Born in Germany and partly raised in USA, Spain and England, Thomas Melchior has been resident in London for over 20 years. There he also started his musical career as composer /singer and keyboarder in an arty/electronic five-piece band (BLIPVERT BIGTOP), releasing records on their own label and performing in small London clubs. After downsizing and renaming to OHM, their fusing early electronic experimental and funkadelic based jazz and funk caught the attention of the likes of Afrika Bambaataa, DJ Smash Hunter (Eightball), Acid Jazz and Talking Loud.
A young Judge Jules who along with Roy The Roach (Quaff Records) and Dan Donovan (Big Audio Dynamite) helped release some of their material. Being ahead of their time success, Ohm's "Heady Volt Experience EP" (with it's fusion of jazz, techno, hip hop and funk) however had an undeniable influence on the much later emerging trip hop scene. James Lavelle/Mo Wax was an ardent admirer and put in his all time Top 20).
As the years went by Thomas' interests (with the help of a couple of Technics SL 1200s) shifted towards producing more deep and tracky style house tunes and after touring the USA as members of Lady Miss Kiers' (Deee-Lite) outfit, Thomas and Tim went their seperate musical ways however continuing to help each other out in the future. Thomas moved to New York familiarizing himself with the american house and techno scene before returning to London where he started to work with by now old friend Peter "Baby" Ford. The releases quickly mounted under various monikers namely SUNPEOPLE, SOUL CAPSULE (Trelik), IFACH COLLECTIVE, M-CORE (Ifach), before establishing his more personal London speed garage influenced deep hypnotic and sexy micro house. Setting a new manifesto on his label ASPECT MUSIC in 2000/2001 and reaching cult status after three 12"s, MELCHIOR PRODUCTIONS was born and soon was releasing on labels Perlon and Playhouse.
