Being born in the mid 80’s on the outskirts of Nuremberg, Michael Melchner witnessed the final moments of a divided Germany. Following that important decade Melchner became fascinated by electronic music and hooked on its grooves; buying vinyl, DJing and taking his first steps into music production.
Due to his particular interpretation of house and techno, Melchner won a DJ contest in his hometown in 2004, leading to him becoming resident DJ at Kiss Klub, a monthly party series in one of Nuremberg's most famous clubs "Die Rakete". Over the following years he developed from a newcomer into a renowned resident, attracting an ever-increasing fanbase who regularly visited the club especially to hear him play.
On one Kiss Klub night in 2007 he met Moon Harbour head-honcho Matthias Tanzmann, who quickly signed Melchner’s tracks for his other label Cargo Edition. One year later Michael Melchner's debut "The Things You Did EP" was released, both the music press and public reacting enthusiastically to his reduced house sound.
Step by step Melchner has climbed the ladder of success, with Matthias Tanzmann being there for his protégé along the way. Two further releases followed on Cargo Edition "You Understand" and "Four To The Floor", with the latter bolstered by a fantastic remix by Tanzmann. Melchner has since remixed the work of Alex Niggemann (Bloop), Tomas Barford (Get Physical) and Dot (Glückskind), and released a track on an Eklo sampler.
After appearing on the Ten Years of Moon Harbour compilation, the anniversary tour brought him to clubs in Spain, London and Paris, as well the famous Panorama Bar in Berlin, Robert Johnson in Offenbach and Womb in Tokyo; a remarkable career already for someone only in his mid-twenties and with so many more great years ahead of him.
