coloured 12" Vinyl UK

The alias of London-based producer Ryan Aitchison, Mella Dee’s ascent has been rapid. Unafraid to experiment with an array of musical styles, his output has garnered support from key figures in the industry; from Daniel Avery to The Black Madonna, and Bicep to Radio Slave. Last year’s Techno Disco Tool hit the top spot in BBC Radio 1’s dance music chart and was crowned of ‘Tune Of The Week’ from Radio 1 tastemaker Nick Grimshaw. Not only this, but his fledgling label was awarded the accolade of ‘Best Breakthrough Label’ in the DJ Mag Best Of British awards. More recently, he was named one of Mixmag’s ‘Stars of the year’ for 2018 and also put out his debut Essential Mix for the legendary BBC Radio 1 series. [info from label]
