Melt with Tama Sumo, Lakuti, Arnaud Le Texier
The return of Tama…
This February, Melt is going to be seriously feeling the love. Back in a small, intimate setting with heart-shaped, secluded archways aplenty, Cupid is going to be absolutely all over this party. And what could be more romantic then having two DJs grace the decks that have sworn their lives to one another? In health, sickness and banging beats, Melt presents the timeless Tama Sumo and her partner in crime, Lerato Khathi.
“Tama Sumo’s first appearance under the Melt spotlight back in the summer of last year heralded the first time we really felt the night was starting to hit the right notes”, comments Melt. As the crowd rocked on around her, Tama showcased an abundance of emotion, sexiness and a little bit of edge. Her disco infused, hard-hitting style simply had Melt howling for more. Having then caught the Panorama Bar resident play in Berlin for Cassy‘s birthday in November, “…it was a no brainer to invite her back for a second bite at the cherry”, explains Melt.
Standing side by side with her on the night will be none other than the Uzuri label supremo, Lerato Khathi aka Lakuti. Her label, which stands for ‘beauty’ in Swahili, is home to big scene players such as Jus-Ed, Levon Vincent and DJ Qu, which gives you some indication of what you can expect from her music on the night. Emanating from one of South Africa’s most culturally diverse regions, Soweto, Lakuti has lived and breathed dance music for many years now and Melt couldn’t be more excited to have her showcase her politically aware, soulful style in London’s East-end.
Naturally the night just wouldn’t be quite right without a little red-hot resident action either. The dishy Maura will be up first, rocking it for your delight and delectation. Also feeling the love bug on the night will be Arnaud Le Texier, whose label, Safari Electronique, continues to go from strength to strength.
With your January detoxes out of the way and those bank balances starting to sprout some green shoots of recovery, this is the perfect chance to dust off those dancing shoes for a pre-valentines love in.

Melt Music 5 : Nick Hoppner & Tama Sumo
Melt embraces that Berlin essence…
By now it should be no surprise to anyone what Melt has lined up for London. The team at Melt continuously push the night with a distinct pedigree of DJs that are not chosen for necessarily their notoriety, but simple for the sound which they are smashing out. This time round it seems they will follow on from their Berlin theme, from when they had Ryan Elliott rock the place, and have called upon two of Berlin’s finest to share the decks with residents Arnaud Le Texier, Maura and Monika Ross.
