MELODOWNZ

Bio

MELODOWNZ is proof that thought-provoking, lyrical hip-hop is alive and here to stay. The Maori/Samoan artist has become a local community champion proudly taking New Zealand rap to the world stage with co-signs from Bas, Dreamville, and Flying Lotus, and collabs from the likes of Denzel Curry, Bootsy Collins, and Maxo Kream.

After years of anticipation, in 2022 MELODOWNZ unveiled his debut album, Lone Wolf, via Def Jam ANZ. The record is a tale of love, loss, and learning, rich with full circle synchronicity, duality, and spirituality that’s been a present theme throughout the Gemini rappers life. Formed across Avondale home studios, remote writing camp sessions, and an LA recording trip, the multidimensional record features collaborations with Houston gangster rapper Maxo Kream, Florida heavyweight Denzel Curry, Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter INK, singer-songwriter Bleu, Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Ant Clemons (Kanye West, Beyonce), among illustrious producer credits from Grammy-award winning producers Bizness Boi and DJ Khalil. Returning full circle to his Auckland community with collaborations from local legends Diggy Dupé, Troy Kingi and Bailey Wiley, the Avondale intermediate choir, and more, MELODOWNZ is ready to take Avondale to the world - and he’s bringing his community along with him.

2023 saw Melo tour Christchurch, Wellington and Auckland with Banished Music, wrapping the tour with a particularly special show at the Hollywood Avondale that featured an impactful performance from the Avondale Intermediate Choir. He approaches a packed summer with main stage performances at Northern Bass, Rolling Meadows, and Splore.

Winning Best Pacific Album at the Pacific Music Awards in 2023 was the ultimate honour for the Avondale rapper, and this accolade speaks to the impact his album has had on the Aotearoa community.
