When someone asks where the party at, Motorik answer. The Sydney-based dance collective and record label are known around the traps for throwing the most outrageous of raves in secret locations. After three years of warm-ups and killer releases, they're ready to get epic for their third birthday this Saturday.

With the 15th release coming up for the label — a casual facemelter of an EP from The Presets' K.I.M — and their own show on the brand new FBi Click, Motorik have a bunch of reasons to get messy. They've also released the next instalment of their 'Under the Influences' mixtape series with K.I.M, streaming over here.

But you came here to find out what makes the crew tick huh? Andrew Santamaria from Motorik took us through his top five tracks, set to gear you up for Motorik's epic birthday bash this Saturday.

CSMNT61 — KEEP HOLDING ON

"The first ever release on Motorik Records. It got the ball rolling for everyone. Still one of our proudest moments as a label or party."

WORDLIFE — VISION

"We love the Wordlife bros, have done for years before they became Wordlife and will do for ever more. This is their first release on our label and if I'm not mistaken our most successful one. They're going form strength to strength, with their new live set one not to be missed. They are, of course, playing the birthday party. I'll be front and centre... high-fiving you."

JENSEN INTERCEPTOR — SYSTEM ADDICT (SCNTST REMIX)

"This is the new one from our main man and label stalwart, Jensen Interceptor. He's been bringing the bangers to the table since day one. Today is no different."

THE FINGER PRINCE — YOUR FACE

"The final piece in our four-fingered puzzle of artists that inspired Motorik to evolve from putting on raves to creating a recorded history of our times. Also a personal favourite."

ERIK & FIEDEL — DONNA

"Pretty much every time I'm asked about a top ten or five or even one, this track is in there. It was one of the first techno records I ever heard. It didn't make much sense to me for ages, all I knew was that it was wildly different to anything else I was listening to. It still stands out as both an inspiration and conundrum. I. LOVE. IT."

Motorik's 3rd Birthday is happening this Saturday, July 19 at a 'secret base location'. Tickets available here and third release ($55 +bf) are selling fast so click those heels.
