As you must know by now, my goal for 2017 is to be the headlining act at the single greatest event in the world, Ultra. To do this will require hard word and dedication, making connections with awesome producers who can sell me their tracks to put my name on, and finding an amazing new EDM moniker. Join me for the journey on snapchat – scott.melker.
I’m on Snapchat. If you are also on Snapchat, than let’s become friends and do Snapchat things together.
I am excited to release my newest project, “Freedom To Go.” I spent 48 hours in the streets of San Francisco, sampling the harsh and annoying sounds of traffic. My task, given to me by Carma (a company pioneering car sharing and carpooling technology), was to take these sounds and turn them into something beautiful. Using the samples and live recordings of street musicians, I created drums, synths and strings and put them together into a song that I am extremely proud of. To listen to the entire track, please visit the link at the end of the video or listen below on soundcloud.
Scott Melker – Freedom to Go – Turning Traffic into MusicSometimes, all it takes is a different point of view. The Melker Project hit the streets of the Bay Area to see if he could turn the awful sounds of traffic and congestion into something much, much better. The result? Something amazing:

Episode 5 of ADHD is now live and direct in your speaker machines. The first four episodes have been exceptionally well received, and we are now syndicated on FratMusic and Brooklyn Radio. This week’s special guest is DJ Wonder from Sway In The Morning on Shade45. He is very good at DJing… you should listen.
Here are all of the past episodes!
I am sure that you have seen the trailer for Zac Efron’s hilarious awful-but-probably-soon-to-be-popular-because-ya-know-white-people EDM movie “We Are Your Friends.” Some internet Einstein has created this brilliant redubbed trailer for what should have been… an honest appraisal of present DJ culture. I have been laughing out loud all day.
It’s no secret that I am obsessed with The Notorious B.I.G. I have remixed his tracks countless times, and find myself consistently coming back to his catalogue when I need something perfect for a track. My “Happy Birthday Biggie” soundcloud playlist no longer exists, so I thought I would share video links to some of my favorite Biggie Smalls remixes that I have done over the years.
This is what I am listening to right now. It is one of the best songs ever made. It’s called “Saturday Love,” and I am listening to it on Monday. That’s how much I like it.
New York native Scott Melker doubled down with Miami based production outfit Glow Team to produce a banging heavy-hitter that’s perfect for late night cruising and pre-party turning-up. Titled “No No Way,” the tune rides an undulating wave that coasts along on mellow, atmospheric runs before plunging into fierce, hard-hitting bass sequences.
“No No Way is a track that I started almost two years ago. I chopped up the vocal sample, trapped it out, and put it on my to-do list to finish,” said Melker. “When I met the young geniuses from Glow Team, I sent the track over and let them run with it.”
“When Melker showed us the track, we instantly knew we had to bounce on the beat. It just clicked,” added Glow Team.
After several weeks of going back and forth, both artists realized they were sitting on something special. Fans of Glow Team will hear their stamp on the track in its high-octane build-ups and frenetic sound effects, whereas Melker’s touch is apparent in the tune’s bouncing, trap-inspired rhythm and spliced vocals. Despite the ferocity of its beat and the raw intensity of its bass drops, “No No Way” is painted in a haunting and almost melancholy light by a simple three-note melody framed by evocative arpeggios.
