Ahead of Melé stepping up to deliver his coveted In The House compilation, Defected presents a four-track vinyl taster showcasing his standout percussive, tribal sound. From 13-year-old bedroom DJ growing up in the Wirral to his breakout anthem ‘Ambience’ in 2015, Melé has now fully honed his skills in production and mixing, culminating in two mixes for ‘Defected presents Melé In The House’ and three brand new productions. All three of these original productions are included in this vinyl sampler along with an exclusive from Joe Corti, demonstrating what’s to come from the compilation.

With live percussion from drum warrior Shovell, the cover of ‘Pasilda’ pumps up the track’s unmistakeable rhythms and piano melody (recorded live by prolific record producer Fraser T Smith) with an irresistibly hefty bassline and vocal loops. A long-time highlight of Melé’s sets but until now unreleased, ‘Pasilda’ is an exclusive from the upcoming compilation. ‘Tribal Harmonix’ is the darker, more melodic and tech-inclined of the three, while the aptly named ‘Brooklyn Bounce’ is Melé’s ode to Danny Tenaglia, a key influence whose sought-after percussive spirit is apparent throughout Melé’s work. Finally is ‘Dancing Mist’, an exclusive from Joe Corti, an up-and-comer from the UK. The sophisticated, New York-inspired, rolling house cut with plenty of bounce rounds off the perfect vinyl selection from the anticipated Defected presents Melé In The House.
