As a guitarist from the age of 13, Jay Brewer has had a musical past of playing in various bands, writing and performing soul, funk and jazz. This period allowed him to learn different musical styles, ranging from bossa nova to hip hop to flamenco. This helped broaden his knowledge of harmony, melody and rhythm for use in his own material.
His production combines this with his more recent love for electronic music, notably artists like Bonobo, Kaytranada and Sam Gellaitry. Wide sweeping synths fused with orchestral instrumentation and his soulful guitar style creates a blend of rich harmonies and delicate melodies. At the core are playful drum grooves and bass lines overlaid by intricate percussion. Merging these elements, Melliflux aims to create a deep and immersive listening experience.
