LUCKY NUMBER MUSICMellah is the alias of Peckham musician and producer Liam Ramsden. His debut EP Liminality is released May 12th 2017 via Lucky Number.

Self produced in Mellah’s studio, ‘Liminality’ is the raw and organic first release from one of South London’s most engaging new voices. The songs detail Liam’s interactions and observations growing up in a city that changes beyond recognition as each year passes.

An impassioned storyteller, Liam was inspired to write EP opener ‘Round’ following a meeting with a former soldier in the British Army, hinting at the complexities of the human psyche while encapsulating the dark heart of his songcraft.

Despite being a relatively new project, Mellah’s song ‘Old Friend’ (the closing track on Liminality) has already featured on the latest season of Charlie Brooker’s acclaimed series Black Mirror. Continue reading →

The death of Mellah’s father made him see his own life in a new light

The south east London artist shares a new track, ‘Nada’, before his debut EP comes out this week.

“In short, ‘Nada’ is a song about death,” says Mellah, describing the new track he’s just shared.

“My father died a couple of years ago now,” he continues. “His sudden, unexpected departure paraded in front of me the stark inevitability of death, which I had never really been faced with before, and through it illuminated the immediacy and beauty of my own life. ‘Nada’ is my memento mori if you like.”

It’s one of the tracks to appear on a new five-song EP that Liam Ramsden – Mellah – will put out on Friday (12 May). It’s called ‘Liminality’ and will come out via Lucky Number.

“My dad was a photographer, he gave me my first film SLR when I was 17. The video is simply every photograph I have ever taken with that camera.” Continue reading →
