Mercury 2nd Birthday with Mella Dee
Mansion Underground, York
Saturday, 28 Apr 2018 at 11:00pm - Sunday, 29 Apr 2018 at 4:00am
For our 2nd birthday we thought we'd treat you all to something a little bit special. Mella Dee, the man behind what is considered by many as the tune of 2017, Techno Disco Tool is coming to Mansion Underground and we couldn't be more excited.
Influenced by the likes of Underground Resistance, Floorplan and Head High, London based Ryan Aitchison is masterfully finding his sound; creating a unique blend of driving techno by fusing elements of house with essences of hardcore and jungle. Releases on DEXT Recordings and Sweden based Omena Records helped gain huge support from the likes of Daniel Avery, The Black Madonna, Bicep, Radio Slave, Tijana T, Spencer Parker and Len Faki.
Growing up in South Yorkshire, Mella Dee’s early musical influences originated from the sounds coming out of warehouses in and around his stomping ground. This soon developed into a love of the burgeoning scene and audio palette from warehouse parties worldwide; house, bleeps, techno and everything in between. With a respectful nod to the impact this had on him, Aitchison strives to create his own take on warehouse music with his new label project.
Lineup: MELLA DEE (3 hour set) + Residents.
