ROOF.FM owes to Rob Mello. It was probably his penchant for fleshy and bouncing house tracks which led to the unearthing of a long-sought-after gem: Spinning records in a Geneva club some five years ago like a true master, Rob put on the ominous banger I had been looking for ever since the early nineties. Rob told me it was a Masters at Work remix from 1992, their first ever: a simply-wrought, but super-effective cut and not surprisingly a big hit at the Soundfactory Bar at the time. Rob himself has a lot of house history on his hands: A DJ since 1985, he co-produced the first Black Science Orchestra release, was a member of Heaven & Earth, whose fine Prescription EP is now being re-issued by the fantastic Running Back imprint. Right now he is in the process of re-booting Luxury Boot Records, a label he ran with Zaki Dee in the nineties. Also watch out for Mello’s new release coming up on Disco 45.
