Music Through Pictures is where we attempt to highlight the relationship between art, sound, images and music whilst also getting an insight into the musical minds of some of our favourite DJs and producers…

It’s easy to lose sight of just how much Thomas Melchior has produced over his time within the music industry. Diving deeper and more intimately involved with his music over the course of a 20+ year career, Melchior has embraced the challenges and time required to create something memorable and worthwhile. Melchior first made a name for himself at the beginning of the 90’s releasing on Aphex Twins’ Rephlex label as part of electronica duo Vulva together with Tim Hutton, and later as Yoni on Move D’s Source Records. To top this up he and Baby Ford reduced house music to its thinnest yet deepest elements and released music as Sunpeople, Soul Capsule, and part of the Ifach Collective and M-Core initially only on Trelik and Ifach but later on his own label Aspect Music. Member of Villalobos’ Narod Niki, Melchior ‘s work also includes collaborations with Luciano, Ricardo Villalobos, Bruno Pronsato, Zip and Fumiya Tanaka to name a few. As Melchior Productions, Thomas became one of the pillars of the minimal house movement on Perlon, Playhouse, a:rpia:r, Smallville and Cadenza. He remains one of the undergrounds true visionaries – an esteemed veteran, and master of the wheels of steel.
