The Hot Conversation: Mélat

The Hot Conversation

Ovrld has teamed up with Austin Mic Exchange and the League DJs for a new podcast called The Hot Conversation. Co-hosted by Protextor and J-Ro, the purpose of this podcast is to shine a light on weird culture all around Austin, from poetry to fashion to comedy to music (we do, however, have a soft spot for Texas hip hop). JRo outta #LeagueDJs spins and breaks tracks from Texas musicians and in the meantime, he and Protextor sit down and chop it up over Lone Star Beers with a different guest each week. The result is a casual hang with real people doing cool shit in ATX. It’s not radio and it’s not an interview — it’s a hot conversation. Today we talk to Mélat, one of the most talented new voices in R&B, who has been featured in The Fader and also just received Artist of the Month accolades from the Austin American-Statesman. We talked to Mélat about being on the BBC, Harry Potter spoilers, her caffeine addiction and more. Be sure to check her out tomorrow, February 18th at Vinyl for her album release party!
