"Michael Melchner is barely at the beginning of his 20s. Aged 18, he won a gig at Kiss Klub, the monthly party for electronic music in the Nuremberg in-location Die Rakete in a DJ contest. Ever since he is resident DJ there and he quickly made appetite-producing tracks by himself. At the moment deep house of the late '90s has to take a shine to him. In the detail it gets clear, that this is not only a copy of an epoch, but a certain vibe, which is going to be transferred into the present. This vibe with his warm sound, the well dosed house beats and a strong musical sense is hearable, but this sounds by no means antiquated. On the A-side, several instruments like percussion, xylophone and samples of a Mexican trumpet make sure that there isn't only an exiting variety shortly before or after the primetime, but also a proper portion of itchy feet. With the both tracks on the flip-side, the whole spectrum of Michael Melchner becomes clear: at the one hand a clear view on the dancefloor with classical house beats and on the other hand a musical character, which one misses in many current productions. 'Chen Chen' (B1) is slightly more complicated and more rhythmic whilst 'Nothing Happened' (B2) is a pleasing leaned back dramaturgical subtle house piece with a distinctive bass line and interspersed voice samples."
