#TBT – Show Me Pound Cake Ft. Jay-Z, Ellie Goulding, Chris Brown & Kid Ink


Since you guys have listened to this track well over a half a million times, I thought I would share it for #TBT. I took the original Ellie Goulding sample from “Pound Cake” and made a completely new beat out of it… and then threw Kid Ink and Chris Brown on top.  Ok, go ahead, call it a “mashup.” See if I care. Tear.

Trina Ft. Killa Mike – Look Back At Me (MBS Remix). MBS IS MY NEW PROJECT!


New project alert!!!! MBS is a collaboration between Skinny Friedman and Scott Melker, two veteran east coast club DJ’s who cut their teeth in the vaunted post-millenial scene in Philadelphia. Their production takes the sound of the timeless, percussive bangers that ruled the clubs a decade ago at around 93 bpm, and updates it for the EDM era. Their inspiration is early Neptunes, Swizz Beats, Mannie Fresh, Beats By The Pound and, of course, Lil Jon.

The first MBS release is a remix of Trina and Kiler Mike’s nasty “Look Back At Me”. Trina’s 2008 single flew somewhat under the radar but has aged well and remains a hidden gem for both Scott and Skinny. The remix reassembles the original drums over synth stabs and 808’s. It also preserves Trina’s awesome claim that her ass is “big like the sun”.

This remix is the tip of the iceberg for the duo. With a growing stockpile of tracks, MBS aims to release a collection of tracks with rappers and stand-alone songs by the end of 2014.

#TBT Capital Cities – Safe And Sound (The Melker Project Remix)

Capital Cities Safe And Sound The Melker Project

People seem to like when I play the piano, as evidenced by the amazing comments on my new remix of “Latch.” I also played the piano on my remix of “Safe & Sound.” You guys seemed to like that as well. And it’s #TBT. So, yeah, here’s another remix with lots of piano.

Disclosure – Latch (The Melker Project Remix)


Latch” is arguably the best song to make it to the pop charts in a number of years. That’s because it’s not really a pop song. It’s an incredible house track that takes me back to the Body N’ Soul days in NYC.

When I listen to the song and Sam Smith’s voice, I can’t help but hear the track cut in half and turned into a moodier slow jam… so I created just that. This is an acoustic version anchored by melodic pianos, with low key cymbals, strings and bass added in for extra flavor. I hope you like it – this is definitely one of my favorite pieces that I have created. Please HEART IT ON HYPEM HERE!

The Melker Project – Loyal Ft. Chris Brown


“Loyal” is a popular song. What do I hear when I listen to this track? A slowed down, dub version with a Nudisco flare. At least I think that is how this would be categorized. What do I know, I just make these songs. Download it for FREE right HERE! Huge thanks to JAYELAUDIO for the premiere! Heart on Hypem HERE!

He does an amazing Q&A on his website with people from sports/entertainment/politics/whatever. He was kind enough to feature me in a lengthy, in-depth interview. You can read it HERE. We discussed everything from my creative process to me sleeping in Celine Dion’s broom closet wearing a shirt that says “I’m Celine’s Bitch Boy.”
