BROKEN Records is proud to present the debut E.P. from Toronto based DJ/producer Melanie Sutherland. She takes you on a blissful and spiritual journey with Daydreams. From sweet, soulful vocals to classic afro- beat vibes this essential EP has something for everyone. The EP features the talents of Michelle Belmonte on vocals & Nikki Andre on keyboards on Align with the Sky, which is loungey, chill track with an afro-cuban feel combined with Nikki’s sensual vocal stylings. Also featured is Nigel Pitt on live percussion on Afroism, a funky guitar filled track that is hypnotic. Rounding out the album are Hot Pants and Starry, 2 light-hearted piano filled tracks with an incredible mood and groove!
Melanie Sutherland started off her DJ career spinning reggae at small parties and quickly branched out landing her first gig to spin house music in Detroit. Melanie plays many different genres of house but her underlying sound is deep and soulful with African and Latin vibes. She hosts her brand of SOUL on her own Mixshow on ElectronicMusicCafe.com every Thursday at 2pm (EST).
Always willing to lend a helping hand Melanie became a resident DJ at Harlem helping to raise over $100,000 for doctors without borders through the Music is the Answer series of charitable events. With her focus on the art of producing, Melanie’s first track Rastafari was released by Broken Records on the DJ Divas album in 2010. She was also blessed to have her A Walk Through the Cafe remix featured on the Chilled and Unbroken Too Album.
