TRACKS + MIXES

Angel Mel Selector was born and bred in the heart and soul of the Bristol music scene. Coming from the West Country with her roots planted in Reggae, Drum & Bass and Trip Hop, later branching into other areas of underground dance music genres, such as Acid Jazz, Broken Beat and Deep and Soulful House.

As a selector, she specialises in playing long sets where she can weave her magic. Choosing the juiciest cuts from a wide cross section of music including; Soul, Funk, Rare Groove, Boogie, Disco, Soulful & Deep Afro House, Garage, Jazz, Broken Beat, Electronica, party anthems and Club Classics. Classes herself as a chameleon as can play most genres with enthusiasm due to her diverse knowledge of music.

She believes the music should be played the way it was intended without tricks or gimmicks; and by reading the crowd and making sure her sets are fun and inclusive, giving the audience the best experience. With her big smile and infectious energy and dance moves, she has perfected the ingredients to make any event an experience to remember.

Having had the honour of DJing alongside many of her heroes including: Dennis Bovell, Norman Jay MBE, Mad Professor, Jocelyn Brown, Jazzie B, Daddy G, DJ Spoony & Zed Bias, Huey Morgan and many more.
