Mjiri is the moniker of London-based British-Nigerian producer, performer and educator Mel Uye-Parker.
Uye-Parker has been making music for over 15 years – as a vocalist and writer, working with the likes of Rae & Christian and Yesking – but more recently, under the moniker of Mjiri as explored a flair for stunning sonic distillations that transfix and captivate. Latest single ‘Stamp City’ is a dancefloor ready banger. It is bright, transfixing and utterly addicting as sputtering and choppy electronics and burbling synthesizers are stitched together with acid squelches, house basslines, winding techno and ravey tones. The stuttering beats are delivered with clinical precision as we are utterly captivated by this marriage acid/house/techno which, as it goes, will get your body grooving (and no doubt dancefloors moving).
