Navin ‘Melo.Nade’ Huq was born and raised in Calgary, Canada. Growing
up with hip-hop culturists, he learned the art of digging at an early age, which resulted in an insatiable addiction for finding those hard to find gems. As a child, he would spend time recording mix tapes (yes, cassettes) o the radio, TV, and his dad’s records; satisfying his instinctive nature to sequence tracks. Navin acquired his first set of turntables in 2003, and that’s when Melo.Nade was born. Originally on the hip-hop tip, he experimented with mash ups and tempo changes before the age of Serato and digital DJ’ing. Countless hours were spent in the progression of turntablism and fusing the worlds of trip hop, hip-hop, funk and breaks into an eclectic vibe.
More recently, the Melo.Nade sound has evolved to embody a term he coined as Heavy Chill – downbeat, yet heavy hitting. His endeavors in music production are sculpting
a fresh sound that fuses classical and ethnic music with electronic bass music.
The basis of the vibe is owing and non-repetitive.
In every set, he strives to take you on a walk through music; not just
through his tight mixing, but also by seamlessly incorporating lay-ers of purposeful cuts/effects and lush melodies. Melo.Nade’s
imaginative and intelligent persona is expressed through his
music by delivering bass-driven grooves while maintaining the
melodious merit that’s often lost in electronic translation.
Melo.Nade’s diverse experience gives him the edge to read
crowds and adapt. No set is the same as he stays true to the
musical art form of DJ’ing.
