Melé's next up in the MIXED BY series, and he's not messing around.

Just when we needed a strong, mid-week pick-me-up, UK producer and DJ Melé turns in the next instalment in THUMP's MIXED BY series, and we've been bumping it with relish. For the uninitiated, Melé has grown in recent years into a regular UK radio fixture (championed by BBC Radio 1's Annie Mac and Toddla T, to name but a few) and serial remixer, whose rattling melt-downs of hip hop, rap grime and house have made him a champion of all things playful.


If you feel like taking a dip into his Soundcloud, we recommend you bump his Ruff Ryder tribute 'D.M.X'; turning DMX's high-octane bark into a millennial club jam, complete with steel drums and squelching chord progressions. More recently, his collaborative project with Kano and his recent Dark EP demonstrate the breadth of his musical interests, so it's great to hear a brand new mix from him that distills all this madness into one mass.

Mele is playing W.A.R! at Ibiza Rocks! on 22nd August.
