Premiere: Mélat – Gladiator x Treasure

blame it on Meka March 4, 2015

Mélat has been one of our favorite artists at the DopeHouse. From her one-off “side b” series to her latest EP with Jansport J Move Me, the Austin-raised singer has consistently given fans beautifully soulful music. Today, Mélat gives us the green light to debut not one, but two new songs: an original, formerly vaulted song, and a wonderful take on a recent Just Blaze release. Check them both out below.


“Gladiator” f. Doeman

“I’ve had this song on my heart for about a year now. It’s about the readiness to be called into action and to do great things if only given the chance. Produced by Texas native Pha The Phenom and featuring Houston’s Doeman, ‘Gladiator’ is a representation of the musical angst flowing throughout Texas right now, artists of all genres are bubbling, artists of all genres are ready.”


“Treasure (Moleskin Conclusion)”

“As soon as I heard this production on 2DopeBoyz, I was moved to record to it. ‘Treasure’ is about taking the opportunity to dig deeper into a person, past the vanity so that ‘maybe you’ll find something you never knew existed.’ Produced by Just Blaze, this is my take on his beat ‘Moleskin Conclusion.'”
