The Romanian electronic music scene has seen a rapid growth in the last years with a wave of exciting DJs and producers that have emerged and have been more and more appreciated locally and internationally.
Cristi , better known as Melodie, is one of the top electronic music producers to emerge out of Romania, and you can justify this by his first EP released on Raresh's label, “Metereze”, entitled "Echo Rhythm". This record almost instantly set a new direction for the minimal techno scene locally and abroad.
The likes of taste making press such as Resident Advisor and XLR8R have both featured this contemporary star, and his ‘Acid Sunday’ cut also made it into their 2015 end of the year lists as one of the best.
Soon after, in 2016, he received an invitation to be part of the first Boiler Room in Romania.
Since then, Cristi’s sound has evolved and his releases kept getting better and better. He has gone on to release on labels such as Rora, Rackmizar, Cinetic Art and a dozen of remixes showed his mesmerizing unique style which stands the test of time now becomes more and more easier to recognize.
His tracks are like little musical stories written in a minimalistic and clean style featuring warm melodies that take you in a natural psychedelic landscape. At the same time each track is different from the other, although having his unique approach to music.
Long before the Romanian wave of electronic music, when he was just 12 years old (around ’98), Cristi, started to produce music on a computer for the first time with a group of friends. After a while, when he was old enough to go out to parties, he got mesmerized by DJing and he found himself in 2005 securing a local residency in a cosy space that saw him play every Thursday, Friday and Saturday, often all night long. This allowed him to really stretch his legs, developing great DJ skills and understanding the crowd better.
The ensuing years saw Cristi getting booked and continue to play outside of Romania.
In the meantime, he worked hard on his productions, collected synthesizers and built a great studio with digital and analog gear.
He then started to get a lot of international bookings in cities such as London, Tel Aviv, Moscow, Paris, Lyon, Barcelona, Copenhagen, Berlin and many more.
He often tours in the U.S. and plays at top venues all around the country.
He played along artists such as Raresh, Richie Hawtin, Adriatique, Shaun Reeves, Cab Drivers, Priku, Marcel Dettmann, Ame, Sebastian Mullaert, Dorisburg and many more.
