Playing tracks by
Wiley, Gucci mane, Lloyd Banks, Mele, Adam F and more.
Today’s FACT mix has one of the best tracklists you’ll see anywhere, and is the work of prodigious Liverpool talent Melé.
Melé, real name Krissy Peers, is 18 years old and has been producing since he was 14, which frankly is ludicrous, annoying, and we’d like to see his passport to check that he’s not pulling an Obafemi Martins on us. Regardless of potential scams, his music’s fiery, fierce and absolute tons of fun, full of r’n'b and grime samples, lithe cowbells and claps, and show-stopping basslines. He recently released the excellent Mugged EP on Sinden’s Grizzly label, and has drops forthcoming on Hum & Buzz, Mixpak and more.
As his FACT mix proves, Melé’s also got taste for days: packed into an hour, you’ll find classic house from LFO and Marshall Jefferson, jungle from Adam F and Ruffage Kru, vintage grime from Wiley, Big $hot and Geeneus, and the best of the UK’s current club music, with exclusives from Ikonika and more. Oh, plus Daniel Bedingfield. Naturally.
