Defected’s very own A&R, Melvo Baptiste, is a DJ and selector by blood. Taking after his uncle Norman Jay MBE, Melvo’s organic knowledge and passion for rare groove, golden era soul and disco as well as classic house, contemporary soulful house and nu-disco makes him the ultimate good-time selector. A regular at Southport Weekender events, he’s played international festivals such as Suncébeat, Defected Croatia and Lovebox, and plays locally every week at some of London’s plushest clubs and venues. Melvo was also invited to present the burgeoning Glitterbox radio show in 2017, originally an online show that is now syndicated on over 40 stations globally and regularly frequents iTunes UK’s #1 spot for podcasts. He has been instrumental in taking Glitterbox to the next level, becoming the voice of the brand, and we can’t wait for him to take to the stage on the slopes.
