The Liverpudlian producer will inaugurate his own label with a new 12″ next month.
Melé first garnered the attention of club music connoisseurs in 2010 when he made waves with his high-energy brand of UK Funky-infused bass music. Since then Melé has gone to to release EPs for Mixpak, Grizzly and Toddla T’s Girls Music imprint, collaborating with the likes of Kano and Nu Brand Flexx along the way.
Melé’s desire to avoid sticking to one strain of sound has resulted in a dynamic, wide-ranging output that has also seen the artist have trouble when it comes to finding a home for his often difficult-to-classify creations. “I steer away from the genre box and therefore my sound can chop and change, so over the last few years I’ve struggled to find a label where my music fits perfectly,” he says.
As a solution to this Melé has launched his own Quadrant label, set to be inaugurated by the man himself. The first release will be a two-track 12″, with further efforts set to come from Mak & Pasteman and unknown production duo Callahan.
You can stream QUAD001 below. The record will be released on November 10.
