Melvo Baptiste

Born into a family of dancers, record collectors and music enthusiasts, his musical education was strictly based on soul, rare groove, funk and disco.

Since 2012, when Gordon Mac, the founder of Kiss FM, returned to the radio to create the new Mi-Soul station, Melvo has been performing on Saturday mornings.

In 2017, he was invited to present the flourishing radio programme Glitterbox, originally an online programme that is now on more than 40 stations worldwide, regularly number 1 position of iTunes UK podcasts.

As well as the usual Southport Weekender events, he has also performed at international festivals such as Suncébeat, Defected Croatia and Lovebox (for Mixmag).

He takes after his uncle Norman Jay MBE, Melvo has organic knowledge and passion for rare groove, soul and golden age disco, as well as classic house, contemporary soulful house and nu-disco.
