Phazed and Le Freak Records are incredibly proud to present… Mella Dee! Influenced by the likes of Underground Resistance, Floorplan and Head High, London based Ryan Aitchison aka Mella Dee 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, Dusky’s 17 Steps and Sweden based Omena Records have helped gain huge support from the likes of Alan Fitzpatrick, Bicep, Skream, Tijana T, George Fitzgerald and Len Faki. After starting his label Warehouse Music in 2017, which won DJ Mag’s breakthrough label of the year, Mella Dee has seen nothing but success. With one of this biggest crossover hits of the year ‘Techno Disco Tool’ he received support from Annie Mac and Denis Sulta, to Nick Grimshaw and Idris Elba.

A producer defined by a willingness to experiment with a wide range of sounds, concepts and landscapes, has never limited himself in his approach to making music. 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; hardcore, 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.

We can’t wait to welcome him to the Reading Rooms for his Dundee debut.
