Mel Ody is staying as consistent as ever this year, releasing some of his best music to date. Not long after dropping his cover of “Feeling Good” featuring Canadian talent Arielle Minx, the forward-thinking producer is back with another explosive release, once again crafting epic and cinematic vibes with “Shelter.”
Out via Future Bass Records, “Shelter” sets the foundation of what’s about to follow very early with energetic vocals and captivating atmospheres immediately present in the tune. The drop ultimately explodes into a cataclasm of epic sound design and playful arpeggios that interact with hard-hitting drums masterfully, as Mel Ody showcases his production skills by giving everything its proper space and time to shine.
“With ‘Shelter’ I wanted to create a fierce, yet sad and kind of romantic song,” explains Mel Ody. “The feeling of being sheltered yet trying to escape from it and breathe one more time. The story is about an unconditional love without a happy ending. ‘Shelter’ is a mix of electronic and orchestral influences; starting off with a wide atmosphere under a stunning female vocal, followed by majestic choirs and an explosive drop, that I think encapsulates that energy perfectly.”
