Mella Dee

As one half of the UKG deejay and production duo Mistamen, Mella Dee’s solo sound has evolved out of a true passion for all things garage and a perpetual dedication to hip hop, combined with a love for house music and heavy influence from the darkness of UK funky. Together, these elements have enabled Mella Dee to develop a unique approach to the fusion of these sounds, into one rugged soundscape that is simultaneously house and garage.

These foundations enabled the ambitious Mella to secure deejay sets at some of the UK’s most highly respected clubs including as Fabric, Sub Club, XOYO, Cable, Dogma and Mint Club in addition to the Outlook, Tramlines and Parklife Festivals.
