Inspired by music of the Bahamas, her cousin Anthony Kiedis from the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and the underground sounds of the legendary Simon’s in Gainesville … Melanie Moore’s career as a DJ had to happen. Growing up in South Florida and sailing through the islands, Melanie danced on the docks and dabbled in percussion at big game fishing tournaments from the time she was 3. Classical guitar training and the French horn followed before she realized turntables and a mixer would become her key instruments and house music would be the way.
She has performed professionally as a house and techno DJ since 1995 and spent the majority of that time between New York City, Colorado and Santa Fe where she lives today. A product of the early 90s Simon’s days, the Twilo days in New York and starry nights under the New Mexico skies, her sound is a combination of the beautiful and the scary, the sexy and sophisticated, the slamming and eclectic.
Melanie formed Melanie Moore Media LLC in 2006, and divides her time as a DJ and entrepreneur.In public opinion polls of the Santa Fe Reporter’s annual “Best of Santa Fe” issue, Melanie was voted in the Top 3 in 2005, 2006 and 2008.
When performing, Melanie’s devotion to the crowd and respect for their vibe dictates her set list, which evolves uniquely through out the night. She says, “My ambition each and every time is to create a seamless blend of music that people are impressed by and not always expecting. They never see me coming but I am often told, they know exactly when I get there”.
Her influences come from many different corners of the world, including the stylistic abilities of Laurent Garnier and the extended success of the Chili Peppers who remain a constant source of inspiration and reminder that anything is possible in music.
Event productions she is most well known for include Sex on Vinyl, a moniker for performances on 4 to 8 turntables with her long time companions in mixing house music;Black Swans - a series of rare and unpredicted events featuring world renowned artists such as Johnny Fiasco and Joe DiPadova ; Dancing Rams - the April showdown in NYC with collaborators Wendy Herm and Stadenco and World Cup DJs - a30 day event during the FIFA World Cup which pairs over 32 DJs with international teams in the tournament.The World Cup DJs are required to have a bloodline to the nation they represent, and as the teams are eliminated so go the DJs. By the time the semi-finals arrived, this party earned the distinction of buckling the new floor at the venue.
