MELODOWNZ’ nature is personified in his name; the rapper is a mellow yet lethal MC on the mic. Melo has a unique take on rap, with a distinctive flow and delivery that can switch from hard hitting bars to soft, melodic hooks, painting a picture in motion with his storytelling techniques and poetic lyricism. His critically acclaimed debut EP Avontales was released in July 2017, the title a play on his hometown of Avondale. The EP is conceptualised around gritty stories and fond experiences taking place in Avondale; repping his roots with a fusion of hip-hop and r&b, infused with neo-soul and elements of G-funk, jazz and reggae. The self professed Gemini phenomenon moulds a duality of raw street hip hop, balanced with conscious raising conviction.
