WMelo-X has often been described as a sonic creator or New York’s renaissance man, and both titles are fitting. Melo wears many hats he is a musician, photographer, designer, director, remixer, rapper, singer but to put it in one word Melo-X is an artist. ThroughWHOSE followed this Brooklyn Native around the world (6 countries and 9 cities to be exact). Since his journey around the world he has nested in the Bey-Hive. He has been busy laying production down for non other than Beyonce herself. Read his interview and see some of our favorite images below (titled by Melo – X)

What a great photo! (refer to photo titled “Amina at the Senso-ji Temple”) You really captured some great moments. Where was this photo taken? Did she get to walk away with a Kimono?
Thats Amina. She’s such a little angel and super intelligent!!! Some of my best moments in Japan was just chilling with her and playing. We visited the Senso-ji temple with her mom who is a good friend of mine.
To capture moments like that you must always have a camera on hand right? What Cameras do you shoot with besides disposables?
My fav is my vintage Canon Z115. I like using high quality film in it.
We see lots of Melo – X merch! Where can we get our hands on some? (refer to photos titled “DJ Eagle Fujita” and “Stylist KRKW and his wife”)
We see this girl pop up in some photos! (refer to photos titled “Jasmine Solano and Vashtie in London” and “Jasmine Solano in London” And in lots of different places…The photos tell a story but can you tell us a bit of where you traveled?
Thats my amazing DJ partner Jasmine Solano. We took out party Electric Punanny on a world tour. We visited 6 countries and 9 cities. We literally made a 360 around the planet.
