Malcolm WeLove

In the late 80s, Malcolm (then under the name DJ Emelle) began Djing on local pirate radio station People’s FM supplying his local community with a show consisting of mainly Hip Hop and house music, whilst beginning to make very basic hip hop and house beats.

By the early nineties having played a few parties and secured regular spots at the infamous blues parties in Leeds a the time Twilight and Sonny’s, Malcolm teamed up with Dougie Bug and DJ Beks to form production team Cromatone Express.

The team relocated to London and released a few tracks on labels including Dave Beer’s Back to Basics and Afrocat, run by Matt Jam Lamont.

Once the UK Garage scene had “developed” into a more MC led sound, Cromatone Express decided to opt out and DJ Emelle was no more as Malcolm set about concentrating on developing his production skills over “serious” Djing and earned a living as a professional DJ in many of London’s bars such as 10 Rooms, Smollensky’s and Noble Rot.

In 2008 after a return to his hometown of Leeds, wanting to fill a deep and soulful music void in he city, Malcolm held the first Afro Coalition parties which led to hosting the of Peven Everett at The Wardrobe as part of a group including Dean Creole, Sy Legg, and Euan Mitchel, amongst others such as Jagga of Very Soulful Productions.

The four members continued Djing and hosting parties in the city, attracting great names such as Phil Asher, Atjazz, Spen, Karizma and Jazzy Jeff whilst being invited to DJ on events alongside the likes of Frankie Knuckles, Norman Jay, Gilles Peterson and Lil Louis plus were asked to play at the last ever Southport Weekender.

With a monthly residency in the city plus a monthly Radio Show on KMAH Radio in 2016 Malcolm launched record labels RedKyte Records and AfroCo Music to release his and his AfroCo crewmembers music plus other unknown and more established producers.
