Melsen is from Spijkenisse in southern Holland, which happens to be the same city as superstar DJ Afrojack. However, the young producer is making a name for himself with his own style.

After he was gifted a drum kit at just three years old, music has been in Melsen’s blood. Citing Stevie Wonder and Michael Jackson as his biggest influences, this can he heard in the bouncy, catchy nature of his music. Melsen has one objective, and that’s to get people around the world dancing using groovy basslines and funky melodies. With his ability to play the saxophone, drums and piano, he has the skills he needs.

Melsen’s debut single ‘Feeling’ was released on Fedde Le Grand & Funkerman’s Flamingo Recordings, and scored an impressive top 10 in the another download site House chart and #39 in the main another download site chart. It also featured in the iTunes USA Dance chart, and was #6 in the Night edition of DMC’s Buzz Chart. ‘Alarm’ woke up Steve Angello, Dada Life and Ummet Ozcan who all supported, and it was placed in iTunes USA’s Hot Tracks too. Melsen’s edit of ‘Arabian Nights’ by Francesco Diaz & Jay Frog created quite a stir, and was played by Sick Individuals, Michael Woods and Danny Avila. After that, Melsen took to his SoundCloud to host ‘Brooklyn’, amassing 88k streams overnight – podcast support came from Oliver Heldens, DANNIC and Fedde Le Grand. To add to that, Nicky Romero supported Melsen’s ‘Solar’ collab with Raven & Vallex on his radio show and included it on his ADE 2016 compilation.

Thanks to continuing DJ support from Axwell, David Guetta and Hardwell plus many more, Melsen is looking like he’s going to be the next superstar. The support is well deserved, as Melsen has released music on Fedde Le Grand and Funkerman’s Flamingo Recordings, Big & Dirty Recordings and Nicky Romero’s Protocol Recordings. Kryder knows talent when he sees it, and was a massive supporter of Melsen’s remix of ‘Another Chance’ by Tom & Hills featuring JS16. He was so impressed that he signed a track to his own Sosumi label. Melsen also has an exciting collaboration coming up with Tom Tyger – get ready.

It’s isn’t hard to tell that 2016 has been big for Melsen and 2017 looks set to be even bigger.
