The legend who brought tribal house to life, Mele, blessed our stage with his debut at Unit 51 back in February. Mele is known for being a top-notch selector and producer, creating some of the most unique sounds on the scene and bringing them to life on the dancefloor. With his collective sounds of tribal house, Chicago house and hip hop, he gathers worldwide sounds and puts them into play during his sets, which is what makes him so distinctive as a DJ.
He started off at the age of just 13 years old and over 10 years later, he has made a serious name for himself in the electronic music scene, now having releases on Eats Everything’s imprint ‘Edible’ and ‘Defected’ however, it was his release ‘Ambience’ that got him recognition. The carnival-vibe track took over the rave scene back in 2015, being played by some of the biggest DJ’s such as Annie Mac to name one. From all of this he has gone to headline the famous ELROW in Barcelona and recently announced his first essential mix on BBC Radio 1, which is big news.
When he took to the decks at Unit last month, Aberdeen’s very own Adam Chapman was on the warm up and even though the crowd started off quiet Adam managed to get them moving and grooving building the perfect dancefloor for Mele to take over. Its safe to say he blew the roof off Unit with his infectious energy and our dancers saw the night through til’ the club shut. The new set up we had in place also proved to be a success, making the whole night that little bit more intimate with your favourite DJs.
