It’s taken from the ‘Autumn Sampler’ EP on Waze & Odyssey’s Street Tracks…

Mella Dee lands on Waze & Odyssey’s Street Tracks imprint with ‘Franco’ on the ‘Autumn Sampler’ EP. We’ve got the exclusive premiere of the track below.

Mella Dee, real name Ryan Aitchison, has been on fine form this year, turning in an impeccable Feel My Bicep Podcast as well as remixing the Belfast duo’s ‘Satisfy’. It’s a rework that has been huge all summer, and a regular in the sets of Maceo Plex, Laurent Garnier, Skream and many more.

On ‘Franco’, Aitchison builds a techno roller on string-like-synths and his inimitable trademark kicks. Speaking about the release, he said, “Franco is a techno/house stomper loaded with a reese bassline.”

Listen to the exclusive premiere of Mella Dee’s ‘Franco’ below and buy it on Beatport.
