MeLo-X expresses social commentary on recent incidents that have occurred in East Flatbush Brooklyn and speaks about Police brutality and the direct effect it has on the youth and families in our communities.
MeLo-X takes us into his mind as a producer on his track “Light + Space.” “Light + Space” incorporates sparse, and ghost like vocals inspired by Laurel Halo’s original by the same name. The vocals lightly shift over a beat that elevates and transitions at very step, moving from a digital lofi sound-scape into a climax of synth sweeps and unique drum patterns. The video shot in Lac-Brome, and Knowlton, Québec, Canada is a different landscape than the city streets of East Flatbush, Brooklyn NY we associate with MeLo-X. The piece shows a woman detaching from the mundane to explore nature and the outdoors.
MeLo-X has the ability to remix music like none other. Whether he’s re-constructing it to produce a whole new track or adding his own vocals, MeLo makes every track truly his own. “Handle it” is no different. Originally a remix of Gotye’s “Somebody I Used To Know” produced by M-Phazes, MeLo decides to take this track and completely transform it into cosmic private dancer music. Handle It tells the story of an encounter with a women who moves like she’s from another planet. Enter the XXX-Files.
One of the best attributes about MeLo-X’s writing is his ability to be honest. With that being said, this is exactly what you get from his first single off his forth coming EP GOD:LoFi. MeLo genuinely speaks about paying dues and looking within himself (It’s the God,God) to control his destiny.
