Auckland, New Zealand
With a decade's experience in producing underground radio and music television, Melissa has established a broad musical knowledge that spans genres, decades and formats, emphasizing the inclusivity of music as a shared experience. Her late night electronic radio show 'No Sleep Till Bedtime' on Auckland's 95bFM saw an organic transition to club DJ and a four year residency and curatorial role at popular local venue Cassette Nine. This saw her focus on club tunes, returning most often to bass, minimal and disco, overtly influenced by her formative clubbing experiences in the early 00's. After a year long hiatus in 2015, she has returned afresh to push the limitations of single genre DJing, incorporating new productions and multi sensory collaborations into her live sets. Don’t mistake her for a dilettante, this is a life long love of sharing music presented through a unique, evolving exploration of the role of the DJ.
