The Local Selection returns for another weekly mix, this time coming from Galway and Cork based DJ and producer, MEJMI, who contributes a blistering hour of techno, as our 155th mix to our ever growing series.
Melanie aka MEJMI (A Galway/Cork based DJ) took up Djing in the summer of 2019 as a hobby, but soon after spiralled into something unique and interesting for her, gaining interested listeners and followers on her journey.
You may have already come across MEJMI last summer, with her viral videos combining her love for traditional Irish music and dance music, as she plays the violin while Djing, which helped showcase her musicality and ability to mix styles and genres.
MEJMI was introduced into the music industry from a very early age, coming from a musical family with her father a drummer and herself playing three musical instruments. MEJMI studied four years in the Cork School of Music, perfecting her performance on the cello, piano and violin. These years helped expose her to different kinds of music, thus giving her a great understanding of rhythm, energy and flow which you can hear in her sets.
Now a keen producer, MEJMI has been making techno for the last year and a half, mixing rhythmic vocals and creating an industrial feel in her tracks. Her latest release ‘Pineapple Pain’ showcases her love for a driving bass and hypnotic lines.
You will be able to catch MEJMI in action in festivals and clubs in Cork/Mayo/Belfast and Galway in the upcoming months, but for now, make Melanie’s mix your Wednesday afternoon soundtrack.
