When you walk away from six-figure job offers to pursue the art of making music, you have an enormous amount of passion, talent, or a combination of the two.
Such was the case for producer and DJ Scott Melker. It was the right move - during his seventeen years in music, Melker has played alongside legends in the industry such as Future, Snoop Dogg, Wiz Khalifa, Crosby Still & Nash, Neyo, Sheryl Crow, T.I., Jason Derulo, Public Enemy, Kanye West, DJ AM, Steve Aoki, A-Trak and more. Trained in the true turntablist fashion, has also performed at private events around the globe for celebrities and public figures including Billy Joel, Donna Summer, Britney Spears, Mariah Carey, Donald Trump and even President Barack Obama.
His talent, however, transcends his duties behind the decks. His productions have topped charts around the world, including 5 number 1 hits on The Hype Machine. His remixes, which initially transformed the name Scott Melker into a viral phenomenon, have been spotlighted by VH1, Fuse TV, Billboard, Prefix Magazine, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and Paper Magazine (to name a few). Before having all of his tracks removed from Soundcloud in copyright disputes, Melker had acquired over 30 million total listens.
In an age oversaturated with run-of-the-mill producers, it would appear the key to success lies in heavy marketing. Despite all the noise in the industry, though, Melker has managed to command a global audience organically. The key, according to him, is simple:
“Understand people and their experiences, and use music as an emotional currency. Give somebody a piece of their childhood back through a classic record, but slice, dice and blend it so that it’s fresh and original. Make it your own.” –Scott Melker
Drawing inspiration from a diverse and genre-savvy catalog of records, Melker is among the few selectors challenging the mainstream surge of recycled melodies, lackluster bangers and cookie cutter hits. Whether he’s working in the studio, behind the decks at an intimate lounge, or on stage at a festival mixing live for a crowd of 35,000, Melker never loses sight of three invaluable commandments: understand the audience, maintain the flow and always serve good music.
