Here at Blisspop, we have some incredible things in the works and we are excited to announce one of those things today. Starting this month, we will be presenting some of our favorite DJs in the world through our event series, “Blisspop Presents”. Our first event (which we will be co-hosting with District Inferno) will take place on Saturday, June 29 at Backbar at 9:30 Club with headliner Melvo Baptiste of Glitterbox Recordings and Defected Records.
Based in London, Baptiste has built an extensive career in radio and DJing. Raised on disco, funk and soul music, he was drawn to radio via listening to his uncle’s BBC Radio London program. As he began his DJ career, he was asked to join online radio station Mi-Soul in 2012 and continues to present a weekly program on Saturday mornings. Baptiste is also a regular at festivals such as Southport Weekender, Defected Croatia and Lovebox.
In 2017, Baptiste was asked to present Glitterbox’s weekly online radio show, where he showcases the best of classic and new disco and house sounds. Since its inception, he has grown the program to being syndicated on over 40 global radio stations and reaching the top spot on iTunes UK’s podcast chart. On top of his radio and DJ duties, he acts as A&R for Glitterbox Recordings and Soul Heaven Records, as well as their parent label, Defected Records.

We look forward to seeing you on June 29 beginning at 11pm, and keep your ears peeled for more Blisspop Presents events in the future!
