DJ Mel is a turntablist in the purest form of the art; the party rocker. Musically unpretentious, Stylistically eclectic." Dj Wise". Renowned as one of the most prolific djs in the business due to his wildly popular Rock the Casbah 80s parties, host of the longest running Hip Hop weekly in Texas, a Finalist in the 2004 Scion Free Your Mix contest, regularly touring across North America, all the while holding down his position as Hip Hop buyer for the hugely successful Waterloo Records in Austin Tx. "A flawless mixer, Mel always makes it a point to demonstrate the similarities between divergent styles of music, whether segueing A Tribe Called Quest into Black Sabbath, or a 50 Cent a cappella track over a Nine Inch Nails instrumental. Brazen enough to make such musical leaps, Mel is a master of true party rocking. An avid a crate digger, Mel traverses the vinyl archives for anything apt to make people bug out - physically, mentally, emotionally. An admirer of like-minded national DJs such as The Rub, Haul & Mason and DJ Z-Trip, it's no wonder unpredictability has become an asset for Mel as he continues on his quest to "put Austin on the map."
