MC Melodee

MC Melodee

Straight out of Amsterdam, MC Melodee is the front woman of soulful hip hop band La Melodia. Releasing her first La Melodia album with legendary Japanese label Handcuts in 2007, MC Melodee positioned herself as the hottest European female on the mic. With La Melodia she toured through Europe on the Stones Throw tour with Oh No, Guilty Simpson, Percee P and DJ Romes.
After Europe, the demand for her music was growing internationally and she began to perform all over the globe. She performed in the USA (such as at Q-Tip & Rich Medina’s night Open at Santos Party House), Japan, Africa, Indonesia and of course all over Europe. Her second release “Electronic Love” was spread worldwide together with Holland’s most well known blogger Nalden, and includes a remix by world famous producers Cookin’ Soul. This collaboration led to the release of MC Melodee’s first solo project “Check Out Melodee” in 2012. On this mixtape, which is mainly produced by Cookin Soul, MC Melodee collaborates with different artists such as Mac Miller, Smiff n Wessum, Chuck Inglish (Cool Kids), Ohno, Mucho Muchacho, Griffi and DJ Whoo Kid.

After the success of this mixtape MC Melodee decided to do an official album called “My Tape Deck” together with the Spanish production team, in April 2013. This 90’s inspired hip hop album, which was released on Jakarta Records in Germany, is a more personal album and has features on it by Bootie Brown / The Pharcyde and Jetlife rapper Fiend. In 2013 Melodee visits the US (NY, LA, NO) to perform at CMJ NY, record videos and hit the studio with respectable US hip hop artists. In 2014 this leads to the release of 3 different EP’s with featurings and productions by US artists: AG (D.I.T.C.), Illa J, Chuck Inglish, Like (Pac Div) and others. The video singles for Coolin EP, In My Zone EP and “Crunch Time” EP were recorded in Amsterdam, New York, Mexico and Valencia (Spain). Melodee’s international appeal is confirmed by her First European Tour which takes place that same year (spring 2014). Together with DJ EZD Melodee performs in many European cities in France, Poland, Germany, Sweden, Spain, Switzerland, Italy and much more. After a memorable performance on HipHopKemp (CZ) & Bahidora (MEX) more international music collaborations and shows all over Europe follow in 2015. This leads up to an official MC Melodee EU Tour early 2016. MC Melodee’s new album “Passport Pimpin” produced entirely by Cookin Soul is next up, and is released July 8th 2016 on the German label Vinyl Digital. For this album the artists decide to mix different influences to create new and contemporary sounds. Neosoul meets trap, meets the golden era, which can be heard on the first two videosingles “Place Is Lit” and “Find My Way” which are recorded in Bangkok (TH) and Albufera, Valencia (ES). Read more
