Denis Sulta B2B Mella Dee
Denis Sulta has rapidly emerged as one of the most exciting new prospects from the ever-fertile Glasgow scene. His unique sound has been carefully crafted having earned his stripes and a large part of his musical education and knowledge through working at the internationally renowned Rubadub record store, whilst holding down regular and ongoing sets at the world famous Sub Club.
Having honed his craft under the guidance of some of the most respected local selectors, DJs and producers, Denis Sulta has garnered multiple releases with his early signing to Dixon Avenue Basement Jams in 2014. Since then he has showed his dominating abilities within the electronic music industry noted by his opulent and punchy releases on Numbers and most recently his own imprint, Sulta Selects.
Sulta’s meticulous and diverse approach to dance music has seen his stand out capabilities reach unbelievable new heights for someone still so young. Continued praise and support from fellow DJs and producers such as Jackmaster, Skream, Four Tet, and Optimo have aided Denis Sulta, and ultimately, his incredible hard work has allowed him to play alongside and work on projects for Annie Mac both at Radio 1 and at the legendary Space, Ibiza.
The prodigal producer has successfully graduated from the Red Bull Music Academy in Montreal with his records playing on the radio and in nightclubs the world over.
Mella Dee, 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.
Influenced by the likes of Underground Resistance, Floorplan and Head High, London based Ryan Aitchison 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 and Sweden based Omena Records helped gain huge support from the likes of Daniel Avery, The Black Madonna, Bicep, Radio Slave, Tijana T, Spencer Parker and Len Faki.
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 label project.
Following the breakthrough success of ’Techno Disco Tool’; reaching number 1 in BBC Radio 1’s Dance Music chart and Nick Grimshaw’s ‘Tune of The Week’, in addition to his Warehouse Music imprint winning the ‘Best Breakthrough Label’ award at the DJ Mag awards, Mella Dee is rapidly becoming one of the most sought after names in dance music.
