In 2002, Melting Pot Music was founded by Oliver “Olski” von Felbert, a DJ, music activist and former Groove Attack/Superrappin A&R from Cologne, Germany. The first commercial release was a 45 single by Lefties Soul Connection from Amsterdam: 500 copies have been manufactured and sold-out within three weeks. A couple of years later, MPM is the home of artists like DJ Day, A-ko, Devil McDoom, Hawkeye, Le Scratchfunk, Upskiboo and Imperial Breed. The signature Melting Pot Music sound is deeply rooted in hip-hop music (and culture) while the MPM artists come from places all over the globe such as Amsterdam, Palm Springs, Kopenhagen, Paris, Hamburg etc. MPM is taking the old to the new, and they have just begun!
