DJ and producer Melle Brown collaborates with music industry pioneer Annie Mac, who debuts her lyric writing and vocal abilities on new track, ‘Feel About You.’
‘Feel About You’ is a love letter to friendship, youth and nightclubbing. With a playful dance beat accompanied by Annie’s dulcet tones and story-like lyrics, the track is evocative of hazy days and long sultry nights, making it the perfect soundtrack for the summer. It’s a track about clubbing, destined to find its home in clubs around the world.
A blend of warm sound, a bumping bass line and jazz chords, the track was born from a house beat created by DJ/Producer Melle Brown. Additional production comes from Toddla T. When Annie Mac heard the beat, she couldn’t help but experiment with some lyrics. Weeks later, the three met up in Toddla T’s studio, where Annie lay down vocals and her own chorus.
Melle Brown’s distinct fusion of neo-soul, jazz and deep house has turned heads since the release of her EPs ‘Blossom’ and ‘Intersection’. With spins on her music coming from BBC Radio 1, BBC 6 Music, Kiss FM and more, the rising producer/DJ solidifies her tastemaker flair as a Reprezent Radio resident, and is hotly tipped by Mixmag, Notion & Beatport. As one of the few young DJs capturing an authentic view on music from eras gone-by; Melle’s deep and soulful vibrations capture emotive electronic music at its best. She has recently been announced as part of Defected’s Unsung Heroes for 2022 and has an exciting summer ahead.
Annie Mac’s impact on the music industry is nothing short of prolific. On top of presenting the most influential show on BBC Radio 1 for 17 years, she is a key figure championing female and LGBTQ+ artists and advocating for positive, inclusive change. After leaving radio to write and coming off the back of a Sunday Times Best Selling novel, ‘Feel About You’ blurs the boundaries between Annie’s love of writing fiction and her passion for music.
‘The song, is a love letter to friendship and to youth and to nightclubbing. It’s about making home from home, belonging, and the revelatory nature of music. It’s a mirror image of so many nights out I’ve been lucky enough to have… And thinking about it, the whole experience of making it was completely spontaneous and filled with a sense of freedom and fun, which is just like the story in the song.’
– Annie Mac
‘Producing Feel About You was a whirlwind experience, but what I think is so special is that sonically the track echoes precisely the incredible time we had making it together. I’m honoured Annie trusted me with her voice and empowered me as an up and coming producer artist – letting me lead and carve the direction I heard for my track, encouraging me every step of the way. I’m buzzing that everyone can now enjoy it with us!’
– DJ and producer Melle Brown
