BANDE DES QUATRES PRECIOUS METALS MIXTAPE BY MELO-X

Here is a sick mix coming from the design studio of our upcoming designers, Erin Wahed of Bande Des Quatres. Erin teamed up with her friend MeLo-X on this installation of the Precious Metals Mixtape. Read the following for more info on the collaboration and the creators…

With a number of artistic outlets, MeLo-X prefers the title of “creator” rather than boxing himself into a single role as a musician. MeLo’s releases as a producer and performances as an MC straddle the line between electronica and soul, often veering into house and hip-hop. This diversity as an artist shines in the recent album “Zulu Guru”, a collaborative hip-hop-soul project with singer-songwriter Jesse Boykins III.

Also an avid DJ and remixer, MeLo-X created this Precious Metals Mix by taking cues from the “ancient simplicity” of Bande des Quatres’ Carel ring. The lazy, dusty jaunt of Royal Canoe’s “Summersweat” and sparkling pulses of Machinedrum’s “What Not” and Stubborn Heart’s “Starting Block” reflect elements of MeLo’s own production style–listen for his groove-focused remixes of Dana Buoy’s “Delicate Suitor” and Rihanna’s “Stay.”
