Stream Melo-X’s Soothing and Stylish ‘Vertigo 1955′ Mix


Brooklyn’s MeLo-X is a creative powerhouse. This week, the fashion-forward emcee and photographer chose to flaunt his DJ skills with a mix for Hive titled Vertigo 1955. Musically, the mix takes its cues from his recently released EP God: LoFi, a five track project that sits somewhere along the spectrum of traditionalist boom-bap and soulful post-future bass. “I created this mix while taking care of my mom while she had a bad case of vertigo, which she suffers from time to time. It’s basically feeling like you’re in a spinning motion while standing still and this causes dizziness and nausea,” he tells Hive. “Sometimes as an indie artist we can feel like this in a way… like your moving fast but in reality your standing still in the same place.” Highlights include swooning, pop-oriented remixes of Lana Del Rey’s “Video Games” and Rihanna’s “Stay,” although Melo also includes some under-the-radar gems from other producers. “I incorporated music from up and coming artists that I either found on SoundCloud or was sent in a message.” Sit down, chill out, and cure your own case of vertigo with this pacifying mix.
