So let’s start from the beginning. I first heard your stuff back in 2015 from Stwo. I wanna believe I hit you up that same night but I can’t remember..
I remember.

I think the first time we linked up though was in London that same year on the HW&W Europe Tour. We were renting this weird apartment right above this Chinese restaurant.. Gravez and Tek.Lun were there. It was my first time hanging with Fwdslxsh and PYRMDPLAZA too. Hard to believe that was three years ago.
Yeah that was a big deal to me, connecting with you all in person.

The London show too man.. that shit was fucking LIT! PYRMDPLAZA that night, till this day was one of the craziest sets I ever witnessed..

Melo-Zed – Eleven

Born in South London, 21-year-old producer and guitarist Melo-Zed had an early introduction to music- studying classical guitar at age 6, developing a keen interest in jazz, hip hop and soul throughout his early teens. Melo found himself meticulously studying records such as Voodoo, Kind Of Blue and Fantastic Vol.2 – citing them as touchstones in his musical education, intrigued by their timeless sound and ‘feeling’ based approach to composition.

Melo-Zed attempts to bring a similar approach to his own productions, ethereal melodies interwoven with intricate, textured beats and subtle vocal layers create a vivid mood that can be easily recognised as his own. Melo-Zed’s interest in experimental, expansive and cinematic music has led him to perform at places such as Boiler Room, score short films for Channel 4 and create sound installations for prestigious institutions such as Tate Modern and Tate Britain.

Through Melo-Zed’s debut EP Eleven, he offers a carefully crafted project, creating a rich and immersive sonic landscape reflecting his ever growing sound palette and finely tuned production style.

PYRMDPLAZA – THE VOID

After an extended hiatus, PYRMDPLAZA the mysterious and elusive producer from Newport, Wales presents his debut EP The Void.


Drawing inspiration from trance, video game scores and anime soundtracks from the late 90’s, The Void’s bright and dreamy synths, combined with 808s and hard hitting percussion convey a sense of longing and yearning that only he could capture.

TEK.LUN – ALLOW IT!

It’s crazy to think that when we first got put on to TEK.LUN he was 17 years old. Now at 24 the Baltimore native has been living in Los Angeles for the past two years and has been quietly working on new material. ALLOW IT! is a collection of tracks from 2015-2017 that we all think is his best work to date. Anyone who is a fan of Tek knows, the kid has range. To get all of these together are special and we’re honored to share it with everybody here.
