Headlining this year’s Melting Pot is our man of the moment, Mark E. He is renowned for his reworks of disco and boogie classics, including a dazzling rework of Bobby Womack “Baby, I’m scared of you” and Tata Vega’s “Get it up for Love”, on the Jiscomusic label. Mark has gone from strength to strength in 2008, producing some of the year’s hottest dance floor tracks, as well as getting to re-release his widely acclaimed re-edit of Janet Jackson’s R&B Junkie. As well as releasing for Jiscomusic, Golf Channel, and Internasjonal he now also appears courtesy of Sonar Kollectiv with his latest release, Based On Misunderstandings 2. Expect house, soul, funk, disco, electroboogie and beyond!

DEPORTIVO STREET TEAM
Keeping with the Jiscomusic theme, Mark E's stablemate, and another man of the moment - The Revenge - forms one half of Glasgow duo, DST, who bring their own brand of electronic-sleaze-funk to Melting Pot for the first time. Given their influences range from early house and techno, to disco, funk and rock then it's safe to say they'll be bringing the heat with this exclusive live performance on Hogmanay.
