BREAKTHROUGH British DJ and producer Mella Dee leads the bank holiday weekend line-up at Workington's Electric Soup.

The Yorkshireman, who kicked off the year at number one in BBC Radio 1’s Dance Music chart, heads to the Jane Street night club on Sunday May 27, joined by Charlie Rope and Manchester's Reeta - the winner of Lost in Music's 2018 DJ competition - as well as residents Carl Tait and Jonny Donat.

Mella Dee, real name Ryan Aitchison, is defined by his willingness to experiment with a wide range of sounds, concepts and landscapes.

Influenced by the likes of Underground Resistance, Floorplan and Head High, the London-based producer is masterfully finding his sound, creating a unique blend of driving techno by fusing elements of house with essences of hardcore and jungle.

Releases on DEXT Recordings and Sweden-based Omena Records helped gain huge support from the likes of Daniel Avery, The Black Madonna, Bicep, Annie Mac, Radio Slave, Tijana T, Spencer Parker and Len Faki, while his Warehouse Music imprint was named Best Breakthrough Label at the DJ Mag awards.

He arrives in Workington for a massive three-hour session, fresh off the back of a high-profile B2B set at Lost & Found Festival in Malta alongside Denis Sulta and Mall Grab.

The event at Electric Soup on Sunday May 27 starts at 9pm, and tickets are available in advance at a reduced rate via www.tickettannoy.com or on the door at full price.
