Thumping piano-driven, bar and ballroom-blitzing beats, and a stiletto-heeled vocal, equal parts femininity and empowerment and 100% not taking any nonsense – it’s a match made in heaven, or your money back.
‘Ain’t Real’ is another Melsen special for Be Yourself Music following his hype run in 2021, a house music buccaneer grabbing you from the very first moment he gets busy on the keys and his muse clears her throat. The funkiest dancefloor dust-up you can joyfully thrust and sing along to this year – Melsen remains the man to watch.
That run over the last 12 months, culminating in clubbers finally being able to return to the thick of the action, saw Melsen drop ‘Alone’, ‘You’, Keep Loving You’, ‘California Dream’ with Hoved and ‘Try Again’ with Flexxus, an impressive Be Yourself collection continuing his mission to make “music that lifts your spirits and gives you a positive vibe”.
Recognised for this sunny disposition by Tiesto, Armin van Buuren, Nicky Romero, R3hab, David Guetta, Hardwell, Alesso, Martin Garrix and Bingo Players, Melsen’s get-up-and-go has had listeners and tastemakers flocking to Beatport’s House and main charts, the iTunes USA Dance chart and DMC’s Buzz Chart.
Vibes and melody have come as standard for dance music pillars Hexagon, Revealed, Enormous Chills and Protocol Recordings, rounding out his repertoire on top for Be Yourself offshoots Big & Dirty and ARTWRK.
A master of sounds that cross over for day into night, uniting drive and sentiment as one, if you think it ‘Ain’t Real’, you best start believing Melsen will make this year his as well.
