MELO-ZED

LONDON, ENGLAND

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 forthcoming debut EP ‘Eleven’, he hopes to offer a carefully crafted project, creating a rich and immersive sonic landscape reflecting his ever growing sound palette and finely tuned production style. Accompanying the project Melo-Zed has co-directed, produced and scored a short film exploring creative culture in London, and offers an intimate look into much of the context surrounding the creation of ‘Eleven’.
