Stepping up to mix Defected's coveted In The House series is Mele, a producer whose standout percussive sound and infectious energy behind the decks makes him one of the UK's most captivating, flourishing DJs. From 13-year-old bedroom DJ growing up in the Wirral to his breakout tribal anthem 'Ambience' in 2015, Mele has now fully honed his skills in production and mixing, culminating in these two mixes for 'Defected presents Mele In The House'.

Describing working on the mixes as ?like putting together a really hard jigsaw puzzle?, Mele's In The House was mixed live, charting his obsession with deconstructing tracks and echoing his DJing technique using three or four decks, looping percussion and piano parts over each other for a uniquely layered effect. The mix draws on almost 25 years of house music, focussing on the Latin, tribal and percussive, along with a couple of slick curveballs. Also in the mix are three exclusive productions from Mele himself plus 'Dancing Mist' from Joe Corti, an up-and-comer from the UK.

Following epic rolling house moments from David Mayer 'Movement', Jimpster 'Step By Step' and the jacking wonkiness of Joeski 'Acid Disco' to kick things off, Mix 1 ends with a standout brand new release from Mele himself. With live percussion from drum warrior Shovell, the cover of 'Pasilda' pumps up the track's unmistakeable rhythms and piano melody with an irresistibly hefty bassline and vocal loops. A long-time highlight of Mele's sets but until now unreleased, 'Pasilda' is an exclusive and suitably high-octane ending to part one of the compilation.

Part two of Mele In The House kicks off with the explosive Armand Van Helden production 'Loves Ecstasy' (Peak Hour Mix) bringing the carnival vibes, matched with its energy by another exclusive new Mele production. The aptly named 'Brooklyn Bounce' is Mele's ode to Danny Tenaglia, a key influence whose sought-after percussive spirit is apparent throughout the whole mix. A sophisticated pumping house cut with plenty of signature layered percussion, Mix 2 continues to build into the final Mele production 'Tribal Harmonix', the darker, more melodic and tech-inclined of the three. Further highlights include Romanthony 'Bring U Up' (Jasper James Remix) and Seven Davis Jr. 'Friends' (Eats Everything Rework) showing Mele's acute knack for a club-storming direction.

With his In The House contribution Mele shows his passion for dismantling seriously heavyweight house, engineering these mixes with impressive flair, taste, and plenty of percussive flavour.
