Straight out of Amsterdam, MC Melodee is the front woman of soulful hip hop band La Melodia. Releasing her first La Melodia album with legendary Japanese label Handcuts in 2007, MC Melodee positioned herself as the hottest European female on the mic. With La Melodia she toured through Europe on the Stones Throw tour with Oh No, Guilty Simpson, Percee P and DJ Romes.
After Europe, the demand for her music was growing internationally and she began to perform all over the globe. She performed in the USA (such as at Q-Tip & Rich Medina’s night Open at Santos Party House), Japan, Africa, Indonesia and of course all over Europe. Her second release “Electronic Love” was spread worldwide together with Holland’s most well known blogger Nalden, and includes a remix by world famous producers Cookin' Soul. This collaboration led to the release of MC Melodee’s first solo project "Check Out Melodee" in 2012. On this mixtape, which is mainly produced by Cookin Soul, MC Melodee collaborates with different artists such as Mac Miller, Smiff n Wessum, Chuck Inglish (Cool Kids), Ohno, Mucho Muchacho, Griffi and DJ Whoo Kid.
After the success of this mixtape MC Melodee decided to do an official album called "My Tape Deck" together with the Spanish production team, in April 2013. This 90’s inspired hip hop album, which was released on Jakarta Records in Germany, is a more personal album and has features on it by Bootie Brown / The Pharcyde and Jetlife rapper Fiend. In 2013 Melodee visits the US (NY, LA, NO) to perform at CMJ NY, record videos and hit the studio with respectable US hip hop artists. In 2014 this leads to the release of 3 different EP’s with featurings and productions by US artists: AG (D.I.T.C.), Illa J, Chuck Inglish, Like (Pac Div) and others. The video singles for Coolin EP, In My Zone EP and Crunch
Time EP were recorded in Amsterdam, New York and Valencia (ES). Melodee’s international appeal is confirmed by her first European Tour which takes place that same year (spring 2014). Together with DJ EZD Melodee performs in many European cities in France, Poland, Germany, Sweden, Spain, Switzerland, Italy and much more. After a memorable performance on HipHopKemp (CZ) & Bahidora (MEX) more international music collaborations, festivals and shows follow in 2015. This leads up to an official MC Melodee EU Tour early 2016. MC Melodee’s album “Passport Pimpin” produced entirely by Cookin’ Soul is next up, and is released in July 2016 on the German label Vinyl Digital. This album is a mix of different influences creating a new and contemporary sound. Neosoul meets trap, and meets the golden era, all with an international twist to it which can be heard on its videosingles that are recorded in Bangkok, Tokyo, Albufera and Valencia. In 2017 Melodee releases her album “Love Junkie” digitally on all musical platforms, which is followed up by shows in Chile, Ecuador, Switzerland and Japan a.o. in the years after. After being forced to take a break because of covid in 2020 and 2021, MC Melodee and Cookin Soul release their most recent album “Bonafide” in 2022 on all digital platforms, as well as on vinyl.
