a home

Matroda, 220Kid, Euro Trash and many more.
Wax is coming off his 2022 debut album release, House Of Wax, that has accumulated over 33 Million
streams. House of Wax is a seventeen-track LP that showcases Wax Motif’s abilities to stretch across all
genres of house. The album incorporates electronic music euphoria as easily as it does hip-hop swagger,
journeying through meditative, chilled-out vibes, summery, highway-cruising bops, and dance floor
Wax’s music has made it to the decks and supported by acts such as Lee Floss, Dom Dolla, John
Summit, Solomun, Meduza, MK, FISHER, Chris Lake, CID, Don Diablo, James Blake, and Zhu. Wax took
it upon himself to flip Drake’s Honestly Nevermind, yielding radio support and co-signed by Gordo, the
original producer of the LP.

in the first few months. Wax has several additional IDs that are circulating the internet and social media,
