London based DJ & producer Mella Dee shares his 3-part Massimo EP via W&O Street Tracks.
A dynamic offering; opening track ‘Massimo’s’ delicate keys and pulsing synths draw the listener into a comfortable nostalgia, echoing the sounds and emulating the emotions of early Dance Mania. Follow up track, ‘Head Rush’ is Mella Dee’s contemporary take on rave with thumping jungle samples and piano stabs reminiscent of a hardcore classic. Completing the EP is a darker, more atmospheric take on title track ‘Massimo’, the Horns Cru remix is a cut built to be experienced in the club.
Influenced by the likes of Underground Resistance, Floorplan and Head High, London based Ryan Aitchison aka Mella Dee is masterfully finding his sound; creating a unique blend of driving techno by fusing elements of house with essences of hardcore and jungle. Releases onDEXT Recordings, Dusky’s 17 Steps and Sweden based Omena Recordshave helped gain huge support from the likes of Alan Fitzpatrick, Bicep,Skream, Tijana T, George Fitzgerald and Len Faki.
