60 Seconds with: DJ Melodie

After a successful 16 years experience of DJing at some of the best club nights in the UK, Melodie decided to set up a DJ Academy to help encourage more females to enter the world of DJing. Her time is now split mentoring and working on new music in the studio. Before she performs at the launch event of our Leeds pop-up we stole a quick minute of her time to find out more about her melodic life...

Describe your perfect day… 
A prefect day would be lying on a hot, beautiful beach, headphones on listening to some amazing music with a drink in hand - total bliss!


Guiltiest pleasure…
Chocolate. But musically, Kate Bush.

Describe your music in 3 words… 
You will dance!

Career highlight…
Playing at Gatecrasher Sound System festival and having the smallest most intimate tent but the happiest crowd and vibe - it was special!

I also love seeing students that I’ve taught playing out for the first time and living their dream.



Next music venture…
Expanding my DJ Academy. There's lots of exciting plans in the pipeline!

Where you find inspiration...
Daily? From everywhere! I listen to lots of different genres of music and love discovering new artists and studying lyrics. When making music, it can range from chilled lounge to disco to techno. 

Favourite artist...
Prince, musical genius.

Dream place to headline...
Somewhere like Coachella would be cool!

Favourite place in the world (and why)…
Santorini, it’s so romantic and the most stunning place.

Life motto…
Music is the answer
