Reso

Grotty, aggy, dark, brutal are all words used to describe the music of 27 year-old Alex Melia aka Reso, which is sometimes at odds with his boyhood dream of drumming in a jazz band. This frustrated sticks man, who has been hitting the skins for a number of bands including the ubiquitous Jamie Woon, instead pours his frenetic energy and love of breakbeats into his dubstep/breaks/ techno productions.

“I started making beats in 2002 when I got a PC and a bunch of cracked software.” Recounts Alex. “I was generally making whatever kind of music I was in the mood for, but it usually turned into tear out breaks and drum and bass for some reason.” A big breaks fan, Alex did work experience at Botchit & Scarper and would frequent Fabric on a regular basis to catch the likes of Ed209 and Baobinga. The busy percussive motifs of breakbeat heavily influenced the young Londoners sound, yet it was the emergent dubstep scene that captured his imagination and offered him a blank canvas.

A versatile producer and gifted DJ, Reso is a rising star, gaining worldwide notoriety for his technoid inspired productions which often transcends the dubstep tag that many have easily slotted him into. From the chugging metal guitars of Metal Slug, via the pulsating techno echoes of Identity, and into the bowels of the haunting, filtered sub bass workout of Holograms
