Melody’s Enemy

"I started using my SUBPAC as a necessity whilst in a temporary studio where I couldn’t crank the levels. It’s since become a key tool in my new studio for dialing in kicks and balancing the bottom end"

Melody’s Enemy is the moniker of British electronic music producer and DJ Andy Haeffele. Formerly a duo with Morgan Jones. A somewhat unorthodox pairing in modern Techno, the duo honed their craft within the drum and bass scene, releasing and performing for many of its best labels such as Playaz, Ram
and Metalheadz. A reconvergence in 2015 saw them form Melody’s Enemy – a project designed to channel their shared ethos of ruggedness and “golden-era” d&b aesthetic into modern, cutting-edge techno. They were quickly spotted by Dense & Pika, and began releasing on their ground-breaking Kneaded Pains imprint. Surging forward ever since the pair have delivered a series of critically-acclaimed ep’s on Octopus Recordings, Kneaded Pains, Phobiq and Of Unsound Mind.

Already respected for their production, Melody’s Enemy have since collaborated with Dense & Pika and Drumcode’s Vinicius Honorio on killer releases “From Nothing” and “Thrillseekers” respectively as well as crafting “Reach” alongside Balthazar & Jackrock – released on Terminal M and a mainstay in sets from Monika Kruse.

They also teamed up with Croydon’s-favourite-son Skream to craft a 2 track EP that was quickly snapped up by Alan Fitzpatrick for release on We Are The Brave and now having received well over 1 million streams on Spotify.

In-demand remixers, sonically the duo’s mantra resonates from the roots of the dirty London dancefloors they trod for many years. Unafraid of vocal work and ‘song’ writing, cultivators of detuned, off-world sound design and heavy hitting palettes, they have gained extensive and continued support from names such as: Adam Beyer, Carl Cox, Chris Liebing, Dubfire, Layton, Giordani, Tiga, Maya Jane Coles, Enrico Sangiuliano and more. Following Morgan’s departure from the group in Summer 2020 Andy has forged ahead launching his own imprint Dark The Light releasing the critically acclaimed debut “Ignition” as well as the popular “Anti Tory Techno Club” merchandise range. An experienced & accomplished performer, the Melody’s Enemy hybrid DJ set incorporates live loops, percussion and unique sound pallets to compliment the cutting-edge music selection.
