Straight out of Amsterdam, MC Melodee is the front woman of soulful hip hop band La Melodia. Releasing her first La Melodia album with legendary Japanese label Handcuts in 2007, MC Melodee positioned herself as the hottest European female on the mic. With La Melodia she toured through Europe on the Stones Throw tour with Oh No, Guilty Simpson, Percee P and DJ Ro-mes.
After Europe, the demand for her music was growing internationally and she began to perform all over the globe. She performed in the USA (such as at Q-Tip & Rich Medina’s night Open at Santos Party House), Japan, Africa, Indonesia and of course all over Europe. Her second release “Elec-tronic Love” was spread worldwide together with Holland’s most well known blogger Nalden, and includes a remix by world famous producers Cookin' Soul. This collaboration led to the release of MC Melodee’s first solo project "Check Out Melodee" in 2012. On this mixtape, which is mainly produ-ced by Cookin Soul, MC Melodee collaborates with different artists such as Mac Miller, Smiff n Wes-sum, Chuck Inglish (Cool Kids), Ohno, Mucho Muchacho, Griffi and DJ Whoo Kid.
After the success of this mixtape MC Melodee decided to do an official album called "My Tape Deck" together with the Spanish production team, in April 2013. This 90’s inspired hip hop album, which was released on Jakarta Records in Germany, is a more personal album and has features on it by Boo-tie Brown / The Pharcyde and Jetlife rapper Fiend. In 2013 Melodee visits the US (NY, LA, NO) to perform at CMJ NY, record videos and hit the studio with respectable US hip hop artists. In 2014 this leads to the release of 3 different EP’s with featurings and productions by US artists: AG (D.I.T.C.), Illa J, Chuck Inglish, Like (Pac Div) and others. The video singles for Coolin EP, In My Zone EP and Crunch Time EP were recorded in Amsterdam, New York and Valencia (Spain). Melodee’s international appeal is confirmed by her first European Tour which takes place that same year (spring 2014). Together with DJ EZD Melodee performs in many European cities in France, Poland, Germany, Sweden, Spain, Switzerland, Italy and much more.
