As a promoter, performer, and architect of the New England music scene over the past 15 years, Jay Giacoppo, a.k.a. DJ Melee, has cemented his reputation as a top US artist and DJ. With his successful co-creation of the Monism Music imprint and now his own Sturdy Recordings, DJ Melee is expanding beyond his role as the US tech-funk diplomat into a global juggernaut.
Always a glutton workhorse, DJ Melee originally climbed the ladder to General Manager of Satellite Records Boston and Mass Music, while balancing his duties as promotions manager/resident DJ for the former award-winning Avalon Boston, and Regional Director for the Red Bull Music Academy, while maintaining a busy schedule of performances and sharing the bill with the majority of dance musics biggest names. For most this would be a full plate; for DJ Melee, too much is never enough.
With a full schedule ahead, including the launch of his newest label Sturdy Recordings, remixes by himself and collaboration as Beat the System, residency at Royale Boston and a label compilation in the works, the gravity surrounding DJ Melee continues to draw laurels from every direction. But the kind words and support of industry leaders have only made him work harder, never content, always considering the next step; always maintaining that success is a journey, not a destination.
