[ MELTD: Interview ]
Q1: Welcome to our storm! For our readers and newly gained soon-to-be fans, who is MELTD ? Briefly walk us through your origin story and decision to choose your name!
A1: Origin story hmmmm where to begin…
Best off you could say my musical journey started off as a kid probably in about middle school when I would lead sing for a band (Young Generations). It was fun as a kid mainly would play first Fridays at Blue Star in San Antonio, Texas and small other gigs! Also, of course, like most musically influenced kids I took after school violin lessons and mainly taught myself a bunch of random rock songs on guitar.
So honestly my decision to choose my name is definitely a more hilarious one than anything…
I have always loved EDM-anything from Bass Hunter – DotA to Cascada – Everytime We Touch. I’ve always wanted to create and reproduce the same sound, but liked the idea of doing it the hard way (making my own presets etc.). So I’d often take acid and literally sit on VSTS, Ableton, etc. basically melting away at my computer sometimes for days on end til I figured it out. Hence Melt’d seemed to be a good choice
Q2: Being a Texas resident must have bigger benefits in regard to music. What has been most constructive to you in The Lone Star State?
A2: Honestly I was born & raised in Texas it literally embodies and probably pours out of every random fluid that may come out of my body. So blood, sweat, tears, etc. It’s the reason my logo is a cow skull. Idk what I’d do without it because it definitely sculpted my art and views into who I am today.
TEXAS!! (thick country accent)
Q3: Your Sampl3r track is super wild. It looks as if your music varies in genres often such as in comparison to Idek Bruv. Where does that inspiration come from?
A3: It’s literally just all creative to me I love that aspect. I never wanted to be like anyone else and I pride myself on veering away from the norm as much as possible! Every sound I make I try to completely um, fuck it up… I guess as much as possible and I love that aspect. So just like back in the day I’ll spend easily weeks if not months on tracks tweaking knobs til I get whatever I feel is necessary. “Art”.
Q4: What can your fans expect for the rest of 2020? What about anticipate for 2021?
A4: So honestly quite a bit… I currently have a lot of unreleased that my manager Justin and I are strategically planning to release! As well I’m apart of a SICK duo called OKTO (ok 2) which is a major love of mine as well! So in between my own stuff as well as our collabs (a good 8 unreleased tracks already) as well as our content currently out, I plan to just keep pushing shows such as Dirty Monkey on the 4th. But also plan to just keep pushing art out! I love Photoshop and making stuff in Premier Pro, I definitely want to release some more video content soon so honestly a whole lot. Which is dope!
Q5: Who do you see killing it in your area and beyond? Give them a shout-out!
A5: So, a lot of homies…

LovelyBones– fairly new homies but honestly they are ride or dies already so super stoked for them
Zeke Nasty – so this is the guy also in OKTO with me and I honestly couldn’t hype this guy up enough. He’s taught me a lot is a genuine dude and has been killin it from past projects like Zeke & Zoid til now with tons of new music and just creative juice the kids honestly one to watch. Love that guy for real!
