With over 18 years of experience, Melo’s style originates from Hip‐Hop/ turntablist style party rocking, but later on influenced heavily by the underground dance music scenes of New York, Chicago and Detroit. Since then, his style had evolved to much diverse and sophisticated palette, often blending Deep House, Acid, Minimal with Jazz, Soul, Afro and Disco. Besides his monthly residency THEGETUP!, Melo had also hosted/ lend support to a wide array of international artists, from Grammy Award nominated Hiatus Kaiyote (AUS), hip-hop super trio De La Soul (US) to world renowned DJs/ producers DJ Spinna (US); J.Rocc & DJ Shortkut (The Beat Junkies, US); DJ Preservation (Mon Dieu Music, US); Tuxedo (Stones Throw, US); Chicago’s legendary DJ Rahaan (Lumberjacks in Hell/ Street Edits); Mark de Clive Lowe (UK); Eric Lau (Kilawatt Music, UK); Andrew Meza (BTS Radio, US); Teebs (Brainfeeder, US); and Japanese DJs/ producers Mitsu the Beats, Cro-Magnon, grooveman Spot, Downwell79s etc. In 2014, Melo was handpicked by the captain of Japan’s powerhouse music label JAZZY SPORT as the core member of JAZZY SPORT HONG KONG – further assuring his reputation in the city’s underground music scene. In March 2016, Melo released his first and much anticipated mix CD in years titled “NITETIME BEATDOWN”. The mix leans heavily towards deep, minimal, acid sounds sprinkled with afro, disco and soul flavors.
