Debut album Melt is Stevie R's platform to bring the rebetiko music that he was raised on, sounds that he believes are a real healing tool, to a wider audience. On the album - which unites the sounds of his childhood with music from Greece's neighbouring countries - he worked alongside the Egyptian poet and glitch producer CERPINTXT and Turkish singer/songwriter Djanan Turan.

Red Lemon opens Part III, overflowing with percussion against the backdrop of a heady bassline. Acid Tri takes the album back into more electronic territory, fast-paced and layered with the enthralling vocal talent of Djanan Turan. Penultimate song Tsari is the beginning of the end of Melt's journey. A powerful plethora of sounds sit atop a growling bass. Intense and rhythmic, it's slow burning and chaotic with somewhat supernatural vocals. The album closes with Misirlu, the perfect antidote to its predecessor. The pace is slowed and a calm ambience adds to its presence giving the listener space to breathe, whilst instilling an essence of reflection, asking the listener to take stock of the journey that they've been on. Was it all a dream?
