Merseyside's very own, Melé is undeniably one of the most exciting and eclectic DJs in the scene right now, having made a name for himself over the past few years on both the UK and international gig and festival circuits. In addition to his skills behind the decks, Melé has released on a number of esteemed labels including Digital Soundboy, Grizzly and Mixpak Records. And if that wasn't enough, he's recently been recruited by Diplo to join him as a resident on his BBC Radio 1Xtra show.
Ahead of his set at Annie Mac's Lost & Found Festival , we tapped him for his top 10 (boat) party bangers. Trust us, there's some absolute belters in here so grab your headphones and get listening!
