Glitter Box: The Newest Authority in Disco, House and Soul
A familiar voice on Mi-Soul, Melvo is part of a new generation on the station. His pedigree as a selector of soulful rarities coupled with his fresh approach to bringing to life the golden eras of disco and groove makes him a natural voice for Glitterbox.
The Glitterbox Takeover will document the progression of Soul into disco into House, getting to the very essence of ‘dance music’ in its truest sense; music which moves your body and your soul. Melvo’s standout selections are the ones which capture a universal spirit, with iconic grooves that have been creatively revisited again and again. Capturing the hedonism of the Glitterbox extravaganza, the show will be nuanced with all-time house classics, euphoric disco standards and electro-funk rarities.
The last Wednesday of every month, two hours of Glitterbox Takeover from 7pm, hosted by Melvo Baptiste.
Melvo Baptiste has been a resident DJ for Norman Jay’s Good Times sound system for many years, mixing numerous styles and genres from House, Hip Hop, Neo Soul, Funk, Rare Groove and Jazz.

Alongside cousin Russ Jay, they DJ & produce together under the name LoudMinorityDJs. They have had some solid releases on reputable house labels, including Killax Records. The boys hold residencies all across London, their distinct style of deep, melodic and soulful house music is very much in demand.
