DJ Ultra Mel

Ultra-Mel could dance before she could walk. Propped up between mattresses she would jiggle to the Police's De do do do, De da da da. She was destined for a life with an endless soundtrack and happened to fortuitously fall into DJing.
Ultra-Mel started DJing professionally in 2009 and she has been serving up dessert to dance floors ever since. She began with private parties and was soon offered a residency at Gin in Greenside. All the while refining what worked to get people dancing, she could be seen playing at Town Hall and was a regular feature at the gritty underground club in Braamies known as Kitcheners. There she played alongside the likes of Andrew the DJ and Felix Laband.
With her ability to mix genres and eras she was soon a known name on the wedding circuit and also appeared at various corporate functions (PG Bison, Magna Carta, Steinhoff etc.) and many private functions. She has recently become a preferred supplier for Katy’s Palace Bar in Kramerville and can be spotted behind the decks at the jam packed open bar events. A major career highlight was playing to over 1400 white clad revellers at Johannesburg's first Diner en Blanc event, appearing after Flash Republic.
Ultra-Mel's style ranges from swing - indie - rock - pop - classics - soul to everything in between. It is her ability to read a crowd - to instinctively steer a set according to what works at that particular moment for that particular group of people - that sets her apart. Air punches and broken heels are commonplace at Ultra-Mel's gigs, both from the folks on the dance floor and from Ultra-Mel herself.
