Melted Session #1- Meet the lineup

MOONBEAR 

How old are you and where are you from?

20 years old, from Rodley Leeds. 

What do you mix/produce? 

I mainly produce baseline but I also make hip-hop/ grime instrumentals, when I’m mixing its mainly baseline but I enjoy mixing a range of genres including garage, future/ bass house and drum and bass. 

What age did you get into mixing/producing?

Studying music in high school meant I got to use logic pro x and I knew the basics on how to make a track, so using the knowledge I started making my own music. I didn’t have the luxury of owning my own laptop to produce on, so my first few tracks were made on garage band for iPhone. 

Have you got anything in the works we should look out for?

Iv got countless projects that are in progress that I’m pushing myself to get released in the next few months. Going to be testing some of those out at the Melted Sessions 1 so make sure you’re there to hear some exclusives! Also going to be working on my mix series Pick ’n’ Mix as well as some collaborations, stay tuned!
