published on 06.04.17

We are very happy to announce that Melvo Baptiste is to join the Defected A&R team, digging deep for Glitterbox, Soul Heaven and Soulfuric Recordings, allowing us to once again broaden our musical reach and knowledge.

He will also be presenting and curating the new weekly Glitterbox Radio Show, which kicks off next week and will provide a place for people to indulge in the finest classic sounding house and disco from across the decades. Melvo will be speaking to a guest selector each week, which will include Glitterbox residents, house music icons and disco legends.

For now though, check out the first Glitterbox Radio Show w/ Simon Dunmore...

Melvo Baptiste: "I couldn’t be happier to be joining the already stellar team at Defected Records. I have spent many years supporting records that have become iconic hits for the label, now to be part of future flagship moments makes the hairs stand on my arms. Over the years I have made a hobby of immersing myself in the world of soul & disco, this means that Glitterbox holds a very special place in my heart. It’s an honour to be presenting the new weekly radio show where I’ll be talking to some of the world’s biggest DJs/Artists and also providing a weekly sound track of all things house & disco from across the decades.

Simon Dunmore: "We are building for the future. Melvo knows how to play, digs deep when needed and has superstar potential! Big signing for Defected Records!"
