I love the Motiv8 sound and was an avid collector of all their productions in the day. I love the signature chugging (galloping) bass lines and the searing synth riffs. I'm still searching for the drum loop used in most of their remixes (seems to have a tambourine and a slightly metallic snare sound.

Steve Rodway AKA Motiv8 created some excellent remixes that set commercial clubs on fire, all artists covered.
Very poppy & predictable but always uplifting in many ways.
A definate inspiration & definately pointed a few in the direction of Matt Darey, Ferry Corsten etc..
