It was only a matter of time before the remixes began rolling in.

Last week Drake released his seventh LP, Honestly, Nevermind, which quickly became Apple Music's biggest dance album of all-time. Considering it contains a surprising amount of house music, one of the genre's leading producers, Wax Motif, has unveiled four new edits within just a week of the album's drop.

Having always bridged the gap between dance music and hip-hop, Motif perfectly transformed the minimal house tracks into bouncy, club-ready reworks. While he put a tech house twist on "Massive" and “Sticky," we then hear his signature bass house sound in his remix of “Keeper” and a more breezy style in his flip of the salsa-inspired "Ties That Bind."

“Drake is one of my favorite artists, so when I heard he dropped a house album I streamed it immediately,” he explained in a press statement. “After listening to 'Tie That Binds,' I heard a clubbier version in my head and flipped that one first. But then I got carried away and spent 48 more hours in the studio remixing other records, whittling six down to four for you guys to hear."
