Since the launch of our website, the focus has shifted significantly to finding and linking up with talented acts the world over – where African artists take preference. We still value the old way of finding music and the people that make it and that happens through recommendations made by friends, family and friendly like-minded strangers.
We came across yet another talented producer, MelV, from the East Rand region, which is comprised of the border towns surrounding Johannesburg. MelV is another young artist who is hell-bent on carving a name for himself in history and it seems as if he is not letting anything deter him from becoming a household name in the South African music industry.
MelV’s production style consists of different layers of modern sounds accompanied by a unique trap-influenced bop that gives it a fresh sound. After going through 36 track strong catalogue on Soundcloud, one is forced to be enamored with the talent MelV posses. He can easily switch from Deep House to bouncy trap that to Boom Bap which further reinforces his strongest quality as a producer – being versatile. He’s been uploading songs on Soundcloud since 2013 and the progression from his first upload Rockstar to his most recent upload titled Batman (MelV Remix) is staggering and unquestionably impressive.
MelV also happens to be one of rising Johannesburg based producer, KaeB’s friend and frequent collaborator which can only mean one thing – their friendship could never be without inspiration to create music.
Follow MelV on Soundcloud. We’re definitely going to be covering more of him on our platforms.
